1Technologies That Secure the Home, WiFi and More Debut at CES 2018
The annual Consumer Electronics Show is the place to be to check out the latest in up-and-coming technology. And this year’s CES is no different, with the latest TVs, connected appliances and voice-enabled products on display at the 2018 event. But also finding the CES spotlight this year are security technologies. Multiple vendors, including ADT and Ring, have announced new connected home security devices, while security vendor McAfee used CES 2018 as the venue to announce its new Identity Theft Protection service. Underpinning the connected home and the internet of things (IoT) is pervasive WiFi connectivity, which is also set to get a security boost thanks to the emerging WPA3 WiFi standard.
