D-Link ANZ has launched its new D-Fend AC2600 Wi-Fi Router (DIR-2680) designed to enhance security for devices on any home network.

The all-in-one solution powered by McAfee and Intel’s connected home technology offers comprehensive parental control features allowing customised protection for children including blocking of websites and age-inappropriate content, applying Internet curfews, as well as ‘on-demand’ pausing of Internet access.

D-Link ANZ managing director, Graeme Reardon said, “The new D-Link D-Fend Wi-Fi router is one of our most significant products released to date. With a unique set of parental controls, parents can now set profiles for each child to manage the content available to them, as well as have the control to pause Internet access whenever they wish.

“As a father of young children myself, being able to simply hit pause on my phone to bring an end to their latest video game or their YouTubing to simply get them to the dinner table on time, is fantastic. At the same time, knowing that our kids, our sensitive data, and our devices are protected by McAfee from malicious attacks, malware, botware and viruses is incredibly valuable.”

McAfee APAC chief technology officer, Ian Yip said, “At McAfee, we believe it’s important to partner with industry leaders, and that’s why we’ve chosen to partner with D-Link to help drive a security by default mindset towards connected devices.

“D-Link is a leader in connected home solutions, and the D-Fend AC2600 Wi-Fi Router with McAfee’s Secure Home Platform built-in represents a strategic partnership that will allow us to provide simpler and stronger connected home security for Australians.”

The D-Link Wi-Fi Router is now available at JB Hi-Fi and at D-Link Australia online for an RRP of $499.95 and at all authorised D-Link resellers and retailers in New Zealand and D-Link New Zealand online for RRP NZ$599.99.
