Bitdefender BOX protects your smart home and family from hackers, thieves and spies
Bitdefender, a leading global cybersecurity company protecting over 500 million users worldwide, announces that Bitdefender BOX, its breakthrough IoT security innovation, is now available for purchase in the UK.
Bitdefender BOX, the CES 2018 Innovation Award Honoree, offers complete protection from the growing wave of cybercrime. It simply plugs into your router to protect all internet-connected devices, from Wi-Fi printers to security cameras to smart thermostats, laptops, phones, smart TVs and anything that connects to the internet.
Security hub for the connected home
Bitdefender BOX, designed with award-winning multi-layered security at its core, is easily manageable on a mobile device through the Bitdefender Central app. BOX immediately detects any new device that connects to a network and notifies the user, who can then alter permissions for the device if needed.
Bitdefender BOX comes with a Safe Browsing feature that blocks malicious URLs so users steer clear of phishing and online fraud. At the same time, Vulnerability Assessment scans non-stop for flaws in the user’s network security, while Advanced Parental Controls filters out content that is inappropriate for children and manages kids’ access to the internet. BOX also ensures no sensitive data is sent without encryption, thanks to Sensitive Data Protection.
Malicious activity is blocked by Anomaly Detection, which determines how devices behave under normal circumstances and catches irregularities. Exploit Prevention stops hackers from exploiting vulnerabilities in your network and Brute Force Protection keeps them from taking over your devices.
For greater convenience, owners can control Bitdefender BOX and receive status updates about their protected devices via Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa through a simple list of voice commands, such as: “Alexa ask Bitdefender: Do I have vulnerable devices in my network” or “OK, Google, ask Bitdefender to run a scan on my laptop.”
Price and Availability
Bitdefender BOX is available for purchase at 179 GBP, that also includes Bitdefender Total Security, the award-winning cybersecurity suite to protect an unlimited number of computers, smartphones and tablets running Windows, mac OS, iOS or Android. The subscription after the first year is 89 GBP a year. Bitdefender BOX can be ordered online directly from www.amazon.co.uk.
