D-Link updates the COVR-2202 mesh WiFi system

By

Home WiFi mesh networking gets a security boost with integrated McAfee 'Secure Home Platform.'

We wrote of the launch of the COVR 2202 model in September 2018 and published a review later that month.

Now, the product has been upgraded.

According to D-Link, "The McAfee Secure Home Platform provides automatic, comprehensive protection for all connected devices at the Router level, so that consumers can feel safe and protected from cyber threats. The Secure Home Platform uses McAfee's Global Threat Intelligence database, which features real-time, adaptable machine learning that protects by detecting and preventing malicious connections and attacks, providing a safer online experience for consumers."

Further, the provided protection permits the installation of McAfee anti-virus software on mobile devices for use outside the home. Thus, the COVR units will act as an anti-virus staging server for local equipment.

The product also includes a set of parental control features to manage kids' on-line activities.

Additionally, the device supports tri-band communication rather than the dual-band mode of the earlier system.

COVR-2202 with McAfee protection is available for purchase now from www.dlink.com.au (RRP AUD$499.95), www.dlink.co.nz (RRP NZ$549.99) and all authorised D-Link distributors and resellers across Australia and New Zealand.

A review unit has been requested. Expect our thoughts in a couple of weeks.
