The slew of recent big name security breaches has caused many retailers to pull back when it comes to their Internet connectivity. Giant retailers like Walmart that once had multiple points of access in each of their storefronts have yanked the plug, going so far as to kick third parties right off their networks.
No wired connection can deliver 100% uptime so the question isn’t whether your business will lose connectivity to the Internet the question is how to protect enterprises from connection loss and disruption when it does happen. When cable, fiber, or DSL Internet service experiences a service disruption (in some areas this happens several times a month) the enterprise is exposed to risks of lost revenue, productivity, and customer experience issues. Upgrading to a more robust wired connection such as T1 line is an option that comes with a higher monthly cost.
