11.24.14 Business Solutions | MSPs, Don't Risk Missing Opportunities: 4 Factors Driving Cloud Security
To all MSPs out there that are accustomed to managing on-premise security solutions, it's time to take note - your business is moving to the cloud, whether you like it or not. According to a Gartner report released last year, by 2016 the use of cloud computing will increase to become the bulk of new IT spend. In fact, Gartner refers to 2016 as a "defining year for the cloud." Infonetics Research backs that claim, stating cloud-based security service revenue will expand at a 10.8 percent compound annual growth rate through 2017, and projects the market to reach $9.2 billion.

When Dick Williams accepted the job as CEO of the Boulder security firm Webroot Inc. five years ago, he told the board he needed 90 days to decide whether he would commute from his home in San Francisco or move to Colorado.

It's an open door, and they're rotating in and out all the time. Here, you can get great people and they stay."
