Recommendations

You may not have a dedicated IT person in your team, but you should know that you will, at some point, have to deal with malware – if your company operates with financial transactions, it's very likely that your business will come under cybercriminal fire sooner or later. To effectively counter this threat, install a multi-layered security solution that fends off malware, protects your valuable data from ransomware, and allows for safe banking.

It seems that your region is ahead of many others in terms of virtual IT infrastructure, because incidents with virtual infrastructure top the list of threats encountered by SMEs here, with data leaks and the inappropriate use of IT by employees coming second. The first threat can be efficiently mitigated with a specialized security solution for virtualization, that doesn't hinder performance. The second threat requires cyber awareness training.
