I am a solo guy - a consultant working out of my home. My IT needs are Office 365 and my Surface Pro - not much else. A previous employer allowed me to use his IT provider to house my email and provide security protection. It is time to move away from the employer and it doesn't seem necessary to pay an IT firm for such limited needs, particularly with so many robust security tools available to me?
