We take security very seriously at ViaSat, and we make every effort to ensure our Exede network is secure. Individual customers on our network also have a big role to play in staying safe online, which means using things like strong passwords that you change regularly, firewalls and antivirus software.
There are plenty of good ones out there, but a general rule is one that you pay for will probably be a more robust tool that’s updated more frequently than a free one.
It’s important to protect your computer from viruses, especially because viruses can send and receive data without your permission, which may use your data allowance.
The Acceptable Use Policy outlines important requirements regarding permissible and prohibited uses of ViaSat’s Internet service. Some of the prohibited uses have security implications. View the Acceptable Use Policy for Exede on our legal documents page.
