Telecom New Zealand introduces free security suite for its broadband users
Telecom Broadband customers are set to benefit from two new initiatives which will provide an enhanced and safer online experience.

From this week Telecom residential Broadband and Dial-Up customers can download a free Telecom Security Suite package (per account) to help guard their home computer against online risks such as viruses, spyware and hackers.

The package is from security provider McAfee and includes a firewall, anti-virus scanner and identity protection, as well as parental tools to help protect children from harmful content.

"Consumer internet users are increasingly concerned about online threats such as viruses, identity theft and hackers," says Telecom GM Broadband Ralph Brayham.

"Providing a free, comprehensive, easy to install security package will ensure our customers can enjoy the Internet with less worry about online nasties."

At the same time, Telecom is announcing a partnership with Thomson, a large modem and gateway provider, which will make state of the art modems available to Telecom Broadband customers. The new devices will be compatible with ADSL2+ technology, the latest generation of broadband technology being deployed by Telecom.

The modems are designed with smart remote diagnostic ability, meaning Telecom will be able to identify and resolve issues remotely.

Thomson operates in more than 30 countries and currently supplies broadband modems and gateways to BT, France Telecom, AOL Europe, and Telefonica.

The free security package licence is available to residential broadband and dialup customers and not applicable to mobile
data services.
