Viruses and hackers know how to attack; Frontier Secure helps consumers defend
STAMFORD, Conn., Sep 20, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) --
These days, protecting yourself online is a full-time job that requires significant computer skills. Frontier Communications' (NYSE:FTR, news, filings) Frontier SecureTM has the tools needed to keep information on personal computers safe and provide a strong defense against cybercrime. September is "National Preparedness Month" and a time to put Frontier SecureTM cyber-security services to work. Throughout the month, free webinars and tutorials by Frontier's local managers offer businesses, schools, senior centers and others a chance to learn more about Frontier SecureTMservices that shield computers from objectionable or harmful Internet content, offer security/virus protection, provide unlimited data back-up, and give users access to 24/7 U.S.-based tech support.
The ease of Internet access means greater sensitivity to its dangers. Teaching Internet safety is now as important as teaching children to look both ways before crossing the street, according to a senior executive at Frontier.
"Parents and guardians want and need to guard against unwelcome computer intrusions and threats but often feel overwhelmed," said Melinda White, Executive Vice President of Frontier. "Frontier Secure offersleading-edge programs that give adults peace of mind about the well-being of their children while online and guarantees the security of important images, personal documents and financial records."

Technical issues are addressed by Frontier RescueTechs, a 100% U.S.-based team available 24/7 to help with PC or Mac(R) problems."
As part of National Preparedness Month, Frontier employees are supporting numerous consumer- and business-focused events designed to raise awareness of computer security and viruses and the personal and financial dangers of cyber theft.

"At the end of the day, especially where children are concerned, a sense of security is the most valuable service Frontier can provide a customer."
