As an email security vendor we’ve been driving the point home for 13 years that clients need to protect their data. Through our channel we’ve been espousing this point of view for just as long. We have a large number of partners (3000 and counting) who are actively working with clients to get this message across. Unfortunately, its taken some big companies publicly being shamed for their lack of security measures to start making a big impact in how SMB’s handle their own security. If you have a client who is unsure of the potential risk you would be hard pressed for a better article to help you get to the meat of the situation than the one below. Enjoy!
