    Netgear announces Armor powered by BitDefender


    Dave

    Netgear has announced  a new home wifi security product called, Armor.  Powered by BitDefender, Netgear Armor provides advanced cyber threat protection for your home network, mobile, iOT, and smart devices.  It looks to protect your home from viruses, spyware, hackers, spam, and phishing.

     

    Armor is a firmware for Netgear Wifi routers that will centralize security for your PC's and devices.  It also includes the BitDefender Family Pack anti-malware software for Windows, MacOS, iOS, and Android devices.  It will first be available on the NightHawk AC2300 router free for 90 days and $69.99 annually after that.

     

    Stay tuned to RESETForums and RESET.FM podcast for more details on Armor as I will speak with Netgear at CES 2018

    Interesting concept but at the end of the day all endpoints should have there own security installed. Thinking about all our devices that ROAM off-network.... I do like the fact that it sounds like it allows us to have central management for all our devices.

    If you had to pay for subscription for end-point security then you’ll need to think harder - pay a little for many (hosts), or may more for one Gateway.

     

    The real issue is deep-inspection - certificate-pinning and Google’s QUIC makes it impossible.

    I have had a few netgear routers and I am not that impressed with their frequency or duration of firmware updates. they also have shown up on a number of announced vulnerabilities over the years which they won't fix. at this point I have relegated any netgear routers on my site to AP duty.

    • Let's start small with the definition. If you know about podcasts already you can skip ahead.  
       
      What is a podcast?  There is no set definition but in general a podcast is a voice recording on a subject that you can usually listen to however and whenever you want.  Let's break these down a little bit and that will also help define the term for you.

    • Here is something that wasn't planned but came to me while I was at Unveiled.  The Unveiled event was a little lackluster so I had a little fun with the DJI Osmo Pocket.  Take a look.

    • TP-Link's Wi-Fi 6 Routers
      I talked with TP-Link about their AX series routers.  The Deco X10 is a Tri-Band mesh router that will come in a pack of two for $350.  I was told Q3 for release but if that sounds like a long time don't forget that we don't have anything that will talk with the AX standard yet.  
      It's a good looking box that I hope will perform well and have plenty of features.  I've read good things about the Deco series and there were a few good sales last year on the M5.  I really should test the M5!
       

       
      Here it is.  Yes, it's huge! Not a hockey puck like the M5 is.  What do you think?
