Experienced and skillful resources come at a high price and it’s not possible for small and mid-sized enterprises to inordinately spend on them. Which is why, cloud and cybersecurity staff augmentation makes complete sense. You may also hire an offshore cloud services provider or an offshore cybersecurity service provider. The premise is that an in-house team is seriously exorbitant.
