Date: 2018-05-16   Author: Dhananjay Punekar  Category: #technology

American software giant Symantec Corporation has apparently declared that it will introduce the Norton Wi-Fi core router, Norton’s first hardware product, in Australia in the second half of this year. As per reliable sources, the product will be made available to the end-users at a price of USD 399. Incidentally, the Granite Grey version of the Norton core router can be pre-ordered currently and it will come bundled with Norton’s core security plus package through a 1-year subscription.

As per reports, Mark Gorrie from Norton displayed the equipment at CeBIT Australia. During the exhibition, he announced the launch of the new product and further stated that product security is not sufficient for connecting homes during the current times. He was of the view that even the humblest of the connected equipment present inside homes are vulnerable to hacker attacks. The most confidential personal & financial data is likely to be accessed by hackers, he says

A key official at Norton believes that the firm has extended its online safety product portfolio for including a secured, high-performing, wireless home router device that will assist the product users in Australia to regain control over their personal data. Sources cite that the 4 X 4 AC26000 MU-MIMO core router includes 1.7 giga hertz dual-core CPU, 1 GB of RAM along with 4 GB of flash memory.

It has been anticipated that Norton has developed the router for safety purposes and the device is likely to be controlled by a smartphone app. Through the app interface, the end-users in Australia will be able to control as well as prioritize device connectivity and will be able to view a security scoreboard displaying their home network status. The firm boasts that the new product’s internal antenna design has the ability to match the performance of the best external antenna-based routers.
