Recently, technology research giant Gartner released another “Cool Vendors” report entitled “Cool Vendors in Security for Midsize Enterprises.”
According to Gartner, “these vendors offer a compelling combination of innovation and midsize enterprise suitability. Midsize enterprise IT leaders responsible for security and risk management should familiarize themselves with these impactful approaches to improving security posture with finite resources.”
It is tempting for midsized businesses, small enterprises, or start-ups to believe that hackers and other digital threat actors will pass over them to seek out larger, globally known, and thus more lucrative enterprise targets. However, nothing could be further from the truth. Hackers are more likely to target businesses that are the easiest cyber targets. Without deploying a solution for security for midsize enterprises on your network, you essentially become that easier target—laying the out the welcome may for a breach. Just because midsized enterprises don’t make the headlines doesn’t mean they aren’t at risk in the digital world. Instead, they’re the most vulnerable to the wave of amateur threat actors.
