YOUR RIGHT TO ONLINE PRIVACY

From the moment you connect to the Internet, you are subject to multiple online privacy challenges. Many of these personal security violations cannot be detected or identified easily by average Internet users. Feeling the pressure from the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America), and in compliance with the DMCA (The Digital Millennium Copyright Act), Internet service providers and hosting companies, large and small, are taking steps to protect themselves against mounting legal challenges and simultaneously compromising your interests. They "police" their networks and rented customer servers by gathering detailed access and usage data. As a direct result of these and other actions, user expectations of online privacy have been dramatically reshaped and reduced.



COMMON
PRIVACY THREATS

  • Consumer profiling
  • Identity theft & fraud
  • Online user tracking
  • Internet monitoring
  • Data mining & sharing
  • Unrestrained sensitive data access by a third-party hosting vendors
  • Web access censorship

There are many dangers to online privacy. These privacy threats come in many different shapes and sizes. A cyber thief does not have to be a web security expert to compromise your computer or to steal your sensitive data. Some novice Internet users with limited Internet knowledge may willingly subject themselves to privacy leaks. These may come, for example, in the form of web site fraud, in which a "flight-by-night" web service offers a free product, product survey scam, or even just web access through an "open public anonymous web proxy" honeypot that can be used to gather your email addresses, account usernames, credit card numbers, etc.

One thing privacy threats have in common is that they transpire quietly and without any visible warnings. Somebody may be using your identity online to commit unlawful acts and you may not even know that it is happening.

Abandoned without any real resources to combat online privacy problems, an Internet user's only ammunition is a reliable technology solution to safeguard their privacy. The ADVANCED MEGAPROXY® WEB SSL VPN SERVICE encrypts the traffic from a user's browser to the Megaproxy® secure system. In doing so, it makes the user's Internet connection virtually immune to network based privacy leaks like data mining appliances (aka "honeypots"), consumer profiling, online monitoring, and eavesdropping.

A FALSE SENSE OF WEB SECURITY

Even with the spread of web-based browser exploits, which explore browser specific vulnerabilities in order to steal sensitive user data from users computers and install different software programs (such as: spyware, adult dialer programs, web search toolbars, bulk mailers, and even remote control utilities), many users still fail to recognize a problem until their PC has already been compromised. User failure to take essential and timely precautions to minimize web exposure frequently results in the never ending cycle of maintaining an already compromised computer that will experience random software crashes and unexpected behavior caused by permanent damage to critical system files.



TYPICAL WEB SECURITY
CHALLENGES

  • Browser hijacking
  • Spyware & Adware
  • Phishing & Pharming
  • System compromise
  • Trojans & Crimeware
  • Buffer overflow exploits

Some users feel a false sense of security that comes from heavy reliance on the protection offered by personal firewalls and anti-virus products. Yes, these products offer a great deal of security protection; however, they require that many necessary preconditions be met in order to be effective:

  • a) The underlying browser/operating system is tightened up and properly "patched" with all the latest vendor fixes;
  • b) The latest release of a personal firewall is properly configured and the latest bug fixes applied;
  • c) Anti-virus software is properly patched and the latest virus definitions installed;
  • d) The user has not made any critical system, browser, or third-party software configurations errors.

The ADVANCED MEGAPROXY® WEB SSL VPN SERVICE is a valuable addition to anyone's sound web security strategy. Megaproxy® Web SSL VPN is not a replacement for other security solutions. Our service is complementary and can provide a degree of protection that may not be offered by firewall and anti-virus products. Furthermore, besides being a security asset, our service also considerably speeds up your web experience and blocks annoying pop up ads.

FILLING-IN THE GAP

Neither online privacy nor web security problems can be easily resolved by an individual technological solution. However, through a cohesive combination of consistent user actions and intelligently selected technology tools, any Internet user can achieve a considerable comfort level online. When realized in conjunction with a sound overall security strategy, user awareness regarding on/offline data gathering and dissemination practices, the latest technology trends, and sensitive information release considerations can dramatically enhance one's web experience without compromising any of the benefits the web has to offer.
