Are You Budgeting for IT Security?

b2ap3_thumbnail_IT_security_budget_400.jpgIt’s the nature of technology to grow more complex over time, and as it does, the types of threats grow alongside it. Security is now more important than ever before, and if your business is not prepared to handle the threats that lurk in the shadows, your organization could be running with an unnecessary crutch.

As you can imagine, businesses large and small alike are making their network security a top priority. It might not seem like a lot of cash, but Gartner estimates that about five percent of of a business’s annual. IT budget is dedicated toward security. Of course, not all businesses need to spend the same amount on IT, since their needs vary by industry; yet, it can’t be emphasized enough that security is an imperative part of your IT infrastructure.

There are a lot of threats out there that can potentially ruin your business, but how can you justify investing in a solution to prevent something that isn’t guaranteed to happen at some point or another? The answer is to take preventative measures. By protecting against potential threats, you can avoid expensive repercussions. This is what White Mountain IT Services’s managed IT solutions are all about. We prevent issues from turning into bigger problems.
