Firewall-as-a-Service (FWaaS) provider MyDigitalShield said this week that it has rebranded the company OmniNet. Founded in 2013, MyDigitalShield provides cloud-based, enterprise-level security technology to small businesses.
“We’ve changed our name from MyDigitalShield to OmniNet to accurately reflect the evolution of our platform, which now builds SD-WAN [software defined-wide area network] into ElasticUTM [unified threat management] and Firewall-as-a-Service—we now offer not just a ‘shield’ but an omni-present network architecture that enhances all other technologies and applications,” said Andrew Bagrin, founder and CEO of OmniNet. “Although we have a new name, we continue to focus on the same goal – to be the secure networking foundation for all other services offered by partners.”
MDS served a previously underserviced market, equipping it with an affordable security solution to protect against costly data breaches, hackers, cyber ransoms, viruses and more. Under Bagrin’s leadership, MDS achieved rapid growth, including the expansion of its partner program to thousands of active partners while furthering its position in the market as a leading cybersecurity solutions provider to the enterprise. Today, the industry reach of MDS—now OmniNet—includes retail, restaurants, healthcare, hospitality and professional services.
OmniNet’s customizable ElasticUTM is based on industry-leading threat intelligence and inspection technologies and delivers continual protection to both small and mid-sized businesses and large enterprises from cyber threats and intrusion at an affordable price. With no bandwidth pollution, the FWaaS delivery model ensures that the very latest virus definitions and threat updates are in use for continual threat assessment. It also greatly simplifies security deployment and management and reduces costs by eliminating on-premise hardware.
OmniNet offers its security solution through its thousands of channel partners, which include value-added resellers (VARs), independent agent/brokers, solution providers and managed service providers (MSPs). “As security continues to be a growing priority for businesses of all sizes, and especially smaller scale organizations, our partner program offers channel partners and resellers the opportunity to see high-volume and high-margin sales with our plug-and-play platform,” said Bagrin.
