 “With the shortage in skilled security personnel, the increasing number of cyber attacks, the ambiguity of cloud solutions and security therein, along with the digitization of everything and IoT, we feel that security is a huge area of need for our customers.  Information Technology professionals are being asked to not only improve efficiency, reduce costs, but also to ensure business continuity, protect the network and data, as well as its organization’s reputation.  That’s a tall order for IT staffs that are already stretched thin.  SMP wants to help and this natural extension of security offerings fits the bill.” states SMP’s Security Practice Lead Scott Carruthers. “We will continue to expand our security offerings and address customer need in the future.”
