Comments: We've been using this product for 6 months now and I must say, I'm really surprised. We used to always get some kind of virus or files encrypted and computers stopped working. Ever since we had this put in, all of that nonsense went away. I didn't even think it was possible to get rid of that headache. Very impressive!

Pros: The setup was easy and worked with my existing office network. Web portal for configuring your security settings was very simple to follow and changes were installed in seconds.

Pros: MDS is providing security through complete internet traffic scanning. This will go a long way to securing devices for which AV software isn't available, such as printers, NAS units, and other IoT appliances.

Cons: The user interface is pretty industrial, and the reports seem over simplified.

Recommendations to other buyers: There is no other product like this currently available.

Pros: It's very simple. I just have to pick a few options to secure my business. Also, Shield Test makes it very simple to understand security and how I am being protected.

Cons: The only thing missing for my needs is tunnel VPN support, but I hear that is coming soon.

Recommendations to other buyers: Just try it. There's no real commitment, and it's very simple to install at a much cheaper rate than I was paying with AT&T.

Comments: I have been self employed for 33 years. I deal with State and Federal agencies every day, all day. I was having problems with continuous popups, to the point of interference with my entire working day. My email was also hacked which caused me much worry. I thought I was protected by having the "popular" antivirus software on my computer. I found out real quick, when I contacted them for their support and help, that it didn't cover the so called viruses my computer had been hit with. I was virtually put OUT OF BUSINESS. I was really stressed. It was 4th quarter and year end reporting time for me. Then, through a friend, I found out about My Digital Shield. Since the installation of My Digital Shield I now have peace of mind and no worries that my information can be compromised. I am thrilled at the affordability and performance of the product. Since the installation I'm no longer bothered by popups, ads, or threats and can finish my daily tasks in half the time it was taking me before. I would and have highly recommended this product to many of my customers and will continue to do so. When you're self employed you don't need the worries of anything like what happened to me before My Digital Shield came along. I feel confident this product has saved me much worry, stress, and money. I will continue to subscribe to it as long as I'm around. Also, and very importantly, My Digital Shield not only protects my business, it protects my entire family and their personal devices throughout my entire home.

Comprehensive network security that is simple to use.

Pros: My Digital Shield offers high end security at a reasonable price. Setup was easy and, most importantly, was PCI compliant.

Cons: No cons to speak off. There are not many products on the market that compete in this price range.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you have more than 5-6 AV licenses, then this will save you money as well as offer infinitely more protection.

What a great product. I wish I found this before.

Pros: It is extremely simple; it works very well. There's no annoying stuff like with the desktop antivirus I had before. It's very fast, too. Usually, security means slow and problems, but we haven't had any slowness or problems.

Cons: They don't market very well. I didn't find out about them until recently.

Recommendations to other buyers: Shieldtest.com looks like a good test to see how good the security is. You should check to make sure it does a good job at security and that it doesn't slow everything down.

Great protection, great price!

Comments: I was looking for a solution for my home business. Its just me but I knew I needed something more protective than software downloaded on my laptop. I heard about My Digital Shield from my cousin's neighbor who runs an IT business in Cleveland. The price was super affordable and I can set content levels and be in complete control. They also provide free guest wifi which I love. I am very impressed with the quality of internet and protection I receive.
