The internet-of-things has certainly made our lives infinitely easier. Connected smart TVs and fridges, routers, virtual home assistants, locks and alarms might be the lifestyle norm in 2018, but they also represent new vulnerabilities because their design lacks even some basic safeguards. Internet-connected households need a digital safety solution to protect their networks and the connected devices powering their homes because these devices are quickly becoming preferred targets of cyber-criminals. Which is why it’s good news that Norton Core (a high-performance, high-speed Wifi router that makes digital security the primary feature) is available in Australia now.
According to the Norton Cyber Security Insights Report (2017), more than six million Australians were affected by cyber-crime in 2017. Norton Core helps protect home networks and the devices connected to it, including computers and mobile devices, from malware, viruses, hackers, and cyber-criminals. This innovative router also offers:
- Customisable parental controls that allow parents the flexibility to set parameters that work for their family, including daily screen time limits for each child.
- Filters for accessible content.
- An internet pause button.
The router is designed in the form of a geodesic dome, a design that was inspired by defense and weather radars. What this unique design does is it allows you to place it out in the open, as part of your home décor, which adds to improved range and coverage. That’s right, say goodbye to chunky routers that barely offer any coverage. You can put the Norton Core in any part of your home – the living room, kitchen, bedroom, study – and it’ll simply look like a stylish home accessory.
When you purchase a Norton Core (in Granite Grey), you’ll also get a one-year subscription to Norton Core Security Plus, which will cover your connected devices at home and up to 10 desktops, laptops and mobile devices.
Norton Core is exclusively available for purchase in Australia at Harvey Norman nationwide, for $399.
