Home Internet Security Challenges for Consumers Addressed - iGuardian Launches on Kickstarter

  (August 07, 2014)

SAN JOSE, California, August 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --


  • World's first home Internet security solution specifically designed for consumers
  • Itus Networks introduces iGuardian; vastly improves Internet security for home users
  • Highly effective device delivers affordable, easy-to-use enterprise-grade security for the connected home without contracts

At DefCon 22 in Las Vegas, NV today, Itus Networks, the home network security company, announced a Kickstarter campaign to crowdfund iGuardian. The device features a completely new approach to home Internet security for consumers and aims to change the way home users address network security. Simple to connect, iGuardian gives households access to business-level security at a fraction of the cost.

The average consumer cannot reliablysecure their home Internet connection at an affordable price. Most devices connected to home networks in US homes are vulnerable to breaches by cybercriminals[1]. Today, a consumer's only optionsare antivirus or routers. Antivirus is not comprehensive and only blocks attacks when the threat has already reached the computer. Alternatively, routers are not primarily built for security, relying on outdated technology to protect and give a false sense of security.


In addition, connected homes today feature a vast array of unsecured devices that allow cybercriminals to easily breach home networks, steal personal data and access social accounts. Unsecured devices include smart TVs, cable boxes, game consoles, security systems, thermostats, smoke detectors and many more.

Thanks to its affordable price and foolproof installation, iGuardian from Itus Networks gives families access to enterprise-class threat protection for their home Internetconnection. The device is based on Linux open-source and designedto block cyber attacks, filter out malware and undesirable content. It auto-installsin five minutes and requires zero configuration or technical knowledge.

A goal of $125,000 has been set for the crowdfunding campaign.

At Defcon 22, Itus Networks not only introduces iGuardian, but is also a Gold Sponsor of SOHOpelessly Broken. The router hacking contest by the Institute for Security Evaluators (ISE) demonstrates how easily home routers can be hacked and their security disabled.
