Bringing Enterprise Solutions to the Small-to-Medium-Sized Business

Bringing Enterprise Solutions to the Small-to-Medium-Sized Business

A small-to-medium-sized business, by definition, isn’t going to have the same resources that are afforded to enterprise corporations, especially where its IT is concerned. However, this doesn’t mean that the SMB is stuck using sub-par solutions. Here, we’ll review a few key needs of any business, and the solutions that an SMB can access to meet them.

Security

Of course, any business that hopes to have any success is going to need to have effective security to keep its resources safe. The first step to doing so is to evaluate your IT so that you can identify any shortcomings that exist in your infrastructure as it is. An IT risk assessment is an effective way to do so, as it provides insight into where the biggest, riskiest security flaws are. Both enterprise organizations and SMBs can then leverage similar tools to resolve these flaws, including firewalls, antivirus, and multi-factor authentication measures.

With the increased use of cloud service providers in the SMB space, much of this should be attended to by the provider. Having said that, any business that leverages the services of a third-party needs to ensure that the third-party is meeting their end of the service-level agreement. If they are, an SMB can find that they can accomplish comparable security as an enterprise could without expending an enterprise-sized portion of their operating budget.

Data Storage

While their budgets put enterprise businesses in a much more favorable position to create an infrastructure that can contend with their operational needs, this is not to say that SMBs are left without any options. Any good data storage solution will perform well based on a few benchmarks: how well it works, how often it works, how easily it can be accessed, and how easily its contents can be searched.

The enterprise business has quite a few options to leverage, such as data tiering (where data of differing importance is stored on different servers) and higher-performing data storage solutions. If this is starting to sound expensive, it is - but again, thanks to the cloud, SMBs aren’t left without options, either. With scalable Infrastructure-as-a-Service and Platform-as-a-Service being available for a much more affordable rate, SMBs are able to leverage the advanced tools that would otherwise only be available to corporate-level businesses.
