The Exclusive Spirit: Your Five-Tooled SMB Security Solution

Discover the five security tools SMB customers need if they don’t want to become another statistic.

Small to midsize businesses must have five security tools in their arsenal – or else they risk becoming another statistic.

“Sixty percent of SMBs that get seriously hacked don’t recover,” says Elliott Long, technology evangelist at Exclusive Networks. Cybercriminals are stealing client proprietary data and destroying their reputation. Solution providers must partner with companies that can steer customers to specific technologies that won’t break any budgets.

“We can understand a company pretty well, because we’ve seen it before,” says Long. “We can say, ‘Hey, you’re a lot like this other company that we know about, and they’ve really benefited from this specific technology to help out their cybersecurity. Why don’t we extend that to you?’”

Long says there are five security tools partners must sell to their SMB customers to keep them safe – next-gen firewall, endpoint protection, identity access management, patching and encryption. “This is going to get you safe right now,” says Long.

Exclusive Networks provides partners with ready-made security solutions through Fortinet’s SMB Security in a Box.

What is SMB Security in a Box?

A packaged set of important tools solution providers can sell to their customers at an affordable price. “Companies will spend enormous amounts of time making decisions about what they need to buy and if it’s going to help them or not,” says Long. “For a small business, they don’t have to spend any of that time.”

Partners can also take advantage of Exclusive Networks’ training on any Fortinet technology. These customized sessions help solution providers stay informed on the latest cybersecurity trends and solutions, and ultimately, help keep their customers from becoming statistics.
