Anonymizer: Total Net Shield

January 11, 2006 03:44 PM EST | Software | Email to Friend

Total Net ShieldTechnically savvy Web users require sophisticated online identity protection that provides them total control over their privacy. Anonymizer Total Net Shield works by creating an encrypted "virtual tunnel" to and from your computer to shield you from even the most complex methods of online spying and snooping. Total Net Shield is similar to the secure Virtual Private Networks (VPN) that corporations use, but it's designed for personal use.

Secure tunneling creates an impregnable Secure Shell (SSH) connection from your computer to your destination site, protecting you from man in the middle (MITM) attacks and evil twin scams.

MITM attackers are able to read, insert, and modify online communications between two parties without either one knowing that their communications had been compromised. Total Net Shield protects you from this attack by encrypting all of your online communications with SSH tunneling. Read customer comments on Anonymizer products

Evil twins trick wireless users into connecting a laptop or PDA to a tainted hotspot by posing as a legitimate wi-fi provider at the airport or your local coffee shop. Once you connect to their wireless network, the evil twins can watch your online activities and steal your confidential information. Total Net Shield safeguards you from this threat by encrypting all of your online activities so the evil twins are unable to access your passwords, credit card numbers, and other personal information.

With your Total Net Shield email address, you can communicate with confidence knowing that your emails are encrypted. In addition, it keeps your chat, instant messaging, and newsgroup communications secure and confidential.
