Are you a Spectrum subscriber? Just signed up for a Spectrum One offer? Got standalone internet to suit your cord-cutter lifestyle? The internet is one of the most significant inventions in human technological development. In terms of impact, the creation of the internet is on par with the discovery of fire and the invention of the automobile. However, the information superhighway known as the world wide web is not the safe space most of us assumed it was. Far from it, in fact.
Why Do You Need It Anyway?
The modern internet landscape is a scary one. Fake websites, phishing emails, scams, and spam links are everywhere. This makes it very hard for people to walk the line between healthy skepticism and digital paranoia. But without access to digital platforms and cloud systems, you may be limiting your ability to function at work, in school, or even in keeping up with current events. Without the internet, you wouldn’t be able to share the latest meme formats or play your favorite games either.
Therefore, it is obvious that living without internet access is a handicap and extremely inconvenient. So what’s the answer? To take some of a load of vigilance and skepticism off your shoulders, Spectrum offers a comprehensive Security Suite to all internet subscribers.
What Does It Do?
Like most of the subscriber’s services, the Spectrum Security Suite is a comprehensive protection system. Built for residential internet subscribers, the Security Suite comes free of cost with every internet plan. So you don’t have to pay extra to keep yourself safe on the internet. Moreover, unlike much third-party software, the suite regularly updates itself. That way, you don’t have to keep track of updates or schedule them for downloading and installing. And you don’t have to worry about any new malware threats like a virus or a Spybot infecting your network or devices due to outdated security software.
As long as you subscribe to the provider’s internet services, you will have access to the Security Suite. That includes the full range of useful internet protection and security functions. Subscribers like you can use it for:
- Network security.
- Antivirus functions.
- Malware protection.
- Regular scanning for malware infections.
- Firewall capabilities.
- Securing your home Wi-Fi network and devices.
- Blocking unsafe websites or suspicious emails.
- Scanning incoming emails for spam and other malware.
- Privacy protection and encryption.
What Are Some of The Security Suite’s Best Features?
The provider’s Security Suite comes equipped with all sorts of cutting-edge protection features. The software is designed to work with all types of residential internet consumers. It contains many of the same features you would find in a paid premium security application. Here is a list of crucial security features that you get along with your internet subscription:
Real-Time Antivirus and Malware Protection
The best feature the Security Suite offers is virus protection in real-time. Once activated, it keeps all devices on your home Wi-Fi network protected against virus threats at all times. It analyzes any programs you run online and identifies any viruses that may try to infect the devices running these programs. It offers uniform protection to desktop PCs, laptops, smartphones, tablets, and other wirelessly connected devices.
Firewall Protection and Configuration
The software also comes with strong firewall protection capability. A firewall prevents infected files and data packets from entering your network or devices. The security it offers supports both Mac and Windows devices.
Automated Removal and Quarantine
It is not just enough to detect incoming viruses. A good security application will also detect and remove them as needed. The Security Suite automatically scans for viruses and removes or quarantines them when detected. As a result, you don’t have to keep scanning specific folders, files, or devices.
Real-Time Browser Protection
With the Security Suite, you also receive protection when you access the internet on a browser. The browser protection feature determines the safety of any website you visit. Using a grading system can rank websites with low or poor security as well as blacklisting harmful websites.
Finally, spyware is every internet user’s worst nightmare. Imagine a bit of malware inhabiting your devices and networks. But instead of disrupting work, it simply spies on every interaction on the network, not just the devices. The risk of losing privacy, as well as sensitive confidential information to spyware, is very real. However, the Spectrum Security Suite has features configured specifically to detect and remove spyware as well, not just viruses or trojans.
