September 17, 2020 — Broadband access solutions leader Zyxel and cybersecurity innovator F-Secure are taking their partnership to the next level by offering service providers Zyxel Home Cybersecurity, delivering fast, secure WiFi that protects every connected device on a subscriber’s home network from the growing legion of online threats.
These two companies currently collaborate to bring secure WiFi to connected homes. They will further this partnership by offering Zyxel Gateways, which will combine F-Secure’s award-winning Connected Home Security powered by F-Secure SENSE with selected Zyxel broadband gateways through Zyxel’s service provider customers, first in North America and then in Europe.
“The need to secure connected homes has never been more urgent, and Zyxel’s service provider customers are uniquely prepared to meet that demand,” said Paul Palmer, Vice President, Business Development, Consumer Security Business Unit at F-Secure. “With F-Secure SENSE-connected home security ready to go, these gateways offer breakthrough protection powered by artificial intelligence and enhanced by premium features, including parental controls and advanced smart home protection.”
“It’s great to have F-Secure as a partner,” said Denise Lin, President of Zyxel Communications Corp. “Combining their AI-powered security expertise with Zyxel’s broadband and WiFi strengths has created a winning solution for service providers, who can now offer their customers whole-home network security with one cybersecurity-empowered gateway, making the secure smart home a reality. These solutions have minimal impact on consumer broadband speeds, guaranteeing reliable, high-performance service for unbeatable customer satisfaction.
Zyxel Home Cybersecurity Gateways are designed to protect all connected devices that populate today’s high-tech homes. This includes internet of things (IoT) devices that are not equipped with security software such as smart TVs, internet-connected appliances, smart-thermostats, and gaming consoles.
“Our combined solution protects families from online threats and malicious sites while making it easy to ensure kids are surfing the web safely on any device,” Palmer said. “Secure Gateways allow service providers to protect their customers’ families while increasing revenues and improving brand loyalty.”
