Why Security-as-a-Service Is Your Best Defense Against the Seedy Underbelly of Cybercrime

Posted September 24, 2015by Kristi Trimmer

If you have been watching the news lately, you know that cyber attacks are being launched at an alarming frequency in this day and age. Are you protecting your clients' data security by offering a Security-as-a-Service (SECaaS) solution?


IT Threats Come in All Shapes and Sizes

Malware and cyber hacks are constantly changing in form, and you might never know how these threats are going to manifest themselves. With the rising popularity of drones, hackers can even steal information from right outside your office window. It's not just small-to-medium-sized businesses that are the targets of these schemes, however. Both Wall Street and the Pentagon, the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense, were recently attacked by Russia and the Ukraine. The Internet of Things adds a whole new layer to the cybersecurity threat landscape. In fact, two researchers proved car manufacturers like Chrysler could be vulnerable to attack, after obtaining access to the car and customer data.

How You Can Fight Cybercrime When on a Budget

At My Digital Signal (MDS), we help small business owners by searching the web every week to deliver news on the latest malware and cyber attacks on our blog. Not only do we want to help educate and inform our clients, but we strive to provide the best cloud-based security solutions for small businesses. When we were founded in 2013, we made it a priority to offer affordable, yet easy-to-install SECaaS that was based on an industry-leading Unified Threat Management (UTM) system. Basically, we offer our clients protection against cyber threats at an affordable price that won't break the small business bank.

We help a variety of small businesses either directly or by equipping a nationwide client base of Managed Service Providers (MSPs) with our SECaaS offering. We tend to have a lot of clients that own bars, restaurants, and retail locations that have many daily transactions. MDS also serves those in professional industries like medical, law, accountancy, and hospitality that need to ensure their own clients and patients that their data is safe and secure. Our aim is to take that cybersecurity stress off of our clients' shoulders so that they can go back to doing what they do best - running their businesses and helping their respective clients and customers.

Come by and see us at Navigate 2015 in Booth #18. We would love to talk to you about your own business security weaknesses and discover if we can help better protect you and your data.

If you can't make it to the conference, hit us up on Facebook, Twitter, or on LinkedIn. Would you prefer a conversation over the phone? Call us today at 888.584.9920. We'll also respond to any email you send our way!

MDS strives to be there for you in any way that you need. We can't wait to connect with you at Navigate 2015!
