Security Services : Protected Access

What is it?

MWEB Protected Access protects MWEB ADSL Customers from bandwidth theft and account abuse by blocking unsolicited incoming connections to network ports commonly used by hackers.

It does not affect normal incoming and outgoing Internet traffic, so you can surf the Web, check your e-mail and download files without being aware of it.

It does not require you to download or install anything as it is set up on your local exchange.

Like Virus and Junk Mail filtering, MWEB Protected Access is enabled by default for all new customers. If you are an existing customer, we highly recommend you enable it.
