NETGEAR, Inc. adds advanced security and threat detection with NETGEAR Armor built into most Orbi and Nighthawk routers to provide a protective bubble for connected devices in a home network.
Threats traditionally associated with PCs are now present in nearly all connected devices such as Smart TVs, smart thermostats, light switches, home theater systems, security cameras, game consoles, smart speakers, streaming players, tablets, computers, smartphones and other smart home gadgets. According to Bitdefender’s 2020 Consumer Threat Landscape Report, the number of vulnerabilities in Smart TVs increased by 335% and the number of vulnerabilities in IP cameras almost doubled between 2019 and 2020.
NETGEAR Armor is built into the router to monitor activity going to and from the Internet, protecting the devices on your network and eliminating the need and cost for multiple security subscriptions or software.
“With the explosion of connected devices in the home from baby monitors to smart TVs, all of which can be compromised, we understand how overwhelming it can be for individuals and families to know what to do to keep themselves and their information safe,” said David Henry, President & GM of Connected Home Products and Services at NETGEAR. “We realized that a new type of security solution was needed and with this version of NETGEAR Armor, we take worry out of the equation by providing a comprehensive ‘set-it-and-forget-it’ service.”
