Why DIY cybersecurity simply doesn’t cut the mustard these days

We’ve all read the stats about the rise of cybercrime, and the volume and breadth of threats. And yes, it’s truly frightening — especially as the rush to enable remote workforces has left many businesses even more vulnerable to attack.

With 43% of all cyberattacks targeting SMEs unable to afford a dedicated 24/7 security team, the pressure is on to find a better way to secure and protect. And enterprises are far from safe either, with even huge, cyber-aware giants like LinkedIn and Facebook falling prey to hackers.

A DIY approach to protecting your business from cybercrime requires investing in viable mitigation strategies, attracting (and affording) skilled cybersecurity professionals, and using the right toolsets. Failing to safeguard your entire environment — from web APIs to legacy solutions, to endpoint devices — can result in your data being held to ransom, payments diverted to outside accounts, critical applications malfunctioning or stopping altogether, sensitive information exposed, identities stolen and sold, and more.

Fusion5’s always-on Security Centre will help lighten the load with a range of services that deliver peace of mind, and value for money. We’ll help you to identify and address the risks, reduce your cybersecurity costs, and provide visibility of your biggest vulnerabilities. Now that’s a plan!

Straightforward monthly pricing*

*excluding tax *NZD

We offer a set monthly price MDR service based on your user numbers. Prices are inclusive of all of the MDR services detailed above.    

  • Small business
    $88 per user/per month for the first 80 users
  • Medium business
    As for small businesses; but only $40 per additional user per month between 81 to 160 users
  • Large business
    As for medium businesses; but only $20 per additional user per month between 161 to 300 users

For example, if you had 120 employees the pricing would be as follows:

• First 80 employees = $88 per user per month
• Additional 40 employees (81-120) = $40 per user per month

Total cost per/month → (88x40) + (40x40) = $8,640

For 300+ users (enterprise level), more details, or to discuss a customised solution,
