ASUS has announced that four WiFi 6 routers and one mesh WiFi system have received the highest rating attainable under Singapore’s Cybersecurity Labeling Scheme, Level 4.
TUF Gaming AX5400, TUF Gaming AX3000, RT-AX82U, and RT-AX58U are the four ASUS routers, and the mesh system is the ASUS ZenWiFi XD6, which consists of two AX5400 WiFi 6 routers.
The ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 and ASUS RT-AX88U received the Cybersecurity Labelling Scheme badge in 2021, bringing the total number of registered ASUS networking products to seven within a year.
Singapore’s Cyber Security Agency (CSA) introduced the Cybersecurity Labeling Scheme (CLS) to rate consumer smart gadgets based on particular levels of cybersecurity safeguards.
This is the first project of its sort in the Asia-Pacific area, and items with CLS Level 3 and above are also recognised as having passed the cybersecurity standards of the Transport and Communications Agency of Finland (Traficom).
At Level 1, the product satisfies basic security standards such as providing software updates and assuring unique default passwords. At Level 2, the product has also been built using Security-by-Design techniques such as threat risk assessment, critical design review, and acceptance testing.
At Level 3, the product has also had software binaries evaluated by approved third-party test labs. In addition, at Level 4, the product has passed structured penetration tests by recognised third-party testing labs.
How do ASUS routers protect their users?
Most ASUS routers and WiFi mesh systems contain Trend Micro-powered ASUS AiProtection Pro technology, as well as comprehensive network security solutions.
AiProtection Pro offers free enterprise-grade network security that includes privacy protection for the life of the router, comprehensive parental controls, and IoT security from the router to every connected device. Unlike traditional DNS-based filtering, the constantly updated cloud database aids in virus prevention even before a user clicks or taps on a link.
ASUS Safe Browsing improves the online experience for families, coworkers, and individual users. ASUS routers use this technology to assist screen dangerous websites and other harmful content, resulting in better browsing for everyone.
Furthermore, ASUS routers with Instant Guard technology create a secure data tunnel over a public WiFi connection using virtual private network (VPN) technology. This full VPN function allows you to connect to your home or business network from anywhere in the world.
