Traditional anti-virus protects only at the device level and doesn’t usually cover all your Internet connected devices like video cameras, Smart TVs, home automation systems, video doorbells, or any other “smart” devices in your home. Because ProtectIQ works at the network level in your home, it has complete visibility into all malicious traffic trying to make its way in, out, and across your network regardless of the device. We do recommend keeping anti-virus software as an add-on to ProtectIQ as it can help clean up any systems that are infected.
