Is my data secure?
September 10, 2010
The Internet itself is inherently insecure. For this reason, Simply Bits wireless service includes firewall services with every connection. Unless you specifically request, we provide a firewall for every customer connection to reduce the likelihood of an outside party getting unfettered access to your machine. Note that the firewall service does not keep you from getting viruses or malware and it does not in any way guarantee your Internet safety. Our firewall service merely puts another hurdle in the way of bad guys when compared to services from other broadband providers. If you require secure access to your data at work, Simply Bits can recommend local IT professionals who can assist you. Simply Bits business Internet service can provide secure VPN (virtual private networking) access to your business.
