Shaw ‘Smart’ Security– You Get What You Pay For
Shaw Smart Security is a service provided by the networking giant Cisco. The Cisco MX router/firewall device is excellent at what it does. Unfortunately, it is only a small cog in protecting your small and medium business network, vital financial data and company reputation.
Most viruses and ransomware infections occur by user error, either by email or USB file transfers. Once in the network the virus replicates and kills your whole business.
Why is Shaw Smart Security useless in this scenario?
The Cisco MX does NOT scan emails only web content and cannot protect you against USB memory sticks already in the network. Shaw Smart Security may only cost you $30, but you would be better off getting a Tim Hortons card. Full security for your vital business information does not cost $30, it costs between $50 and $70 per device in your network if done correctly. Think this is costly? We have a Saskatoon client which saved $580 by moving to Shaw Smart Security, it cost them $140,000 to recover their business when it was hit with ransomware.
