mdsGUARD is a comprehensive Healthcare IT Cloud Security package for outpatient healthcare organizations.
mdsGUARD includes antivirus, automatic patches, workstation monitoring and server monitoring – all customized for private ambulatory groups.
mdsGUARD works in conjunction with our Managed IT services for IT support and deployment. MDS deploys as many services as possible through the cloud (internet) in order to reduce the strain and maintenance required on your local IT infrastructure. mdsGUARD helps keep your data safe from external breaches of PHI and builds a strong foundation for your HIPAA compliance and security risk management strategy.
Our comprehensive cloud solution protects your network with cloud-based antivirus software, patch management, real-time workstation performance monitoring, and web protection, and server monitoring. This is all done remotely, over the internet, without the need for any of your staff to interface with an MDS technician. You can purchase any mdsGUARD services a-la-carte (even just a single workstation) or all mdsGUARD services to deploy to your entire enterprise.
mdsGUARD Protection and Security Package
MDS Antivirus gives you real-time protection against viruses, spyware and other malware without hogging system resources or slowing down PCs – even during scans and updates. When threats are uncovered, MDS can eliminate them immediately through the cloud. We can remove your old antivirus remotely, as well.
