Protecting Your Smart Home By Catching Those Vulnerable IoT Smart Devices That You’ve Forgotten About
Bitdefender is a Romanian internet security company whose product performs extremely well. Bitdefender Box 2 comes with a combined router, VPN, firewall, network manager, and antivirus box. The aim of this unit is to catch those IoT devices that you have forgotten all about.
Take Smart TVs for example. No anti-virus, probably no password. But it has an operating system, and with the right intervention that can be altered to turn your lump of screen into part of a botnet.
The Bitdefender Box 2 scans all the devices in your house and examines each open port. It also has network filters to block many types of attacks. Its engine can block sensitive information from going out from your network if it is not encrypted properly.
One of the biggest issues with IoT devices is that most of the time the users don’t change the default password before starting to use them. Box is designed to identify the default password and prompt you to change it. The company has tried to make it even more effective by partnering with third-parties.
Netgear is one of their first partners who has created a range of routers with in-built Bitdefender. Another useful feature with the Box is the parental control. The best part about it is that machine learning is local and nothing ever is uploaded.
