Choosing a Router/Gateway with Strong Security Software is Most Popular Action to Prevent Unauthorized Access to Devices
DALLAS, Oct. 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Research from Parks Associates shows that as households adopt more smart home devices, owners rely more and more on a router/gateway with strong security software to prevent unauthorized access and protect their privacy. One-third of households with 1-4 smart home devices have adopted this method, increasing to 50% of households once they adopt 10 or more devices.
