Primus claims secure broadband first
Australia’s fourth largest ISP, Primus Telecom, has launched a secure DSL service in the hope of boosting its credibility as a tier-one carrier. The new service will see the ISP partner with Trend Micro and Check Point to create what it claims is the country’s first broadband service with built-in security.
Initially, the vendor will offer a base service equipped with a firewall only, followed by a professional service with additional antivirus and anti-spam filter options.
Primus Telecom corporate product manager, Anthony Reid, said the need to differentiate prompted the new service.
