TP-Link launches new HomeCare Pro with Avira-powered IoT security for smart home

TP-Link and Avira together created the HomeCare Pro security suite to help homeowners deal with the vulnerabilities built into smart homes, according to Telecompaper. This platform is sited at the router level, the best place to ensure gateway security for an entire host of smart devices. Powered by Avira’s “engineered-in-Germany” AI technology and deep antivirus experience, HomeCare Pro starts by securing the Wi-Fi gateway to the home and continues to protect the home network and all devices.

HomeCare Pro protects all connected devices in the home network against external and internal attacks and blocks incoming threats with its malicious content filter. Within the network, HomeCare Pro identifies and blocks suspicious behavior from individual devices and flags invasive tracker activity. Its distributed denial of service attack (DDoS) protection prevents devices from joining malicious botnets and being misused to knock targeted sites off the internet, according to Telecompaper. These extensive features are driven by advanced machine learning techniques to give users a nearly hands-free secure online experience.
