In case you did not know, there is also F-Secure sense and Asus routers with Aiprotection (Trend Micro) free with the router, the others are subscription


F-Secure sense > https://sense.f-secure.com/

Asus/Trend AiProtection > https://www.asus.com/support/faq/1012070/

Just gave some examples. Now seems the right time for Avast to join the league and be a little more innovative. ::)

Yes :)

Such router already exists ( from AVG ) but will be available for the USA market first.

Two (Uber)evangelists  ( not me :'( ) got that router with our visit to Avast in Prague.

Hi liubomirwm :)

I don't know when it will be launched ...
But what I do know is that this is important to Avast, as they see the Router as your Network/Internet Frontdoor.
