15 Percent of SMBs Have no Firewall
A new study by Panda Security finds that small businesses lack industry standard protection methods.
The results of a study by Panda Security posted on PR-USA.net revealed that 46-percent of SMBs have been victims of cyber crime. Many are simply not investing in the anti-spam, anti-virus, and firewall technologies needed to protect their systems. A surprising 13-percent of businesses in the U.S. said they had no security system to speak of in place.
"'Even though we highly recommend free security software such as Panda's Cloud Antivirus to consumers, the free software available on the market is not sufficient to secure even smaller corporate networks from all sides,' said Correll. 'SMBs should invest in security solutions that protect their servers and network communications, and include advanced security features such as centralized and policy-based management.'"
