Kaspersky Lab has introduced Secure Connection in Nigeria, a solution for encrypting traffic on Windows and Mac computers. Based on VPN technology, it automatically enables encryption when the risk of data interception is most dangerous for the user, for example, when connecting to public Wi-Fi or using online banking or other sites containing private information.

The unprotected, or poorly protected, transfer of data puts a person’s privacy, data and even their money at risk. By using tools that are freely available on the Internet, intruders can read and use information transmitted over these connections, including messages, passwords and files.

Kaspersky Lab’s Secure Connection ensures reliable encryption of transmitted data, and if the user forgets to enable it, the solution will display a reminder when it is most needed. For example, it will offer its services if a Wi-Fi network is unsafe or – in the case of the Windows version – if the user attempts to open a site with critical information (email, online banking, e-payment system, online store or social networking site) without encryption. If preferred, Secure Connection can also be set to manual control or continuous encryption…
