D-Link (Taipei, Taiwan) and McAfee (Santa Clara, CA) have come up with the AC2600 Wi-Fi router, which is powered by McAfee, with the aim of automatically increasing security for devices on the home network and addressing the increased need for online security as people's lives become increasingly connected.

The comprehensive setup includes D-Link's high-performance dual-band 802.11ac router with MU-MIMO technology that enhances network capacity and efficiency for users, McAfee Secure Home Platform that automatically protects all devices connected to the network, and the Intel Home Wi-Fi Chipset WAV500 Series to deliver robust Wi-Fi connectivity to numerous connected devices at the same time, running a range of high-bandwidth applications.

As the number of connected devices in the home continue to increase, evolving security issues have come to the fore as IoT devices are subject to attacks just like any other connected device like a PC or smartphone. The D-Link, McAfee router automatically secures all connected devices at the network level in a home, including non-display IoT devices, providing an additional layer of protection from potential hackers and for members of the home using devices and accessing online content.

According to Gartner, by 2020 there will be 20 billion connected things, and their role and influence is set to dramatically increase over the next 10 years.

"We're on the forefront of preventing and fighting cybercrime as consumers need to feel safe and protected as cyber threats continue to rise," said John Giamatteo, executive vice president, consumer business group, McAfee. "Our partnership with D-Link helps consumers benefit from both increased connectivity and peace of mind knowing that their connected devices are protected."

The DIR-2680 AC2600 Wi-Fi Router Powered by McAfee is beinbg shown at CES 2018, and will be available for purchase in Q2 2018.
