How SMBs can bring their security testing on par with larger enterprises


What are the challenges of securing small and medium-sized enterprises vs. larger ones? And how can automated, continuous security testing help shrink the gap?

When studying the differences between cyber security for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) and larger enterprises, several components factor into how securing SMEs is different. Here’s a breakdown.

Business hour coverage

To monitor systems for suspicious activity, larger enterprises have security operations teams working in shifts 24×7. At best, SMEs may have business-hour coverage. Alternatively, some may choose to offload IT security-related work to a managed security service provider, or MSSP, who in turn can provide 24×7 coverage.
