ARRIS International plc has unveiled the SURFboard SBG7580-AC cable modem gateway with ARRIS Secure Home Internet by McAfee.

arris 13 july 2017Available exclusively at BestBuy.com, the equipment is a combination gigabit cable modem, Wi-Fi router, Ethernet hub and home Internet security centre. It’s also the first broadband gateway featuring McAfee’s Secure Home Internet.

It features a DOCSIS 3.0 modem, 802.11ac Wi-Fi router and four-port gigabit Ethernet hub in one product, targeting families, avid streamers and downloaders, plus gamers who need a fast and reliable connection. It eliminates monthly modem rental fees from internet providers, which ARRIS said can save as much as $120 a year. It also comes with three years of ARRIS Secure Home Internet by McAfee protection for free.

“The ARRIS SBG7580-AC is the first gateway to incorporate device security into the gateway, the entry point for internet into the home. In doing so, we’ve created a single product that delivers cyber security protection to devices in the home, including unsecured IoT devices,” said Sandy Howe, SVP and GM, Consumer Products Group, ARRIS. “Instead of installing and updating security software on every single connected device, now people can simply connect to protect. ARRIS pioneered gateway technology, and the SBG7580-AC with ARRIS Secure Home Internet by McAfee showcases our 20-plus years of technology communications expertise.”

“We pioneered the digital life protection space where we made it our mission to protect all the devices that our customers use,” added John Giamatteo, EVP, Consumer Business Group, McAfee. “With the integration of Secure Home Internet into the ARRIS gateway, we are delivering on this mission with an industry leader. The best security software is the kind that people actually use, and together with ARRIS, McAfee is making it easier than ever for consumers to protect every connected device in the home.”
