It’s Time to Honor Small Businesses!
For more than 50 years, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has hosted National Small Business Week, a celebration of our nation’s entrepreneurs and innovators who drive the economy through commerce and job creation. From May 5th-11th, 2019, the SBA and community will honor the contributions of small business leaders through awards and recognition, a virtual conference, and helpful resources that assist small business owners in addressing operational challenges.
Small business are often beloved fixtures within our community – a place where, as we like to say here in Boston, “where everyone knows your name,” and where you don’t feel like a number. Small business can range from a single employee to hundreds and we’re proud to work alongside many of these companies. As we’ve gotten to know their needs better from an identity security perspective, we’ve learned that they face so many of the same challenges and threats that large enterprises must also handle.
Did you know that 47 percent of small businesses experienced at least one cyberattack last year?
At EZShield, we decided to do something about this, and in addition to the enterprises, partners, and consumers we serve, we are now also committed to protecting Small and Medium-sized businesses (SMBs). We provide resources and tools to safeguard companies of all sizes, their families, their employees, and their customers from identity theft and fraud.
I’d like to personally invite you to watch an on-demand replay of our SMB-focused webinar, and encourage anyone who partners with, owns, works for, or is interested in small business, to review our latest resources below.

Making Cyber and Identity Threat Protection Affordable, Yet Enterprise-Class for SMBs
With the rise of cybercrime exposing confidential business, employee, and customer data from Small and Medium-Sized Businesses (SMBs), EZShield consulted with our clients and partners, in addition to conducting our own research, to determine how we could best protect the financial wellness of smaller organizations. It’s why we’ve launched our Small Business Suite, an affordable, revolutionary combination of mobile threat defense and identity theft protection capabilities that empower SMBs to keep sensitive information safe and employees protected.
