For the enterprise business, this is an advantage, since most digital tools are developed with the B2B enterprise space in mind. For the small business, there are definitely times when the software they use is more than they will ever need and it can be more expensive than they would normally need.

Keeping up to date on password management, software security, and IT training is a must for all small businesses, just as it is for enterprises.
Just because your business hasn’t cracked the Fortune 500, doesn’t mean it doesn’t mean something to your employees and the people in your community that depend on it. Ensuring that your IT strategies are current and your strategies are sound is extremely important, especially today with so many small businesses being asked to do more with less.
