The modern home is filled with connected devices that provide added convenience, efficiency, and safety for family members. But these new devices also open up homes to security risks, including data theft and privacy violations. Devices like PCs and smartphones have been protected by endpoint security solutions from email-, web-, and file-based threats for years. Today, however, endpoint solutions are not well suited to securing IoT devices from vulnerabilities and threats. This is chiefly because most of these new devices operate on closed platforms and are limited in their computing capabilities, leaving little or no ability to install security solutions.
Trend Micro™ Home Network Security (HNS) provides protection against network intrusions, web threats, and identity theft for every device connected to the home network. Heralding a new era of internet security, HNS uses advanced deep packet inspection (DPI) combined with enterprise-grade intrusion prevention technology to provide families with an all-new extra layer of protection and visibility for the home network and connected devices, such as game consoles, smart TVs, and smart home gadgets. An easy-to-use companion smartphone app lets users make changes on the go and stay aware with timely and insightful notifications about important security events in the home network.
Furthermore, Trend Micro provides a security module for router vendors, which offers some of the same base security functionality as HNS. This is suitable for advanced users who want more control over the configuration and management of their home routers.
