What exactly is it?
Northern Lights Fiber is committed to providing the safest browsing and connectivity possible. We achieve this through our ProtectIQ software in the Northern Wifi App. ProtectIQ is a network-level security service which protects ALL devices connected to your Wi-Fi. If it’s connected, it’s protected!
What does ProtectIQ do to keep my home network safe?
- Proactively monitors your home’s incoming traffic and automatically blocks anything suspicious.
- Blocks attempted visits to known harmful websites, presenting users with a browser message indicating that the website is not available.
- Provide an active security monitoring service that uses a large and constantly growing database of threats (database is updated weekly).
- Uses IPS to monitor, notify, and prevent activity like hacking. It will stop a device from trying to gain access to technology like Wi-Fi connected doorbells or baby monitors, virtual meetings, and streams.
- Actively terminates data transfers before a malicious payload is delivered to any network device.
- Notifies users whenever security is triggered, with details about the device that was attacked, where the attack came from, and when the attack occurred.
