Business and Home users both make use of Broadband access to the Internet, and both are exposed to a substantial increase in risk because of it.
With Dial-up access to the Internet, your computer is assigned a unique address, typically a different one every time you connect. Only when you are
connected are you directly exposed to risks from the Internet. Because your system usually receives a new address each time you connect to the Internet, it is difficult for
someone to hack into your system, or repeatedly access your system.
When you use a Broadband access solution, your connection to the Internet is an "Always on" type of connection, which means you typically have either
a "Permanent" address, or the same one for several weeks to months at a time. This increases your security risks, as your computer is always exposed to threat, and available
for someone to hack into your system when ever your system is powered on.
To minimize or eliminate these risks, you need a comprehensive solution, that not only guards you against attacks when you are online, but also when you aren't.
