A key difference between consumer and business-to-business branding is the influence of selling channels, including sales reps, dealers and distributors. While many consumer products are also sold through a channel, the marketer generally reaches past the channel with branding messages, relegating the channel to the status of a local point of sale. By contrast, in many B-to-B markets, the local dealer or distributor really “owns” the end customer and can control access and communications to and from the customer.
Customers now expect the same level of service on social media from financial firms, insurance providers, and other regulated enterprises as they receive from technology and retail companies. But without the right compliance controls in place, your organization could violate customer privacy rules and other regulatory guidelines.

Without a standard and secure environment for social media, your organization remains vulnerable to malware, unauthorized or fraudulent accounts, and data leakage.
IT departments are usually the ones who get called in to clean up the mess. Why not take control of the situation now?

Not so long ago, if you asked a business executive, “what is the most irreplaceable part of your business?” they might have pointed at their building or their employees. The really forward-thinking execs may have chosen their customers. But the reality is that businesses have insurance to deal with the loss of a building; they can hire new employees; and they can acquire new customers.

As the number and variety of threats mushroom, an Ovum survey has found that security teams have become physically unable to respond in an appropriate way to the ones that actually matter, with 50% of respondents in India saying they deal with more than 50 alerts each day.

device, they have been lacking in some of the more
sophisticated security aspects that are commonplace in laptop
and distributed network deployments. Specifically lacking are
