Home Gateway supports blazing fast 2Gbps or 1Gbps broadband service

Starting in mid-October, Home Gateway will be available for both 1Gbps or 2Gbps home broadband users. New and upgrading subscribers of designated services will enjoy the same all-in-one features like enterprise-level network security, parental control, home Wi-Fi, telephone functionalities, 24/7 remote troubleshooting and more.

Through HKBN's collaboration with Trend Micro, a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, Home Gateway delivers a new paradigm in protection for all devices connected to the home network via "HKBN HomeGuard - Network Security" and provides added peace of mind with "HKBN HomeGuard - Parental Control", a feature designed to help parents flexibly manage and monitor a child's online activities.

Enterprise-level network security

"HKBN HomeGuard - Network Security" detects, analyses, and protects against external attacks and malicious network activities, blocks unsafe websites and files. The advanced deep pack inspection (DPI) technology offers 3-tier protection against common attacks and network intrusions for all devices connected to Home Gateway. To guard against the latest cyberattacks, Trend Micro regularly updates its system with the latest list of dangerous websites and malware.

Matthew Chan, Business Director of Trend Micro Hong Kong and Macau, said, "When it comes to devices connected at home, users often overlook issues of network security. Through our review of the HKBN Home Gateway service*, data reveals that the typical household has 10 devices connected to their home network. Our service intercepted a monthly average of 270 cyberattacks per household. It's also worth noting that 1 out of every 3 IoT devices were targeted by cyberattacks. This distressing trend means we must all be vigilant about cybersecurity, especially for IoT tech. By effectively blocking intrusions at the home network level, consumers and their devices will be better protected from unwelcome cyberattacks."

Parental Control: easy management of a child's online activities

More than ever, parents are increasingly concerned about their children's Internet activities -- like spending too much time online, or the risks of harmful websites or even predatory interactions. Through "HKBN HomeGuard - Parental Control", parents can easily manage and restrict a child's Internet activity such as blocking access to specific categories of websites, setting time limits for going online, and much more. Even while parents are away from home, they can stay informed about a child's Internet activities thanks to automated notifications and other reporting features sent via mobile app.
