Law firms secure workplace Internet access infrastructure to ensure the highest levels of data and network security. With COVID-19, millions of attorneys are working from home accessing the same work content, but on their home WiFi. With the existing home WiFi usage by family members, it becomes a daunting and impractical challenge to attempt to secure home WiFi networks. Yet, companies and their IT departments still need to protect company data.
FetchPro is the perfect short and long-term solution to secure computers used by remote workers. Attorneys using FetchPro to access the Internet on their Mac and Windows computers do not use their home WiFi to do so, thereby eliminating the need to secure the home WiFi infrastructure. FetchPro creates a direct connection between the computer and the smartphone, turning the smartphone into a high-speed, stable, secure modem.
FetchPro offers additional cyber defense including blocking non secure websites by blocking not https sites, encrypting all the DNS requests made by computer web browsers through TLS over DNS, and protecting Internet searches from third-party tracking.
FetchPro does not enable a wireless signal or a broadcast signal of any kind, and instead establishes a wired connection from the iPhone or Android smartphone to the Mac or Windows computer. This means that the computer’s Internet access is not known to any local devices, and remains completely undetectable to any other local WiFi or hotspot user.
