My Digital Shield (MDS), which provides security-as-a-service (SECaaS) solutions to small businesses, has secured $500,000 in funding, led by a group of private investors.
MDS says its cloud-based security technology is designed to eliminate the serious risks posed by hackers, cyber ransomers, and other dark Internet forces looking to bring down networks and steal precious and critical data.
The company’s channel program helps VARs, solution providers and MSPs strengthen their security offerings and expand their sales network for growth and profitability.
“This investment will allow us to expand MDS’ security offerings, build out our team, establish more reseller relationships, and grow our sales efforts," said Andrew Bagrin, founder and chief executive officer of My Digital Shield. “Small businesses cannot afford in-house IT experts or the expensive Internet security solutions currently on the market and designed for the Global 2000. Our mission is to deliver much-needed protection against cyber threats and intrusion to business owners at an affordable and predictable price, helping them protect their brands and foster growth."
MDS’ security product requires no start-up fees or long-term commitment from its customers. The price starts at $69 per month.
