When it comes to computer and network security, the concerns will never go away, which is why it’s so important to have your company protected from all the threats that exist out there in cyberspace. My Digital Shield is a security software solution geared towards giving smaller and mid-sized companies the peace of mind they need to focus on their business without a huge IT expense. The difference with My Digital Shield is that it is an entirely cloud-based system, which means you won’t have to worry about an on-premise solution using up a lot your processing power.
By intercepting security threats while they’re still incoming from the cloud, it prevents them from ever getting into your internal network. It can protect your system from malware, intrusions, and viruses. As soon as any suspicious activity is detected, company management will be immediately notified. This kind of real-time visibility into security threats is essential in the 21st century business environment. Because it is cloud-based it is both multi-platform in terms of operating systems and multi-device as well.

In general, many users note that the system is incredibly easy to use.
Other users note that they appreciate how the system works on all kinds of devices that don’t otherwise have their own security or anti-virus protection, such as printers, NAS units, and other devices.
