Now with NETGEAR Armor powered by Bitdefender, you have access to advanced security features on compatible NETGEAR routers, including safe browsing, vulnerability assessment, device management and protection for every device in your home.
Any outbound connection is checked against the Bitdefender cloud, where we keep our URL blacklist of unsafe or non-secure websites. We currently have the best available database of malicious locations on the Internet. So no matter what page you land on, you know you’ll be safe from phishing and online fraud.
Scan and identify network security flaws: backdoors, weak or default passwords, and unsecured or poorly encrypted communications. When NETGEAR Armor finds something, it correlates information from your devices with online vulnerability databases. You then get a thorough report that includes tips on how to address your specific issues and secure your network.
NETGEAR Armor powered by Bitdefender easily blocks hackers from accessing your smart home devices, such as Internet-enabled thermostats, refrigerators, baby monitors, and security cameras. You’ll receive instant alerts when new devices join your network, so you can immediately block Wi-Fi access for devices you don’t recognize.
With Bitdefender VPN, your connections are secure and encrypted, and your online activity is kept private, even when you’re on an unsecured public network. Enjoy 200MB of free encrypted data traffic per day*.
*200MB of data/day per device included for up to 10 devices. Additional Premium VPN subscription (annual $39.99) required for unlimited data and additional features.
Blocks attempts to send private information via non-encrypted connections requested from devices, services or apps. Users can surf non-HTTPs sites, but are protected from sending private information over non-secure connections with or without their knowledge.
Learns how devices in the home network behave using machine learning algorithms and cloud correlation. This allows the NETGEAR Armor router to identify and shut down any abnormal behavior.
For example, your smart fridge will suddenly try and connect to an unknown server and try do download malicious files. The NETGEAR Armor router will block the malicious connection.
This module protects the entire network by preventing client devices becoming part of a botnet army. Users will be protected against the most common attack against IoT devices: brute force attacks (threats over FTP, SSH, Telnet, HTTP will be blocked).
DoS attacks disrupt traffic by overwhelming the target or the underlying infrastructure with a flood of packets. The NETGEAR Armor powered by Bitdefender technology correlates and blocks coordinated attacks and acts as a DDoS protection layer. Users perceive no disruption: their devices keep working normally, without malfunctions.
Threat types may be incoming or outgoing - TCP.Flood, Syn.Flood, Ping.Flood
Thanks to this Intrusion Detection/Protection Systems like technology, the home NETGEAR Armor router can protect even devices with known vulnerabilities. Users don’t have to replace all vulnerable devices that are already in their smart home.
