Spam costly for SMBs
At the event, hosted by security vendor MessageLabs, SMBs from multiple industries admitted that controlling unsolicited emails has become a time consuming and costly task that could jeopardize business.
"SMBs can't afford to have specialists in every field," commented Mario Robles, Financial Administrator for Poole's Rock Wines. "How much is it costing when your CEO, on a $200k salary, is spending 15-20 minutes a day pressing 'delete'?"
Robles added that when he had to multi-task and fix an infected computer that generates orders, money could easily be lost. "SMBs might not be able to recover from a disaster," he said. "One computer down could cost thousands of dollars."
