ARRIS Launches First Gateway with ARRIS Secure Home Internet by McAfee; Exclusively at Best Buy – PR Newswire (press release)

Cyberattacks in the connected home are a growing consumer concern. A recent McAfee study** revealed that 81 percent of consumers think it’s important that their online identity and internet-connected devices are secure. As consumers install increasing numbers of connected devices into their home, savvy cybercriminals have morphed their focus to those new devices, knowing that many consumers fail to take the proper security precautions to protect themselves. Today, any device that connects to the internet is a potential target if not properly secured. This is why ARRIS partnered with McAfee, a leading independent cybersecurity company, to enable best-in-class security at the point where data flows in and out of the home.

Product Highlights

“The ARRIS SBG7580-AC is the first gateway to incorporate device security into the gateway, the entry point for internet into the home. In doing so, we’ve created a single product that delivers cybersecurity protection to devices in the home, including unsecured IoT devices,” said Sandy Howe, SVP and GM, Consumer Products Group at ARRIS. “Instead of installing and updating security software on every single connected device, now people can simply connect to protect. ARRIS pioneered gateway technology, and the SBG7580-AC with ARRIS Secure Home Internet by McAfee showcases our 20+ years of technology communications expertise.”

“We pioneered the digital life protection space where we made it our mission to protect all the devices that our customers use,” said John Giamatteo, Executive Vice President, Consumer Business Group at McAfee. “With the integration of Secure Home Internet into the ARRIS gateway, we are delivering on this mission with an industry leader. The best security software is the kind that people actually use, and together with ARRIS, McAfee is making it easier than ever for consumers to protect every connected device in the home.”

Pricing and Availability The ARRIS SURFboard SBG7580-AC with ARRIS Secure Home Internet by McAfee is available exclusively at BestBuy.com for $199.99.
