    Hi Guys.

    Was just checking features of my dlink and found that it has the possibility to use following software: http://sentinel.dlink.com/SecurityServices/

    Anyone knows anything about? What AV engine are they using? o_O

    Have not tried it yet, but maby I'll give it a go :thumb:

    [EDIT] Found out that its software that must be installed on the computer - thought it was on the router :p

    That actually sounds like a great idea. Have your security installed on your router so as not to slow down your comp. Is there anything like this for home users. Or is it a stupid idea?

    I think Trend Micro and Netgear had/has something like this. Not sure how it works though.

    It's called Unified threat management (UTM)
    Free solutions for home users and small business:
    Endian
    pfSense
    IPCop
    SmoothWall
    The concept is very simple: upgrade your "el cheapo" home router to a full blown security appliance worth hundreds/housands of dollars:
    - Far better performance.
    - Hardened Linux/BSD.
    - Full SPI firewall.
    - IDS (Snort).
    - Antivirus scanning.
    - Antispam.
    - Content filtering.
    - VPN.
    - Etc.
    In fact it's a great idea, if you understand its limitations and don't become reckless forgetting basic security practices.

    Interesting idea but it seems too 'blackboxish' for me (no pun intended). eBBox's question is the first thing that came to my mind: "Sounds great but what is actually under the covers?".

    I don't think there's any one software vendor out there that consistently performs well covering all the bases (a/v, firewall, antispam, etc)...so having some arbitrary branded software inside the box doesn't sound great to me...I think I'll stick to my own blend thank you very much ;)
