Home Networking Protection

When I saw this blog post, it immediately said it is a must have security device. Nowadays, home network is a given, router is in every metropolitan home.  Protecting home network is not a easy task. With so many home devices that are connected 24×7 to the Internet, patching them and also doing security configuration is professional work. This device from McAfee protects home network by “filtering all DNS and web requests”. 

I think the most important part is filtering DNS requests as this shall stop many malware activties.
