article imageReview: The new Gryphon smart WiFi router could protect your kids Special

By Claudio Buttice     Nov 18, 2016 in Technology
Gryphon is an innovative home WiFi router that protects children from accessing inappropriate content by filtering it, and tracks all the devices connected at the entry point with its integrated Kaspersky malware blocking agent.
Internet security has always been a big problem for everyone who is not tech-savvy enough to set up a complex array of effective countermeasures to every potential attempted invasion. Recently, however, even the most knowledgeable IT had to face a new threat: the Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Smart home devices could be, in fact, easily accessed and weaponised with relatively simple malicious software. Even the most sophisticated anti-virus or malware blocking agent cannot stop them from doing harm unless additional software or apps are installed on each connected device.
Gryphon could finally provide an answer to this issue by stopping any suspicious traffic directly at its point of access. By using machine learning to track the various unique fingerprints of each connected device, the smart router can recognize any change and quarantine it if necessary. All the malware is monitored thanks to a full integration with the Kaspersky's thread database, one of the top internet security software suites available.
Even more interesting, the Gryphon router also has an inbuilt content-filtering feature that will protect your kids from accessing unwanted or inappropriate content. Parents can choose which websites can be accessed, restrict internet access during specific hours of the day or night, and customize these limits for each child. Kids can send a request to their parents' phones to get more time or access to a given website (which are evaluated via a Crowd Ranking rating) in real-time. The device's parental control and software updates are free of charge and require no monthly or annual fee.
John Wu, co-Founder and CEO of Gryphon Online Safety, Inc. is enthusiastic about the perspectives of their upcoming product. "We are very excited about our unique machine learning based intrusion detection for IoT devices. IoT security vulnerability is a silent threat has been growing for the last decade. Gryphon can help protect against cyber attacks by preventing your IoT devices from being hacked in the first place. It will protect your devices right at the entry point, your router."
The company recently reached its goal of $50,000 on its Kickstarter campaign, and plans to release the router to the market in June 2017.
