Jersey City, New Jersey – (The Hosting News) – October 13, 2008 – Internet website security provider, Comodo, In the spirit of National Cyber Security Awareness Month, reminds concerned Wi-Fi users that its TrustConnect service allows laptop owners to enable individual network style security.
Comodo reporst that according to a recent study from the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration, most wireless connections at hotels are still unsecure. Wi-Fi users at hotels are at risk of man-in-the-middle attacks that can mislead patrons into giving out sensitive information. In unsecured networks, users risk hacker tampering with unencrypted emails and web exchanges.
TrustConnect, which works on Windows, Mac and even Linux OSes, uses an SSL certificate to create a Virtual Private Network (VPN). This VPN allows TrustConnect to essentially put a shield around the user’s connection to the Internet, preventing hackers from accessing the protected system while on a public wireless connection. This protection extends no matter what network users are logged onto, be it in a hotel, on the road, or anywhere else.
With a 7-day free trial and affordable monthly and annual rates, TrustConnect from Comodo is one of the most secure, reliable services available to assure users that they are protected, no matter what network they are connected to. Hotels may have to catch up on their network security, but laptop owners don’t have to wait for them.
