ARRIS gateways with McAfee Secure Home Internet will offer network-level security that seamlessly protects all devices connected to the home network against emerging threats like viruses, malware, and phishing scams. They will achieve this by acting like a home security system, managing the flow of data between the Internet and the home's connected devices to ensure that users are guarded against known threats. A simple-to-use mobile app will allow for convenient customization, enabling consumers to easily manage their home gateway security settings.
ARRIS's Secure Home Gateway portfolio with the McAfee Secure Home Platform will provide several key benefits:
- Smart security: Hassle-free protection uses the cloud to protect internet-connected devices in the home against the latest malware and phishing and identity scams.
- Seamless app management: Access and manage features including IoT device protection, device identification, and pausing internet access. Receive real-time alerts about potential vulnerabilities, new connected devices entering the home, and more.
- Robust parental controls: Easily protect your whole family by setting individual schedules and restrictions for every device and user in your home.
