For the longest time, computers needed to have antivirus program installed to protect them against the virus and other nasty programs. Mobile phones also now need antivirus apps. However, Bitdefender BOX removes the need for these programs. The Bitdefender BOX is hardware that connects to your internet network, which allows it to protect everything in your house that uses the internet.
The Bitdefender BOX is priced at $199 and has a free one year of Bitdefender service. After the first year, the protection service is $99 per year for an unlimited amount of devices.
Inside of the Bitdefender BOX packaging is an Ethernet cable, a USB cable, and a converter for standard power outlets. The Bitdefender BOX needs so little power that you could run it with a portable USB battery. The USB cable can also be used to power the box using another router or a computer.
You will need to download the app from Google Play Store or the App Store. At the moment, there is no app for the Windows Phone. You will need a My BitDefender account to access the Box and any other products that you have.
The Bitdefender BOX can function as a stand-alone router, which makes it easy to connect devices without having to update passwords on all your devices. The problem is that the Bitdefender BOX is not powerful enough to be a router.
The Bitdefender BOX is very small and has a nice design. The outer casing looks like a white Apple TV box. There is a blue LED light that faces downwards to show that the device is on.
The major advantage of the Bitdefender BOX is that it protects an unlimited number of devices that are on your network. You can manage your devices on the go with the app. The built-in private line protects all your devices, even when they are not connected to your network. The Bitdefender BOX can be added to any existing wireless network with an easy setup.
While it can be used as a stand-alone router, it is simply not powerful enough to do so. It can be hard to figure out what each device is in the network browser. There is no app for the Windows Phone, and there is no web-based interface, meaning that you need to have a device that runs Android, or iOS. The price could be a con since you pay $199 upfront and $99 every year after that.
The Bitdefender BOX is a huge shift in the consumer security industry. This small piece of hardware can protect all the devices that are on your network. It is a great piece of hardware, considering that it’s the first one of this type of device.
