Your home or shared network could include just one of several devices, connected through your home router or the building services. Depending on the number of connected devices the performance of the network could require additional connections and processing power. In some cases, the HIPSY may be all that is required to handle the level of traffic but where additional throughput capacity, wireless capability and network ports are needed a more robust solution is available with the BIPSY.

While it is common practice to defend against attacks by inspecting traffic at data centres and corporate headquarters, blocking malicious traffic at the branch office is also critical. Deploying router-based threat control at the branch, small business, or home office enables those locations to drop offending traffic as needed, stopping attacks at their point of entry.
