Shield Networks Revolutionizing Canadian MSP Space with New Internet Guardian Service Offering

Winnipeg IT Security Experts Making Life Easier for Canadian IT Managed Service Providers

The team of IT security experts from Shield Networks are passionate about helping Managed Technology Service Providers (MSPs) work smarter, not harder and they’ve decided to lead the charge. In 2017, Shield is striving to make the lives of MSP’s easier by taking the management of SonicWALL firewalls off their plate. The entire Shield Networks team is thrilled to announce Internet Guardian – the Canadian IT security solution, built exclusively for Canadian managed service providers.

For many years, the team at Shield Networks were themselves Managed IT Service Provider for businesses across a variety of industries. Thanks to this experience and expertise, their team knows just how demanding it is to balance the varying technology needs of a plethora of different clients. Shield Networks partnered with SonicWALL and are huge proponents of the SonicWALL security solutions. The Shield team has long been optimizing and leveraging the best SonicWALL security solutions for their own clients. Balancing the daily needs of clients while also ensuring security resources are continually and thoroughly leveraged can often seem impossible.  So, Shield is leading the charge with a way to help lighten the load of IT MSPs nationwide!

IT Security In Canada

The Shield Internet Guardian allows MSP’s to outsource the monitoring, alerting, configuration and remediation of their client’s SonicWALL technology. The Shield Internet Guardian makes things easier for MSP’s by providing:

  • Reduced Cost & Seamless Deployment – Outsourcing firewall management alleviates the costs required to train and retain SonicWALL employees. Furthermore, the Internet Guardian can be implemented quickly and easily on modern SonicWALL firewall appliances and tailored to the needs of the MSP partner’s clients.
  • Optimization & Tech Friendly Ease of Use – Internet Guardian is specifically designed to leverage all the security and productivity tools SonicWALL offers. This optimization, in combination with user-friendly automation mechanisms takes the guess work out of initial setup, centralized security monitoring, alerting and remediation.
  • Rapid Detection & Complete Confidence – Internet Guardian’s thorough monitoring system detects problems immediately and utilizes a high-end alert system to ensure proactive response, either by the MSP (Basic plan) or by Shield technicians (Elite plan). This proactive approach and the experience and expertise held by the Shield team can offer peace of mind to any overwhelmed MSP.

The best part about the Internet Guardian solution is the fact that MSP’s can outsource in a way which specifically supports their needs. The SonicWALL platform allows for updates and configurations to be applied to a variety of appliances at once or one at a time. Finally, MSPs get the choice to manage and secure their own clients using the GMS platform (Basic plan) or outsource monitoring and management completely to Shield (Elite plan). Regardless of the MSPs approach to outsourcing, Shield’s Internet Guardian truly takes the stress and guesswork out of SonicWALL optimization.

The Shield Internet Guardian doesn’t officially launch until 2017, but if you’d like to connect your business-minded audience with more information on how it can augment your MSP’s current service offering, please reach out to CMO Greg Kroeker for more information.
