Why should small businesses get their first server?



By Lainie Guthrie

SMB Solutions and Route to Market 


SMB customers are vulnerable! Valuable data that resides on personal PCs, laptops, mobile devices, and USB drives is subject to drive failure, loss or theft. Viruses, malware and cyber-attacks can affect all of their valuable business data. Reliance on email or USB drives to share files results in multiple versions and lost productivity.


The Opportunity: 38M businesses world-wide, with 49 employees or less, have not yet purchased a server but would benefit from the value that a server would bring to their business.(1)

The Solution: Propose a centralized first server solution and explain the value a server brings for tackling remote access and management, collaboration to increase productivity, and consistent backup and security solutions to protect their critical information assets.
