Recently Information Week took a look at how small and medium business (SMBs) are adapting to the cloud through a survey done by Symantec, an internet security firm that specializes in cloud security. Although they found that basic cloud computing services have been adapted by a large number of SMBs, virtualization is still seen as primarily the purview of larger enterprise companies.
The major points discovered in the Small Business Virtualization Poll of 658 small and medium sized businesses across 28 countries were:
- SMBs embrace cloud computing but are still struggling to adapt virtualization
- SMBs understand the virtues of virtualization but see security as a remaining issue
- Many SMBs still don’t backup their servers because they lack staff or knowledge
For more information on how your SMB can improve its security in the clouds and a link to a checklist to help you implement and maintain cloud computing security measures, please continue reading here.
