DETECTING CYBER THREATS
Stop dangerous activity in its tracks
The Advanced Security system is constantly looking out for you and your network safety by monitoring the activity and traffic flow of connected devices. When a potential threat or attack is detected, it’s instantly blocked and you’ll receive a notification with tips on how to resolve the issue.
TYPES OF THREATS & ATTACKS
Here are the 5 risks to know
The technology behind Advanced Security monitors your network and helps protect you from several types of digital threats.
Unauthorized access attempts
If an unrecognized user tries to connect to a device on your home network, they’ll be blocked and recorded in your Threat History.
Suspicious site visit
The system may stop your device from visiting a site if it suspects it contains any form of malware, spyware or virus.
Suspicious device activity
Your device’s traffic patterns are monitored in real-time, so if something seems off, the system will block the activity to avoid data theft.
Targeted network attack
Any attempt to attack your network, or an outside source using your network in an attack, will be shut down on the spot.
IP reputation threats
When sources that have been previously flagged as dangerous make access attempts to your devices, they are automatically blocked.
