After years of anticipation, the shift to Zero Trust security has finally achieved lift-off. Large, well-established cybersecurity solution providers such as Zscaler, Fortinet, and Cisco, are squaring off against agile, born-in-the-cloud start-ups for leadership in the market.

Of course, “the market” on which most are focused comprises the large, deep-pocketed enterprises that can afford to rip-and-replace complete security stacks and have sufficient IT staff and consulting budgets to take on large projects.

For small and midsize organizations, the picture is a little less rosy. The move to remote work, increasing dependence on cloud computing and storage, and the rapid increases in cyberattack frequency, cost and severity have left them exposed. Yet few have the budget for an end-to-end overhaul of their security stack, and even fewer have the IT human resources needed to manage the process.

In our most recent e-book, “Addressing the Cybersecurity Challenges Facing Today’s Distributed Midsize Enterprises and SMBs”, we’ve looked at the challenges faced by midsize enterprises and small organizations and came up with some ideas that can help. This short infographic summarizes some of the main points. Hope you find this information useful!
