Bitdefender BOX 2, the revolutionary consumer device that shields homes from the growing global wave of cybercrime, will be available soon in Europe as part of its global launch. The product, a CES 2018 Innovation Award Honoree in the new Cybersecurity category, will launch in March in France and Germany and in April in Romania.
Featuring award-winning multi-layered security, Bitdefender BOX 2 simply plugs into a router to protect all internet-connected devices, from refrigerators to security cameras to laptops, phones and anything else that can ever go online. It was launched in the U.S. late last year.
Ciprian Istrate, Bitdefender’s Vice President of Consumer Solutions: “As our homes are becoming more vulnerable to hacker attacks with every new smart device added to the home network, Bitdefender BOX 2 continues the global launch to offer peace of mind to all the families that want to add more convenience to their life through smart devices.”
Bitdefender BOX 2 is fully manageable through the Bitdefender Central app on a mobile device. Whenever a new device connects to the network, it sends an instant notification so the user can take action and control permissions for the device.
The Safe Browsing feature blocks malicious URLs to protect from phishing and online fraud, Vulnerability Assessment continuously scans for flaws in the users network security, Advanced Parental Controls fights cyber-bullying, online predators and other threats to children, and Sensitive Data Protection ensures no sensitive data is sent unencrypted.
Anomaly Detection determines how devices behave under normal circumstances so it can block irregular, malicious activity while Exploit Prevention blocks attempts to exploit vulnerabilities in your network and Brute Force Protection keeps hackers from taking over your devices.
Protection via Bitdefender BOX 2 further ensures digital pivacy by activating a powerful VPN feature that protects your devices when outside the home network and blocks attempts to send sensitive data like credit card information and authentification information over unencrypted connections.
