Well we have found a router that comes with MacAfee antivirus built inside it. Though MacAfee is not the best antivirus, some sort of protection is better than no protection.
The Arris Surfboard SBG7580-AC is the router that comes with an antivirus. You might have an antivirus installed on your PC, but the protection is limited to the PC or the platform where the security solution is installed. Well, the Arris Surfboard is a one-of-a-kind router that extends its security to all the devices connected to the routers network.
The device relies on the MacAfee’s Global Threat Intelligence to flag a potentially dangerous websites. For example, if you visit a dangerous website, you will see pop-up saying that the website is not secure. This can greatly reduce the number of malware infected PC’s worldwide.
The router also provides you with basic features you see in other routers like QOS,IP Filtering, Firewall etc. Also, you don’t have to remember the login password anymore; the router comes with an Android and iOS application to control the entire router.
Here are the Pros of Arris Surfboard SBG7580-AC :
• Supports 802.11ac WiFi access point
• Has 4 Gigabit Ethernet Ports
• Perfect for hard-core gamer’s and video streamers
• Supports download speeds of upto 1.4 Gbps (LAN) and 1750 Mbps (WiFi)
Here are the cons of Arris Surfboard SBG7580-AC:
• It is not compatible with ATT, Verizon or CenturyLink and requires a Cable Internet Service to work.
• The build quality is not that great and design is pretty outdated.
• No physical antennae, hence the wireless range is affected.
PRICE : $189.00 (not available in India)
