Addressing Subscriber Security Challenges with Comprehensive Gateway Security Controls


With smartphones, laptops, tablets, and wearables for every family member, along with smart speakers, locks, doorbells, thermostats, and many other devices for home automation, home Wi-Fi networks have become more complex than ever before. They have also become more susceptible to cyberattacks and increasingly sophisticated forms of malware, such as phishing scams, code injections, cryptojacking, cross-site scripting attacks, and more. As the number and frequency of these threats increase, subscriber devices, personal data, and privacy are all at risk, and the average broadband subscriber is not well equipped to fend them off.

This highlights a significant opportunity for service providers, who are uniquely positioned to help their subscribers address this challenge.
