DATA PROTECTION SERVICES
If you are a medium size business, you need every
employee and every resource possible to be focusing on
driving the growth of your company. Information security
often takes a back seat to increasing sales and streamlining
operations. Unfortunately, it is precisely this pattern of
behavior that has led to Gartner’s latest research which
indicates that between 2007 and 2009, the SMB sector
will become the primary target of malicious behavior on the
Of course, this makes sense. If the bad guys can spend
ten minutes to gain access to your data, why would they
spend months attacking a global enterprise? The Fortune 500
have been dealing with security threats for many years and
have invested millions into protecting their assets. As a
medium-sized business, you don’t have that luxury.
BUT, there is hope!
You are why Pervasive Solutions exists. We deeply desire
to help you protect your business and your clients. Our
goal is to give you the same level of protection that your
enterprise-level competitors have, but at a small fraction
of the cost. Pervasive Solutions’ Outsourced Security
Services protect you from these global threats while
enabling you to continue to focus on what you do best.
What if You Did It Yourself?
If you were to truly secure all of your data, systems and
communications, how would you do it? Where would you need
to invest time and money? At a minimum, you would need to
cover the following key areas:
- Security Team. You would need to
hire at least one and possibly up to four or five
full-time specialized (which translates to ‘expensive’)
resources to implement and monitor your security
- Security Technologies. You would
need to purchase all of the technologies necessary to
implement a thorough multi-layered security defense.
- Security Policies & Procedures.
You would need to spend the time to document the
policies and procedures that your organization needs to
follow on a daily basis.
- Security Training. You would need
to regularly provide security training to your employees
to reinforce the importance of following those policies
and to educate them on the threats that they may run
The cost of covering these bases for
the next four years is likely to be well over one million
dollars. And that’s not the bad news. The cost of not
doing it could be your entire business.
But if You Outsource…
So how can you receive the benefits of your own security
office without incurring the cost associated with it? What
if you could share the costs with other similar sized
businesses? That’s essentially what you’re doing when you
outsource your security – sharing the costs with our other
clients while still reaping all the benefits of having your
own security office.
