My Digital Shield Announces Partnership With Barcodes, Inc.

Security-as-a-service provider’s cloud-based solution will be marketed to Barcodes’ customers across multiple industries, including manufacturing, retail, healthcare and government

My Digital Shield (MDS), a leading provider of Security-as-a-Service (SECaaS) for small businesses, recently announced its partnership with Barcodes, Inc., (“Barcodes”) a recognized leader in the delivery of Automated Identification and Data Capture (AIDC) solutions in North America. Under this agreement, Barcodes will promote and sell MDS’ security solution packages to current and prospective customers across various industries including manufacturing, retail, healthcare, government, education and libraries, logistics, hospitality, and utilities.

A leading provider of barcode, mobile computing, and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) solutions, Barcodes provides Point of Sale (POS) systems specifically designed for retail, restaurant, bar, grocery, salon, and iPad-based applications. According to an alert titled “Malware Targeting Point of Sale Systems” by US-CERT, a division of the Department of Homeland Security, criminals are continuing to use malware to attack POS systems which, when unprotected, can be a highly vulnerable target. The partnership with MDS will enable Barcodes to offer a complete line of cyber security protection for its POS and other computing solutions.

“Because security threats are continuing to grow and cyber criminals are finding new ways to access confidential data, My Digital Shield is the perfect solution for ensuring complete security protection for our customers,” said Todd Muscato, Head of Product Technologies, Barcodes, Inc. “With MDS’ affordable, subscription-based solution, our customers can focus on growing their businesses knowing that sensitive customer and credit card data are safe from hackers and handled in accordance with industry regulations.”

My Digital Shield’s easy-to-install, easy-to-configure solution delivers complete cyber security protection against outside intruders and viruses with just one 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 end users. Based on unified threat management (UTM) technology deployed by large enterprises and government agencies, the MDS Cloud provides affordable, customizable security protection for the individual demands of the small business.

“We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Barcodes and are certain that the exposure to their wide variety of customers will help raise awareness of cyber security among small businesses,” said Andrew Bagrin, CEO and founder of My Digital Shield. “Recent headlines have opened everyone’s eyes towards the growing importance of network security, particularly across POS systems. We are excited to introduce our unique cloud-based security solutions to Barcodes’ customers and propel MDS’ growth in the marketplace.”
