SMBs spend an average of $51,000 per year on security and data protection solutions.
After years of high-visibility data breaches and advocacy by security experts within small and midsized businesses, it seems that the message is finally sinking in with small business leaders. A new survey out this week from Symantec shows that SMBs believe that protecting information is their highest IT priority, a big gain over last year when the majority of SMBs queried didn't even have AV deployed.
