Security firm AVG Technologies has launched an online IT security resource centre for small- and medium-sized businesses.
The Business Resource Centre is aimed at providing business owners and IT managers with guides, videos, demos and tools to help them protect their business from internet and network security threats.
The centre was set up in response to the AVG research, which showed that despite 83% of SMBs polled recognising the need to protect against internet security threats, only one in seven SMBs is protected.
"As our research shows, small businesses have a fundamental understanding that internet security threats can be a hazard to their businesses, but they obviously lack the time or the resources to adequately protect their businesses from cyber criminals who may try to steal valuable company information," said Robert Gorby, global head of SMB propositions, AVG.
"AVG's small business resource centre is designed to educate small- and medium-sized business owners about online threats to their businesses and provide them with a myriad of resources to help protect themselves from these threats," he said.
