Netection LLC Announces HomeNetection, A Home Network Vulnerabilty Scan Service

Network Vulnerabilty Scan and Remediation Service Protects Customers' Home Network From Malicious Attacks.
Feb. 16, 2011 - PRLog -- RALEIGH NC, Feb. 16, 2011–The modem that you use from your DSL or Cable provider is your home's gateway to the world. As your home becomes more wired and connected to the internet via a high speed internet connection, the more susceptible you make yourself to vulnerabilities such as identity theft, viruses and hackers. Your home PC, your Microsoft Xbox360, Sony PS3, your home security systems, your identity and your life can be at risk. The HomeNetection service benignly probes your modem and let's you know of any potential holes that would put your identity at risk of theft, put your PC at risk of viruses, or put your network at risk of backdoor spying.

"If your wireless router is password protected and you've installed anti-virus software on your PC, but a unknown port is open, your network is vulnerable." States Justin Riek, President of HomeNetection. "It's our job to provide peace-of-mind to our customers who are struggling to protect their personal information from hackers and thieves."

As a paid subscriber to the HomeNetection service, not only do you get monthly or weekly checks of your high speed internet modem as well as remediation service, a free service where we explain the who, what and how to fix of the finding, but we view it as our responsibility to provide our customers with answers to all things home network security related.

HomeNetection was born when our founder conducted a scan of his recently installed high speed internet service. The result came back that he had a port open. He called the Internet Service Provider and politely requested that they close the port on the ISP provided modem. They complied, he tested and verified that they indeed did do what he requested. A few months later, being the security professional he was, he did another scan of his modem. After finding the same port open again, he took the necessary steps with the ISP and then set a monthly reminder to perform a scan check.
