ARK Solvers Identifies Top IT Security Threats Facing SMB Clients in 2016

As larger organizations double down on IT security after a punishing year in 2015, hackers are increasingly looking for smaller, softer targets to attack and profit from, ARK Solvers reports.

ARK Solvers, one of Florida’s leading information technology specialists, highlighted the top IT security challenges facing small and medium companies in 2016. In a new article at, ARK Solvers security experts point out the IT security threats that SMB organizations need to be most aware of in the new year and how best to face them down. As the provider of consulting, support, and Managed IT Services Miami companies rely upon and trust more than any other, ARK Solvers regularly helps clients overcome the challenges inherent in today’s often-hostile IT security environment.

“2015 was a year when the importance of effective IT security really became clear to the public,” ARK Solvers President Reginald Andre said, “From the life-changing Ashley Madison breach to an incredibly damaging attack on the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, 2015 saw one national headline after another about how dangerous determined hackers can be. As our new report points out, 2016 is likely to be a year when smaller companies and organizations will need to step up their own vigilance and the effectiveness of their security arrangements, as they are by no means immune to the attention of digital criminals.”

The total cost of the damage done by IT breaches in an average year can be hard to measure, given how reticent many groups are to admit falling victim to attacks. What can be reported with certainty is that the toll has climbed rapidly and consistently in modern times, with cyber-criminals constantly looking for new ways to derive money from their illicit activities, as with the introduction of cryptographic “ransomware” in recent years.

Up until this point, many small and medium businesses have benefited from falling under the radar, with essentially unsatisfactory IT security systems going unchallenged by criminals who pursued bigger fish. As the new ARK Solvers report points out, though, hackers are increasingly focusing in on these soft SMB targets and doing plenty of damage in the process.

As a provider of services and IT Consulting Miami area companies consistently use to shore up their own information technology arrangements of all kinds, ARK Solvers regularly experiences the latest security developments first hand. The company’s new report on the IT security environment for small and medium businesses in 2016 is available now at its website and identifies a number of significant trends. Visitors to the site can also sign up for free, comprehensive IT assessments with experienced ARK Solvers consultants.
