Your own restricted IT resources can focus on something more business critical when you let the service provider take care of security.
Just the clean-up costs of a malware attack can be staggering. However, they are just the beginning. The loss of confidential data, the lost working time and other indirect costs can be many times bigger.
- Complexity of the environment:
You can decrease the complexity of your IT environment when you entrust a service provider with the comprehensive view of your information security.
