Online Protection now supports Outbound IP Protection and Intrusion Prevention, the latest advancement of Plume Guard features! Previously, Online Protection worked by detecting only malicious DNS based threats. By now protecting devices from connecting to malicious sites using IP addresses (Outbound IP Protection) and DNS based lookups, your home is now more protected than ever!
Additionally, Intrusion Prevention automatically blocks connections from high-risk IP addresses trying to remotely connect to your devices, keeping you and your family safe from online threats.
Another benefit of the IP based protection is that it enhances our Content Access feature by making it possible to manually block specific IP addresses in addition to domains.
Outbound IP Protection and Intrusion Prevention are included when turning on Online Protection if you have a SuperPod connected as the Gateway Pod with firmware 2.4.3 and higher.
