Hackers aren’t picky. They’re just looking for the path of least resistance—and video game consoles provide the sweet spot they need to access sensitive information. While you’re in the dining room doing your banking on the laptop, a hacker is skimming your account information through your son or daughter’s gaming console.

And short of standing over your kid’s shoulder the entire time he or she is gaming, it’s impossible to monitor the content they’re viewing, or set filters to limit pictures, videos and other information you don’t want them to have access to.

Home networks need better security, and the little black box modem you bought at the store isn’t going to get you there.

Proper Access can install a hack-proof Wi-Fi system that includes software that prevents an intrusion through your child’s gaming system, stopping and flagging any sort of internet traffic that attempts to bring a cyber threat to your network. We’ll also add software that monitors what’s flowing in and out of your home network.

And to keep your gamer from gaining access to harmful information online, we can set content filters at the network level, so they can keep playing and you have peace of mind.

We take commercial-grade networking components and build the most secure network available, installed at non-commercial prices. Give us a call to access your home’s network defense system.
