Advantages of small business cloud; it’s as uncomplicated as ABC

With the changing reseller market landscape moving from a traditional break and fix to a managed services model, resellers still hesitate to offer cloud services to their small business customers for reasons of cost and complexity. Major advances are now being made by some vendors to make managed cloud services altogether easier. Essential security services such as antivirus and content filtering are especially suited to sell to small businesses via the cloud. Your customers only pay for what they use while you can manage everything remotely. At a single stroke you can reduce the number of site visits you need to make and spot opportunities to offer additional services. It’s a win-win all round.

This MicroScope event series, in association with AVG, will provide an insight into just what is happening in the cloud market, how cloud security for small businesses can be more profitable and details of just what the solutions are to help the channel start taking full advantage of the flexibility that cloud computing can offer.
