According to a recent IDC Report, “Small and medium-sized businesses have as much need for information technology as much larger companies. They also require security because they are a target of cybercriminals, but there are unique issues that prevent SMBs from just buying what large enterprises purchase.”
Although companies of all sizes can fall victim to malware and security breaches, tight budgets and a lack of resources typically impact small businesses that are oftentimes obligated to deploy low-end security products that lack necessary security functions. And these functions don’t necessarily scale as the business grows or their needs evolve.

- Web application control features
- Network firewall & IPS
