AI Security™

Cyberthreats are evolving. So are we.

Online Protection

Plume filters out suspicious content as your devices connect to the Internet, providing you with real-time threat protection against crypto-mining, ransomware, malware, viruses, botnets, phishing attacks and more.

Advanced IoT Protection™

Plume identifies all your connected devices and continuously monitors them for suspicious activity. If a device is compromised, Plume quarantines the device, preventing the threat from spreading to rest of your connected devices.

We’re local, faster, and… well, FASTER.

If you've never heard of VNET, let's get you up to speed. We began in 1990 as an IT services provider (SOFTEK) and later revolutionized the region’s internet offerings with the launch of Velocity.Net (ISP) in 1996. Since then, we have grown to become the region’s leading internet, business technology, and voice services provider. Today we are expanding our commitment to the community by investing in a next-generation fiber optic network - designed to deliver world-class speeds and services, but with local service and support to homes and business throughout Erie County.
