ISP, Hackers & AuctoritasAuctoritas is a Latin word and is the origin of English "authority" Intrusion

The Gateway device your Internet Service Provider supplies you with to be able to access the Internet has security implications that you may not be aware of - placing your privacy at risk.

The Gateway device is an all-in-one box that contains embedded systems with integrated functionality like Cable Modem, Router, USB Server, unfettered UPnP service, Ethernet Switch and Wireless Access Point. Most subscribers are not aware of the security implications of that Gateway device because they TRUST that their ISP and/or Auctoritas will not violate their implicit trust.

The ISP security implication issue: Your ISP provided Gateway enables your ISP's Technical Support personnel to remotely manage the Gateway device and have direct access to your Home Network or any connected devices with or without your knowledge or explicit permission - an unnecessary risk to your family's privacy.

Our solution that protects your privacy and effectively BLOCKS your ISP, Emerging Threats, Hackers and Auctoritas intrusion is our ER-X security system that implements a stateful Firewall plus a Firewall method called ACL - Access Control Lists. An ACL specifies which users or system processes are granted access to objects, as well as what operations are allowed on given objects. How do we secure access to your network? We reconfigure the ISP Gateway device by placing it in Bridge mode so that it only acts as a Cable Modem that provides access to the Internet only – all other integrated functionality will now be disabled - we then connect our specially configured EdgeRouter-X to the bridged device. That special configuration for the ER-X contains specific Firewall and ACL rules that blocks your ISP, Hackers and Auctoritas from accessing your network. In bridge mode, your ISP can still access the cable modem for service diagnostics and firmware updates but cannot access your private home network or any connected devices you have active or chose to add to your private network. If you do require Remote Assistance from your ISP software tools are available to be able to come into your "world" and help under your strict observance.

In most households, this scene is likely to have at least one person yelling for someone else to get off the internet!

Our experience is that most consumer grade mass produced integrated products - like your ISP Gateway - do not provide ROBUST seamless integrated capability and functionality. And no matter how good the glowing reports and reviews are for these products, they all continue to have far too many disruptive issues. IT-Expert on Call strives to provide our clients with a stable and secure network environment comprised of robust devices that we know from experience will provide needed reliability, capability|functionality and transparency. Networks we install and support should be invisible once set up correctly. You should just be able to use it whenever and however you want without having to deal with dropped connections, reboots, freeze ups, etc.
