Our security solution takes a three-prong approach to help keep your business secure.
Off The Shelf, Expensive
Buy expensive commercial products that reduce the amount of time highly specialized IT security personnel needs to spend to keep your business secure, or;
Open Source Solutions
Use Open Source software that requires much more time from highly specialized IT security personnel.
This second model is not cost effective either, because IT security employees are in such demand that their salaries are high.
Alternatively, if you had a lot of locations, you could drive down the cost on a per location basis, sharing centralized work across more sites. But having many locations is not the usual make-up of a small business.
