As our digital life expands, storing photos, browsing history, passwords, legal documents and personal emails to name a few, we are ever more aware of this private information getting stolen. We all need to protect ourselves and our data.
Firewalls installed within your home or office is becoming more and more important in preventing forced data entry through your ISP provided router or brute force attacks not only on our networks and computers but all of our technology within our house. (Google Home, Alexa, Video doorbells like Nest, Apple Speaker, Nest thermostats, Arlo Cameras and many more.)
Even if you already have a Firewall device installed optimizing it and making sure you have the latest firmware can help secure your personal data, closing unused ports and get the best protection from it. There are a lot of options and at Newburyport IT we can help guide you to a safer home and office.
