No, but sometimes it surely seems that way.

Just as Amazon has transformed the retail world, its Amazon Web Services unit is transforming the world of data centers and IT management.

Your SMB clients aren't worrying enough about cyber security

Peter Krass's picture

Here’s why: More than 15 percent of small and medium businesses (SMBs) have been the victims of cyber attacks. And a whopping 60 percent had to close their doors within 6 months of a data breach.

Yet when asked which issues they’re most concerned about, fewer than a third (28%) of SMB executives mentioned the safety and security of their technology, email and documents.
