SUWANEE, Ga. -- ARRIS International plc (NASDAQ:ARRS) today launched the ARRIS SURFboard SBG7580-AC cable modem gateway with ARRIS Secure Home Internet by McAfee exclusively at BestBuy.com. A combination gigabit cable modem, Wi-Fi router, Ethernet hub and home internet security center, the SBG7580-AC gateway is fast, secure, easy-to-use and eliminates monthly rental fees. As the first broadband gateway featuring McAfee’s Secure Home Internet, the SBG7580-AC moves the security burden off your individual connected devices and onto your home internet’s first point of entry for easier and better protection.

Cyberattacks in the connected home are a growing consumer concern. A recent McAfee study** revealed that 81 percent of consumers think it’s important that their online identity and internet-connected devices are secure. As consumers install increasing numbers of connected devices into their home, savvy cybercriminals have morphed their focus to those new devices, knowing that many consumers fail to take the proper security precautions to protect themselves. Today, any device that connects to the internet is a potential target if not properly secured. This is why ARRIS partnered with McAfee, a leading independent cybersecurity company, to enable best-in-class security at the point where data flows in and out of the home.

Product Highlights

  • Ultimate Performance: Capable of blazing-fast gigabit speeds, the SBG7580-AC features a DOCSIS 3.0 modem, 802.11ac Wi-Fi router and 4-port gigabit Ethernet hub in one product, making it ideal for whole families, avid streamers and downloaders, plus gamers who need a fast and reliable connection.
  • Connect and Protect – One Product and Protection For Your Devices: The SBG7580-AC has ARRIS Secure Home Internet by McAfee protection built right into the gateway, which means no additional software to install. As the entry point for the internet into the home, the SBG7580-AC can protect the devices connected to your network, by helping to stop malware, phishing, and more from reaching a connected device***, including your internet-connected appliances and products like smart thermostats, speakers and cameras.
  • Easy to Use, More Control for Parents: According to a recent study from McAfee, 80 percent of parents are concerned with their children’s online interactions. Thankfully, with the SBG7580-AC with ARRIS Secure Home Internet by McAfee®, it’s never been easier or simpler to help protect your whole family from potential online threats.With automatic device discovery and profiling, there’s minimal setup and no additional software installation required.The SBG7580-AC also offers comprehensive parental controls, allowing consumers to set custom access and controls by user and device profile, block children from accessing inappropriate content and pause internet access for a specific device or the whole network.
  • Savings: The SBG7580-AC eliminates monthly modem rental fees from internet providers, which can save as much as $120 a year. It also comes with three years of ARRIS Secure Home Internet by McAfee protection for free, an approximate $240**** savings.
  • Take Your Security with You: McAfee security doesn’t end with your gateway. To extend the security benefits beyond your home network, all owners receive McAfee LiveSafe™ software, which provides antivirus, identity and privacy protection, free for 90 days. That means your PCs, Macs, smartphones and tablets stay protected with McAfee software whether you’re at home or away. Learn more here.

    “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 cybersecurity protection to devices in the home, including unsecured IoT devices,” said Sandy Howe, SVP and GM, Consumer Products Group at 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+ years of technology communications expertise.”

    Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

    During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

    She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
