Shaw Business launches cyberattack protection service

Oct. 26, 2020
For only $6 per month, Cyber Protect from Shaw Business provides enhanced device protection and Domain Name System (DNS) security against malicious cyberattacks, malware and viruses.

Canada's Shaw Communications Inc. on Oct. 22 announced the launch of its Cyber Protect for Shaw Business customers, a new cybersecurity service for businesses looking to enable increased security measures across their network to protect their employees and valuable data.

Cyberattacks are becoming more frequent and increasingly sophisticated. With the amount of sensitive and confidential information that businesses share and store online, a single cyberattack has the potential to be absolutely crippling,” comments Katherine Emberly, President, Business, Shaw Communications.

She adds, “By acting as a key line of defense against cybercriminals, Cyber Protect from Shaw Business will help alleviate the uncertainty and worry many customers feel when it comes to network security, and allow them to focus on growing their business.” 

Available as a $6 per month add-on feature for the operator's existing small and medium business internet and SmartWiFi customers, the Cyber Protect service allows business owners to create a crucial line of defense against potentially disastrous security threats including malware, ransomware, phishing scams and botnet attacks.

Cyber Protect from Shaw Business consists of two key products: Cisco Umbrella Easy Protect and McAfee Multi Access: 

  • Cisco Umbrella Easy Protect transparently verifies the safety of internet traffic passing through the customer’s modem by blocking Domain Name System (DNS) requests to malicious destinations before a connection is established. A fully cloud-based software solution, Cisco Umbrella Easy Protect requires no hardware deployment or site visit to implement.
  • McAfee Multi Access provides Windows- and Mac OS-based laptops as well as iOS and Android smartphones and tablets with premium safe browsing and anti-virus protection and can be installed on up to 10 unique devices per customer account.
