Top IoT Security Products
Just how safe are you and your IoT (Internet of Things) devices?
It seems like every day there’s another news story about a major security breach. Keeping information safe online and offline is a top priority. People worry about devices being hacked, about nefarious forces using your own devices to listen to your conversations, record your surroundings and collect sensitive information. Luckily, there are many IoT security products available, so you can take advantage of new technologies while minimizing the risk.
Norton Core Wifi Router
The Norton Core Wifi Router is not only a wifi router, but also a security router. This device’s sole purpose is to protect each and every IoT device that is hooked up to it, in order to give maximum home security. Instead of having to worry about the safety of each of your devices individually, you can now count on the Norton Core Wifi Router to worry about all of it for you.
Even better, this wifi router also updates itself. Now not only do you no longer have to get stressed out over the safety of your IoT devices, but you also don’t have to worry about keeping up with the router updates. It does it all for you, so you can relax.
The Bitdefender Box is a security device that can really come in handy, especially if you have a lot of devices. The more devices you have, the more susceptible you are to cyber attacks. The Bitdefender Box has Network Access Control and an Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) that helps keep your devices at the highest level of safety at all times.
Synaptics Multifactor Biometrics for Mobile
Synaptics recently released this biometric fusion engine specifically to provide one of the best forms of security in existence. This biometric fusion engine can be embedded into an IoT device where it provides a highly accurate face and fingerprint recognition system. Then, it only allows entry to those who match the facial and fingerprint identity. An added benefit of the multifactor biometrics machine is that you can go into the settings and choose whether you want it to require both face and fingerprint recognition, or just one of the two.
There’s more than just a cool factor here. Biometrics offers a level of security far beyond passwords and key codes. For the moment at least, this is the highest level of hard defense possible against others getting access to your device without your consent.
Arris Secure Home Gateway
Arris recently partnered up with Intel to create one of the highest forms of security. The Secure Home Gateway by Arris couldn’t have been made without Intel Security’s McAfee Secure Home Platform. The Secure Home Gateway provides security for all devices that are hooked up to it with the help of McAfee technology. An added bonus feature of this newly released device is that there are parental controls. Now not only can you keep your devices and your home safe, but you can also control when and how your children use connected devices.
Kensington VeriMark Fingerprint Key
The Kensington VeriMark Fingerprint Key is a biometric fingerprint identification device that you plug into your computer. With this device, you are guaranteed to have secure online access. It’s one of the most accurate fingerprint identifying devices out there, which greatly helps prevent false rejection and false acceptance. The greatest benefits about the Verimark Fingerprint Key though are its compatibility with Window Hello and Fast IDentity Online (FIDO) universal second-factor authentication (U2F) standards.
Yubico YubiKey 4C Security Key
Yubico recently released the YubiKey 4C, and they claim that this is the first multiprotocol USB-C authentication device in the world. The function of the YubiKey is to of course provide online security. This device is portable since it was specially designed to fit onto your keychain, so you can take it with you wherever you go. Portable security that you never have worry about is a no-brainer.
Living securely doesn’t have to mean living on edge. With these IoT security products, you’ll be able to get more mileage out of your efforts. Security doesn’t have to be a massive challenge, as it’s easy to plug into your security protocols with these kinds of devices.
