My Digital Shield Launches Shield Test Security Assessment Tool for SMBs

Security-as-a-service provider offers a free online-based assessment and ranking tool to help SMBs assess their cybersecurity protection.

My Digital Shield, a provider of security-as-a-service (SECaaS) for small businesses, has launched Shield Test, an online-based security assessment tool to helps small businesses measure their vulnerability to cyber threats. In a 30-second scan, Shield Test assesses a network’s susceptibility to infection by malware or viruses and ranks the existing levels of defense against potential attacks and intrusion.

Shield Test evaluates an entire network to determine if there are any weaknesses in the current configuration that can create vulnerabilities and allow cyber hackers access to sensitive company and customer data. Once the test is complete, Shield Test provides a report of the criteria the system passed and suggestions for improvement, along with recommended next actions.

Shield Test scans an end user’s network, evaluating the following seven criteria of cybersecurity:

  • Open Ports Test – identifies any ports that are left open.
  • DDOS Defense Test – mimics a Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) assault to check if a defense is triggered.
  • Malware/Virus Test – checks to make sure the system detects and blocks an attempted malware/virus download.
  • Client-side Attack – tests for the presence of a properly configured Intrusion Prevention System (IPS).
  • Server-side Attack – tests for an active IPS on the network, properly configured to protect servers.
  • Credit Card Theft Test – attempts to upload credit card numbers from the system to the Internet to test for theft vulnerability and the presence of a DLP system.
  • Bandwidth Test – determines how fast the network Internet connection is, and conducts a TCP bandwidth test instead of a UDP test to show true user experience versus just pipe size.

Shield Test is now available to all businesses at
