Using a generic router for your broadband

by | Jan 27, 2021 | Connectivity, Security

Are you still using the generic, basic router that came from your broadband supplier for your business connection?

If you are using a generic router for your business broadband, you need to review its security capabilities.

Many organisations use the generic model that came with their broadband connection. However, there are more advanced routers available that can control your IT and voice traffic. They can also network to your devices, such as printers, WiFi access points, mobiles and conference units, for example. These more advanced routers can act as a firewall giving you far more protection from cyber attacks.

A basic router will work to a certain extent, but if you need a more robust (secure) Firewall, it may be time to consider better options.

MF Telecom Services can offer advice on your office or home office routers.  We are certified DrayTek partners.
