In recent years, researchers have noted sharp increases in the number of successful attacks against the small- to medium-sized business (SMB). These attacks are ever increasing and successful due primarily to two factors. First, SMBs have valuable assets to be had. Secondly they don't have the budgets to support the security talent and in-house technology they desperately need to adequately defend those
assets. EMA analysts see that this is a part of the SMB lifecycle, the consequence of long-term security neglect. Longstanding resource insufficiency and the limited availability of security expertise has left many SMBs vulnerable to the expanding epidemic of attacks that have the efficiency and impact fully industrialized scale. Today, however, SMBs are recognizing that they can leverage cloud-based security technologies and services to make significant advances in reversing the consequences of long-term neglect, giving them the opportunity to rebalance the scales to their advantage. As a long term player and an established leader in cloud security, Qualys is among those championing this trend, with solutions such as QualysGuard Express Lite, which is tailored to the needs of the SMB.
