SMBs must protect data in the cloud

Published:

While the cloud continues to become part of the basic infrastructure for many small and midsize businesses, data security companies are offering new cloud-based products. For example, WatchGuard Technologies recently launched virtualized solutions. 

The WatchGuard XTMv - Virtualized Extensible Threat ManagementFour editions of XTMv are being launched for small, medium and large businesses, which offer security measures such as application control, reputation enabled defense, intrusion prevention, gateway anti-virus and web blocking traffic shaping. The WatchGuard products also offer anti-spam and malware protection.    

"For small and midsized businesses the cloud is real, and WatchGuard is ready to protect it," said Eric Aarrestad, vice president of marketing at WatchGuard. "Hardware-based security is great and will be the mainstay for many businesses. However, there are many businesses now that are taking advantage of virtualization."

These security solutions give businesses of all sizes the ability to use a secure cloud environment, but they are not the end-all when it comes to security. By purchasing cyber liability insurance, businesses can make sure they are protected from financial fallout from customer data loss.
