The 2018 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report showed that businesses with fewer than 250 employees were the victims of 58 percent of cyberattacks. It has been a trend for small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) to be targeted by cybercriminals for some time now. To them, the SMB represents low-hanging fruit. A lack of security knowledge and inadequate security technologies help fuel this trend.
This is where Check Point Software Technologies, a partner of Rutter Technologies, can help. When combined with a knowledgeable team of professionals from the right managed service provider (MSP), your organization has the tools in place to stop malware and other cybersecurity threats before they do damage to your network and reputation.

The Importance of Choosing the Right Vendor for Security
Businesses of all sizes have learned that security is something to take seriously. Gartner expects that spending on security products and services will increase 12.4 percent over last year to an estimated $124 billion.
Unfortunately, many organizations throw money away when it comes to security budgets. They may buy products that are not right for their size, throwing money at solutions that do not address their problem. Other times, they may implement solutions that aren’t able to scale as they grow, leaving a gap in their security posture. In many situations, security products are vetted and purchased, but they are not configured or managed properly, resulting in gaping security holes or restrictions that do not allow people to do their jobs effectively.
Companies may also try to create piecemeal security defenses, purchasing technologies as funding permits. Although it may seem that they are putting the right layers of defense in place, the truth is that these products don’t always work well together. When integration becomes an issue, security suffers.
Pairing the right technology with the right partner to manage it is the only way to ensure that you are doing right by your organization and its security needs. This is why an end-to-end solution such as Check Point can be so important to a solid defense. Having technologies that work together under one management system means you can be assured you have visibility and protection across your organization.
