New approach to Internet security: Bitdefender Box

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, August 20, 2015

A new approach to Internet security.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   The folks at Bitdefender have been in the business of making security software for years.   Now the company is out with the Bitdefender Box….a nicely styled small square that plugs into your network.   Chief Security Strategist Catalin Cosoi…

“Once you put it in your home, it will protect every device you have there.  Everything connected to the Internet.  So we’re talking about laptops, smartphones, tablets, maybe a smart fridge, a smart TV, a door locker.  Everything that’s connected to the Internet.”

That’s the key advantage….many connected gadgets aren’t capable of running security software on their own.  You’ll need a smartphone for set up…it can work stand alone or be plugged into an existing router.   Some seem to work better than others with the box.  The price…about two hundred dollars…includes the first year of security service.   After that…it will cost you 99 dollars a year.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
