LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fortress Cyber Security announced today that its Fortress™ UTM, the first residential unified threat management (UTM) appliance with a large touch screen for easy set up and threat detection/notification, can now deliver Total Life Security through integration with home security and identity theft protection providers.
According to the new 2017 Identity Fraud Study from Javelin Strategy & Research, 15.4 million Americans were hit by identity fraud in 2016.1 The potential risk to consumer cyber and personal security only grows much larger as more and more consumers use their smartphones to tap into their home security systems.
Recognizing this trend, Fortress UTM software now integrates with home security vendors and financial / credit reporting agencies. This Total Life Security solution ensures consumers can track all components of their security needs via a single device with a single help line for questions about any aspect of life security.
Fortress UTM debuted in January as an all-inclusive home security product able to secure computers, smart devices and Internet of Things (IoT) systems. The solution provides intrusion detection and prevention, firewall and anti-virus for all Wi-Fi, IoT and Ethernet-attached systems, along with attacker behavior detection and device vulnerability assessments.
The appliance comes with CyberGuard™ 24/7 service, the security industry’s first consumer-focused security operations center providing instantaneous incident response and mitigation services.
“In this one-touch, everything connected, mobile era, consumers have more risks around their devices, home security systems and personal data than ever before, so it’s difficult to keep track of all the potential gaps,” said Peter Kassabov, chairman of Fortress Cyber Security. “As we continue to develop our Fortress UTM, we’re recognizing that consumers need a Total Life Security solution that can ensure all of their data and potential hacker vectors are protected. The Fortress UTM has the memory and CPU horsepower necessary to do all of this through one device.”
The Fortress UTM appliance is powered by an ARM processor from NXP Semiconductor and features dual-band 3/3 802.11ac Wi-Fi, full router capabilities and 5 Gigabit-Ethernet ports.
The Fortress UTM was designed for residential users who need enterprise-grade protection for personal, business and smart home devices. Fortress is currently seeking partnerships with “last mile” service providers, home security providers, high-end home builders and financial reporting agencies.
