Whether wired or wireless, midsize business networks are typically less secure than their larger enterprise counterparts, a fact that isn’t lost on cyber criminals. Midsize businesses need to adopt a comprehensive approach to security that protects them from both internal and external threats.

A simple firewall is no longer enough to stop today’s sophisticated threats. Instead, midsize businesses need to follow their enterprise counterparts and adopt a multi-layered, integrated security strategy that is centralized and protects the entire network, including mobile applications and identities, the cloud, virtualized data and applications and storage.

Midsize businesses are affected by many of the same network pain points as large enterprises. The networks at midsize businesses need to be flexible, reliable and easy to manage. Performance is an issue for midsize business networks, just as it is for larger enterprises.

One of the challenges that midsize businesses face when building out a network infrastructure is they don’t have as many skills to apply to the task as a large enterprise. As this slideshow continues, we’re going to discuss some of the things that midsize businesses need to keep in mind as they build out a network for both wired and wireless devices.
