Comparing the Security of Satellite Internet with Other Connections
There are plenty of ways to connect to the internet these days, such as:
- Via the mobile telephone network.
- Through WiFi hotspots.
- With a fixed-line connection.
With the right sort of professional surveillance equipment, it is feasible for someone to be able to grab the data that is sent to and from a mobile communications mast and a mobile device. Equally, WiFi hotspots that you can log onto for free will often collect data about you and your device. They're often seen as one of the least secure ways of connecting to the internet.
On the other hand, a fixed-line connection with a router is usually very secure, especially if it has a built-in firewall – a way of preventing unauthorised devices from remotely accessing your network. As long as you change the router's password from its default one, this is a secure system, which means your data is encrypted – scrambled up – when it is sent into the public domain of the internet. Only when the intended recipient of your data gets it will it be decrypted so that it can be understood.
Reassuringly, the satellite internet services on offer from Konnect are just as secure as fixed-line ones. Only devices with the password to your satellite router will be able to use it. What's more, you'll be safeguarded by the top-level encryption that you need these days to keep cybercriminals at bay!
