Let ProtectIQ provide the home network security you need.

With the explosion of the Internet of Things, consumers have access to everything from smartphones to smart fridges. These interconnected devices may make life more convenient—but they may also leave users more vulnerable to security issues. As new smart technologies enable data to move more freely across networks and devices, users must be equally smart about how they defend their data against hackers.

Many of these systems have simple or no built-in security considerations and a lot of IT professionals would tell you that you need to set up a separate home network for everything other than your PCs and smartphones. We say that these IT professionals need to go back to school. You don’t need more than one network if you have a GigaSpire with ProtectIQ.

With ProtectIQ™, you will receive the internet security you need. It leverages a large cloud database of known virus and ransomware threats. By looking for the specific signatures of these threats in real-time, ProtectIQ can terminate the transfer of data before a malicious payload is delivered to any vulnerable devices in the network. As new threats are emerging daily, the threat database is continuously updated to offer protection against the latest threats. ProtectIQ is a network-level security application that works quietly in the background and proactively keeps malicious websites, viruses, and intrusion away from your home 24×7.

ProtectIQ is included with your RTC Networks internet service on the Gigaspire router. If you don’t currently have a Gigaspire please contact us to install this upgraded router for free. For more information please visit our Wi-Fi page.
