Zyxel Launches Smart Home Gateway Security Solution

November 12, 2019 GMT

ANAHEIM, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 12, 2019--

Zyxel Communications, a leading provider of secure broadband networking, Internet access and connected home products, today announced it has teamed up with F-Secure to integrate the company’s award-winning cyber security software into Zyxel’s residential gateways and devices. The integration of F-Secure’s software with Zyxel’s world-class hardware enables service providers to deliver secure high-speed broadband and WiFi connectivity to their subscribers while protecting them from a growing array of cyber attacks targeting their connected home devices.

Zyxel products featuring eHomeShield powered by F-Secure provide robust protection from hackers that can easily access the home network through smart internet-connected devices such as smart TVs, gaming consoles or webcams that have poor online security provisions. Once access to the home network is achieved by hackers, all devices on the network can be accessed potentially resulting in loss of privacy, identity theft, threats to physical safety, and use of the network to launch distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks.

Features and Benefits of Zyxel Solutions featuring eHomeShield:

“Explosion of smart home IoT devices has lead to an increase in cyber threats and privacy breaches. The home broadband router, which is also the gateway to the internet, is uniquely positioned to defend homes against these threats,” explained Brian Feng, Senior Vice President at Zyxel Communications. “Zyxel is proud to partner with F-Secure, an industry leader in cyber-security, to bring a turnkey suite of home security solutions to service providers that can be effortlessly packaged into premium revenue generating services.”

Zyxel eHomeShield is available to service providers on select Zyxel residential gateways in the following packages:

“The demand for connected home security is increasing every single day, and we’re thrilled to work with Zyxel and their service provider network to provide F-Secure’s world-class protection and premium features, such as comprehensive parental controls, to connected homes,” said Brian Murray, Head North America at F-Secure.

Zyxel will host a free webinar about the new eHomeShield Cyber Security Solution on Thursday, December 5, 2019, at 11 a.m. Pacific Time. To register to attend the webinar, visit http://zyxel.us/cybersecuritypr.
