Cox offers our high-speed Internet customers multiple layers of protection.
From a network perspective, Cox uses DOCSIS (Data Over Cable Service
Interface Specification) compliant cable modems and equipment which encrypts
our customers’ data as it flows through the network. With Baseline
Privacy Interface (BPI), Cox controls distribution of encryption keys to its
customers’ cable modems from its master telecommunications center
and hub sites. Policing and filtering functions are used to reduce risks
from attacks targeted at a customer’s PC.
Cox also offers a free software security suite to every Cox High Speed
Internet customer. This comprehensive security suite offers a personal
firewall, anti-spyware, anti-virus, pop-up blocker, spam-blocker and
parental controls. Activating these features give you state-of-the-art
protection against a variety of online threats.
