ARRIS (NASDAQ:ARRS) announced the ARRIS Secure Home Gateway portfolio. The gateway portfolio will embed the McAfee Secure Home Platform by Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) Security for security for all devices connected to the home network, including IoT devices such as gaming consoles, connected cameras, wearables, and smart TVs and appliances. Each gateway (cable modem and WiFi router) in the new SURFboard Secure Home Gateway portfolio will integrate the new McAfee security platform directly into the device and carry the designation "McAfee Secure Home Internet."
The CPE product line is intended to offer network-level security to protect all devices connected to the home network against threats like viruses, malware, and phishing scams. The products are designed to act like a home security system, managing the flow of data between the Internet and the home's connected devices. A mobile app is intended to let consumers manage their home gateway security settings.
"ARRIS's new Secure Home Gateway portfolio embodies our commitment to delivering leading broadband and WiFi performance with seamless security for today's connected home," said Sandy Howe, SVP and GM, Consumer Products Group at ARRIS. "Our gateways with McAfee Secure Home Internet will act like a home security system for your connected devices. They combine our industry-leading technology with the latest McAfee security to deliver powerful, network-level protection that guards your family, your devices, and your data against the latest Internet threats, while delivering the next era of broadband and entertainment experiences."
The ARRIS SURFboard SBG7580-AC will be the first device to embed the McAfee Secure Home Platform. The SURFboard SBG7580-AC with McAfee Secure Home Internet is expected to become available around the first half of 2017 at Amazon, Best Buy (in-store and online), and Surfboard.com. Future ARRIS broadband devices will also feature this embedded security - adding to the portfolio of Secure Home Gateway solutions.
ARRIS will demonstrate the SBG7580-AC with McAfee Secure Home Internet at CES in its private suite.
