Most people agree that small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are a significant source of the innovation that fuels growth, but a lesser recognized fact is the critical role of start-ups in economic recovery. A new report from the Kauffman Foundation indicates that the pace of recovery in hiring and job creation since 2008 is stronger in newer firms – 4 out of every 10 hires at young firms are for newly created jobs.

Supporting small businesses, established and new, in their development and growth is germane to the economy. A major part of small businesses’ success now and in the future will increasingly derive from their business relationships with large corporations. More...

There’s a lot of talk about cloud security be it (1) security for the cloud, which protects your cloud initiatives such as data stored in the cloud or (2) security from the cloud, also known as security-as-a-service (SecaaS), which uses the cloud to deliver some aspect of protection, like messaging, anti-virus or web security. Though proven and effective, many SMBs overlook SecaaS because the cloud still feels like an unknown for many, and we naturally fear what we don’t understand.

We’ve all heard about how regular forest fires clear the way for new life, making a healthier ecosystem overall. And if there is a silver lining to be found in the struggling global economy of the last few years, it’s the emergence of a new breed of entrepreneurs who are utilizing the latest technology to effectively compete in today’s challenging business environment. These “accidental entrepreneurs” found themselves in a difficult economic situation and decided to make their own opportunities.

The millions of white-collar workers who were laid off between 2008 and 2011 certainly play a big part in rising global unemployment, which is now totals 27 million more people than on the eve of the global economic crisis in 2007. But a subset of these individuals, those who founded small businesses in the wake of the economic crisis, are a positive and growing force...

One of the great challenges businesses face today is enabling productivity by giving people access to the resources they need, without compromising the safety of that information. And while it’s not always easy to see the risks, recent events have made it obvious that disaster can strike at any time, in many different ways.
