Small and Midsize Businesses, Big Security Issues

Anne Bisagno


If you want your clients, investors, and other current and potential business partners to trust you, you need to be able to prove you're paying attention to data security. Are you making these mistakes uncovered in a recent survey of security practices at SMBs?



23 percent of SMBs surveyed had poor external security: open ports, outdated applications and services, and DNS misconfigurations 



100 percent of those with poor external security also had poor internal security: weak password policies, no antivirus protection, "ghost" accounts that haven't been used in at least a year, improper patching procedures 
Even 54 percent of those with good internal security had poor external security 


If you're not sure your company is being smart about security both inside and out, give us a call.
