Netgear launches new Nighthawk WiFi router, Insight switches

Wednesday 12 June 2019 | 12:35 CET | News

Netgear announced the availability of the Nighthawk Cybersecurity AC2300 WiFi Router (RS400), a new router designed for homes, small businesses or home offices that includes three years of Netgear Armor powered by Bitdefender. Netgear also introduced GC108P and GC108PP, two Netgear Insight Managed 8-port Gigabit Ethernet High-Power PoE+ Smart Cloud Switches with remote/cloud management available as a 64W (GC108P) or 126W (GC108PP).


The RS400 provides anti-virus, anti-malware, and data protection for an unlimited number of devices on networks including PCs, laptops, mobile devices, IoT and Smart Home. 

Unlike software applications that are installed on laptops or smartphones, the router is designed to provide protection for all the connected devices on end-users' network including vulnerable IoT smart home products. Given that the router directs all incoming and outgoing internet traffic on the network, the router becomes the first line of defense for the connected home. In addition to scanning incoming traffic for security risks, the RS400 also monitors for and can intercept rogue traffic generated from a device, in the event that a device has been hijacked.

Netgear Armor, powered by Bitdefender, identifies and blocks viruses, spyware, ransomware and malicious links to protect families from scams.

The RS400 also includes Circle smart parenting controls so parents will be able to manage the family's internet use, set bedtimes, limit daily internet time for specific websites, apps, as well as filter settings for family members to match their age and interests.

Pricing, availability

The router is now available through authorised Netgear retail partners and other reseller channels, ecommerce sites, and major retailers, at an MSRP of USD 299.99 (USD). Continued use of the Armor cybersecurity beyond the three-year included subscription it will be available for an annual fee of USD 69.99.

GC108P (64W) is priced at USD 114.99 and GC108PP (126W) is offered at USD 149.99.
