Secure Network for Smart Home

Secure Network for Smart Home

The number of connected devices in a household has become a serious challenge to cybersecurity. Attacks can happen to any one of them – baby monitors, home alarm systems, network-attached storage systems – and lead to privacy breaches, data losses, or even physical damages. See how to safeguard your property in the Internet era with Synology Router.

Keep your whole family safe

No matter how cautious we are, it's sometimes not possible to stop every family member from clicking on that phishing link or sharing Wi-Fi password with others. Now, Synology Router will always be there for them.

  • Threat intelligence: Built-in security filters alert users when they're heading to a malicious website. The databases are automatically updated to keep up with the latest threats.
  • Web privacy: No browsing history is sent to the cloud for analysis.1 The additional support for DNS over HTTPS ensures no attackers or even your ISPs can eavesdrop on which sites you visit.
  • Secure Wi-Fi: You can prevent unknown devices from connecting to your family Wi-Fi – guest Wi-Fi will still be available for guests. The next-gen Wi-Fi standard, WPA3, also equips you with better defenses against brute-force attacks.

Manage the Internet of Things

The IoT devices are often the weakest link in a smart home. They work 24/7 in the background (without us paying much attention to), and we have fewer ways to protect them – the best of which is to do it at the network level.

  • Threat Prevention: This package makes the business-grade intrusion prevention technology available to every household, silently dropping any suspicious packet with no human intervention required.2 Learn more
  • Traffic monitoring: A common symptom of a compromised device is an unusually high amount of traffic (such as from your smart speaker). Keep yourself informed via the regular reports or real-time dashboard, and block any dubious device with just one click.
  • Location-based firewall: Concerned about connections from or to places where most cyberattacks originate? You can block the whole country/region just to be safe.

“This may be my favorite router now when it comes to parental controls. Synology, in my opinion, is years ahead now of anybody that I'd consider to be their competitors in this space.”

Protect kids until they're ready

Some things do not pose a security risk but are dangerous to the little ones nonetheless: adult or violent content, or simply too much time online. The profile-based parental controls help you set up different Internet policies for children of different ages. Watch the video

  1. Some other products carry out all or part of the security analysis in the cloud. In comparison, Synology Router regularly downloads domain/IP blacklists and performs the filtering locally. An optional feature, Google Safe Browsing, runs the first round of security checks locally on the router. If a website fails the checks, this specific URL is then sent to Google for verification. This feature needs to be enabled by users separately.
  2. Available on Synology RT2600ac. An external storage device (USB drive or SD card) is required.
