Anytime you use an internet connection in a public place like a public wireless hotspot or a hotel room internet acces, you put your data at risk. All data you send can be intercepted easily and quickly by those hackers out there looking for a victim, without your knowledge. Your data could be anything from email address, passwords, emails, Instant Messages or even credit card details.
Using powerful 256-bit AES encryption technology, the iOpus Private Internet Gateway (iPIG) creates a secure "tunnel" that protects your inbound and outbound communications (Email, Web, IM, VOIP, calls, FTP, etc.) at any Wi-Fi hotspot or wired network.
iPIG shields your data from even the most sophisticated methods of online spying and snooping like the "Evil twin attacks". In addition, your sensitive information is not only protected between your computer and the wireless access point you're using, but all the way to iOpus' secure connection servers deep in the Internet. This ensures that your data can't be easily hijacked through the air and at the point it transitions to a "wired" Ethernet connection.
Unlike other technologies, iPig works with any kind of Internet connection (Wifi, WLAN, 802.11 a/b/g, wired ethernet) and requires NO configuration of any kind. You just start your favorite web browser, email client or chat software and switch the iPig encryption on: iPig grabs all Internet traffic before it leaves your PC and encrypts it securely! iPig also works with all major firewall software like Zonealarm or Norton Internet Security. The software runs on Windows 2000, XP and 2003.
iPIG client is free to download and requires you to register with iOpus for a free account. Once account is created, use the username and password in the iPIG client. Basically, once the iPIG client goes active, it connects to iOPUS public server. The free software gives you upto 10MB of data transfer for free after which you need to buy additional bandwidth.
If you want to setup your own iPIG server then the iPIG server edition is available for download this can support upto 5 users for free for unlimited number users, the PRO edition is available for a price.
