Do I Really Need to Worry About This Cyber Security Stuff?
Hacking attempts, email spoofing and ransomware attacks have increased exponentially. While attacks on large companies tend to make the news, small organizations are attacked regularly.
Particularly with more employees working remotely, hackers have seized on “Work From Home” as an opportunity to attack through vulnerable home and coffee shop networks.
In this accelerating threat landscape, we strongly recommend that all our customers take advantage of our security expertise and implement our recommendations to defend against attacks that can compromise your data or your customers data and shut your business down for days or even permanently,
How Does Todyl Compare with a Traditional Hardware Firewall
Todyl can be much more affordable for small businesses than a hardware firewall. With Todyl, you don’t have to invest a large sum upfront as you would with a hardware firewall. It’s provides the same protection as a hardware firewall, but without the expense of replacing that hardware or paying annual licensing fees.
Does Todyl Work on All Devices?
Yes. Todyl works with Windows and Mac workstations and servers. There are also Todyl apps for iPhone and Android devices.
Can We Use Todyl to Limit Where Users Can Connect From?
Yes. With Todyl, we can set up IP restrictions to limit cloud access only to users on the Todyl VPN, making your logins even more secure.
Can a User Disable Todyl?
Todyl can be configured so that users can easily disable it when they are not working (although most leave it on all the time to take full advantage of its security and privacy benefits).
Can Todyl Help with Auditing and Compliance (GRC)?

We have a Server and a Firewall already. Can We Still Use Todyl?
Yes. You can use Todyl to securely connect your remote workers to your office server, whether you have an enterprise-class firewall or not.
This Sounds Amazing! So What Doesn't Todyl Do?
Todyl isn’t a password manager. It doesn’t include antivirus, although it does include malware proxy scanning using 20 different online malware scanners to help protect your computers and your data from threats. It is not an RMM (Remote Monitoring and Management) tool, so it doesn’t perform patching or device health monitoring. It’s not cyber security insurance.
