Enterprise / Business

In the enterprise and business world, getting the “job done” is important.

Critical to business and enterprise operations, a secure and resilient Internet is key to an organization’s financial stability and an ever growing online economy.

A 2010 Forrester Research study projected by 2014 the US online economy would be estimated at $249 billion US dollars (over €190 billion euros) while in the EU online economy would be reaching €114 billion euros (over $149 billion USD).

While online economies are important to the UK and the US, online economies and a country’s online presence is equally important for economic development and attracting business development.
