AlphaShield Inc. announced the launch of AlphaShield, an Internet privacy protection device that protects consumers and SOHO users with "always on" broadband Internet connections from outside security breaches. AlphaShield is a plug & play product that should require no set-up, no configuration and no maintenance and provide a high level of security.

The device is designed to conceal a computer's IP address from outsiders, maintain user control of information in and out of a PC and automatically disconnect a computer when there is no user activity.

More specifically:
- Stealth IP makes the computer invisible to others surfing the Internet by placing the IP address onto the AlphaShield which blocks unauthorized access.

- Real-time Packet Authorization (RPA) technology inspects all packets of information and allows only the requested inquiry to enter the computer.

- AlphaGAP technology stops malicious attacks directed to a computer through an intelligent disconnection/reconnection process.

Availability and Pricing
AlphaShield is available immediately for direct purchase on the company's Web site at www.alphashield.com, and through retail partners starting at $149.99 USD and $269.99 CAD.
