How home Wi-Fi networks in Asia-Pacific are being Protected

Asia-Pacific as a region is spanned across vastness of emerging and developed economies, which includes some of the most technologically-advanced countries in the world. A greater proximity to technologies in the field of manufacturing and computing encourages people living in this region to be well-equipped with the basic amenities that help them keep up with the advancing world surrounding them. The ever-changing face of technology in Asian countries such as South Korea, China, Japan and India attests that fact that residents of these nations will continue to strive for being the most tech-savvy demographic in the world. And, facilitating a robust data transference through internet connectivity becomes an elementary step towards retaining technological prowess.

The access to internet in the residential sector of Asia-Pacific region is delivered majorly through broadband or wired connections, but the need for connecting to multiple users in a house prompts the setting up of a home Wi-Fi system. The brimming population in Asian countries further necessitates the adoption of a home Wi-Fi network for seamless internet connectivity. Nevertheless, securing such Wi-Fi networks continues to be a major concern for users as well as service providers in Asia-Pacific. There are some prominent practices exhibited in the home Wi-Fi security solutions market of Asia-Pacific, which can be considered seminal for worldwide adoption.

Freeing Routers for Ubiquitous Bugs

Consumer base for home Wi-Fi networks in Asia-Pacific is likely to remain larger than almost any other region in the world. Proliferation of technology in the lives of its residents compels the region’s regulatory bodies and governing authorities to improve security of home Wi-Fi networks. Wi-Fi routers and modem are being manufactured at a rampant pace in order to meet the demand for home Wi-Fi networks in the region. In 2016, over 45% of Asia-Pacific’s home Wi-Fi security solutions market value was accounted by sales of Wi-Fi routers, according to Future Market Insights. Likewise, budding as well as established IT security service providers are catering to this surging demand by bringing advanced home Wi-Fi security solutions in the market. Eliminating the threats of security breach at the source seems to be quite a feasible solution for home Wi-Fi security, which is why manufacturers of Wi-Fi routers and modems are developing software that can detect and decimate technical or hardware bugs emanating from such Wi-Fi devices.

Real-Time Version Upgrading for Security Software

Cyber-security in Asia-Pacific needs to be curbed before hackers maximize from the existing vulnerabilities of private and public internet networks. Households in the region, equipped with home Wi-Fi network, are treading along with this preventive measure by being updated on network security software. Since every networking security solution can be bifurcated into hardware and software, companies participating in Asia-Pacific’s home Wi-Fi security solution market are extending their measures to fuel the strength of firewall of such software. Companies offering home Wi-Fi security in the region are upgrading their software versions, which ultimately leads to fixing security bugs on a regular basis. It has been projected that higher use of advanced analytics and the availability of “homework” mode is slated to propel software revenues in Asia-Pacific’s home Wi-Fi security solutions market through 2026.
