SaskTel and security go hand in hand. SaskTel Internet services employ several security features to help keep your computer and important information safe.
A firewall prevents unauthorized Internet users from accessing your computer and private home network. Many of our High Speed Internet services include firewall protection through our wireless networking solution, HomeNet.
Encryption is used to protect data in transit through e-mail and computer networks. With sasktel.net e-mail, your messages are encoded with 128-bit encryption so your e-mail is safe and for your eyes only.
Spam filtering and virus scanning
With sasktel.net e-mail, all of your incoming and outgoing messages are automatically scanned to keep junk mail and potential viruses from reaching your inbox. You can customize your spam filter to ensure you receive desired messages in a timely manner.
With HomeNet, our wireless networking solution, you have access to customizable parental controls. You decide how much and when and your children can access the internet, and what type of content they cannot access.
Internet Threat Detector
The SaskTel Internet Threat Detector is a new security service that can provide you with an additional layer of protection against identity theft and other threats. Upon sign up, it identifies threats in your Internet traffic, sends you alerts, and shows you step-by-step how to remove these threats that put your personal information at risk.
