Data protection is a big challenge to Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and to ensure it they need to use proper security solutions, said experts.

"To grow your business, you need to help customers securely connect to the business applications they want, and when they want them. You also need to provide easy but secure access to key internal resources for employees and partners," said Vijayanth Rai, Director, Channel Sales, CA Technologies, India.

He added that CA Technologies keeps in mind the security of SME business and help them with proper security solutions as many SMEs are unaware about data security mechanism.

"Security solutions from CA Technologies can help SMEs to enable and protect their business, while leveraging key technologies such as cloud, mobile, and virtualisation -- securely to provide the agility that they need to respond quickly to market and competitive events," Rai said.

"CA Technologies' products and services can help Small and Medium businesses to enhance the security of their information system and also enable their business while protecting critical applications and data," he also mentioned.

Nikhil Arora, Vice President and Managing Director, Intuit India said that the small businesses should be aware about their vendor or supplier of technology.

"They need to do some due diligence, looking at the history and track-record of how they have been in the business," he said.

He also said that SMEs should adopt any product in a phased manner. "...I will recommend SMEs to do is to adopt things in a phased manner. When they buy a product they should start slow and try with some data then slowly escalate to the more confidential data, this will build trust," he told SME Times.

According to a Deloitte survey, privacy incidents and breaches that required customer notification occur often inside organizations.

It said that more than 35 percent of survey respondents reported between six and ten privacy incidents, and more than 43 percent reported more than ten incidents in the last 12 months.

In this context, Nitin Hiranandani, Director, Printing Systems, PPS, HP India  said,  "Large organizations and developing SMEs around the globe face a new threat to mission-critical business information: from individuals seeking to access and exploit valuable business intelligence."

"As a result, printer-based security breaches have the potential to expose an organization and its employees, customers, and partners to myriad risks and unexpected costs," he said.

"Forward-thinking organizations can't afford to wait for a security crisis to occur down the road; they're getting prepared today," he also added.

Great article, Kath. No doubt SMBs/SMEs are vital to our economy. Security breaches can be detrimental which is why at Mosaic Technology, we are firm believers in being preventative in security measures. Backing up and data recovery are systems that should be implemented early and tested often. Meaghen Mosaic Technology.
