Wilmington, Del. (PRWEB) December 02, 2014
My Digital Shield (MDS), a leading provider of Security-as-a-Service (SECaaS) for small businesses, today announced its partnership with SkyWire, a nationwide hospitality solutions provider. Under this agreement, SkyWire will market MDS’ cloud-based security solution to its current and prospective customers across various industries, including banking, hospitality, restaurant, retail, religious, entertainment, education, and sports.
According to the National Cyber Security Alliance, one in five small businesses falls victim to cyber crime each year, and of those, 60 percent go out of business within six months as a result of the accompanying financial damages. Whenever a business utilizes a network of computers, deploys point of sale (POS) devices, or accepts credit cards and handles private customer information, there exists the threat of hackers gaining access to sensitive data. The newly formed partnership between MDS and SkyWire provides SkyWire’s customers with complete cyber security protection against outside intrusions, data breaches, and viruses.
“Because attacks can be launched at multiple levels within a network, each level needs to be safeguarded from breaches - starting at the most vulnerable - the Internet connection itself,” said Jeremy Higgins, executive director of product management, SkyWire. “My Digital Shield is a perfect partner for us because its affordable, subscription-based security solution serves as the line of defense our customers need to protect their sensitive data and reputation.”
MDS’ complete, easy-to-install and easy-to-configure solution safeguards against costly data breaches, outside intrusions and viruses with the MDS Cloud, where incoming and outgoing traffic is filtered off-premise. Users connect to the MDS Cloud through a simple piece of equipment called MDS Cloud Link, which plugs into an Internet connection. Data is funneled up to the secure cloud, where it is measured, analyzed for threats, and then made available again to users. Based on industry-leading unified threat management (UTM) technology deployed by large enterprises and government agencies, the MDS Cloud provides comprehensive and customizable security protection for the specific demands of small businesses.
“We’re excited about the opportunity to introduce our powerful security solution to SkyWire’s network of customers across multiple industries,” said Andrew Bagrin, CEO and founder of My Digital Shield. “Our security solution is uniquely designed for small businesses and is tailored to the needs of each customer. We are confident that we can provide an added layer of security that will protect SkyWire’s customers’ businesses and continue to further our mission of delivering Fortune 500 security for the small business.”
