We believe in the concept of Defense-in-Depth for protecting users’ data. Syfer provides web filtering, botnet detection, and data encryption for data in transit. While we don’t discount the value of antivirus, we believe your devices remain unprotected against cyber threats when you rely solely on antivirus software. Syfer provides blanket security and privacy protection for everything in your network - your Nest thermostat and your iPad alike! Syfer allows you to be proactive about protecting your network, rather than reactive in cleaning your network once a problem presents itself. With that said, many devices leave the network from time to time (phones, laptops, tablets, etc.). In these cases, anti-virus remains helpful for protecting and removing malicious content.
