Make the Internet a Safer Place for Everyone

Protect Your Privacy and Your Children

  • Attacks Everyday*

  • Attacks a day on Windows, Mac and iOS devices*

  • Attacks everyday on network attached storage (NAS) devices*

  • Teenagers Spent Over

    Hours

    online everyday*

Your family members are exposed to the dangers of internet every single moment they're online. In the U.S., teenagers use the internet more than two hours every day on average. Over 20,000 attacks a day were detected on ASUS routers with AiProtection during 2017 Q3, and over half of them happened on Windows, Mac and Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices where precious data is stored.
Disguised cyber threats can sneak in to steal your private data, or your kids may accidentally encounter inappropriate content during their ever-growing screen time. ASUS AiProtection not only protects your connected devices from compromise, but also your family from inappropriate content and unhealthy internet usage when using their smart devices.

Network Security

Your home network is your bank, your wallet and your everyday life. AiProtection helps keep it protected.

  • Protection against Attacks*

    A step above standard firewalls, the commercial-grade intrusion prevention system (IPS) performs in-depth scans of inbound and outbound internet data to block all common attacks. Thanks to Trend Micro data center on the cloud , this AiProtection feature updates itself whenever a new patch is available, ensuring your protection is always up-to-date.

  • Block Access to Malicious Websites

    Cyber threats often disguise themselves as normal advertisements or download links, so you might unintentionally click malicious websites or download files that compromise your home network. AiProtection uses Trend Micro's cloud database to identify and block known malicious sites, preventing infection even before you click. The protection is more precise than normal DNS-based filtering because it detects and blocks specific URLs rather than generic domain names.

  • Infected Device Detection and Blocking

    If an already-infected device connects to your ASUS router with AiProtection, it will prevent any personal data on the device from being compromised by detecting and blocking that device’s connection with the malicious server. The list of malicious servers stays in sync with Trend Micro’s cloud database, ensuring AiProtection gets the latest intelligence to protect your network.

  • Lifetime Free Subscription

    Some routers only offer three years of protection and some standalone security devices cost hundreds of dollars. ASUS AiProtection has you covered for the life of your product without charging any extra fees.

Parental Controls

Keep your kids safe when they explore the internet. The state-of-the-art parental controls in AiProtection integrate all the management functions you need in one place and the intuitive interface makes it super easy to view and apply security settings to all the devices owned by individual family members.*


  • Internet Activity Dashboard*

    View each family member’s internet activity on a clear graphical dashboard showing the peak time and what kind of content they are viewing. You can group devices that belong to your children to view aggregated data and apply scheduled block times and content filters with just a few taps.

  • Kid-Safe Preset*

    Check the box when editing a device and profile, and the preset automatically applies filters for inappropriate content to all their devices.

  • Schedule Block Time

    Reserve valuable family time or help your children develop responsible behavior by selecting scheduled time periods to block internet access on specific devices.

  • Content Filter*

    Block specific categories of mobile apps and websites, and apply these settings to all devices belonging to individual family members. The advanced filtering integrates Trend Micro’s Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) engine to filter not only by website URL, but also by the internet packets themselves, which means it filters content viewed not only in a web browser, but also within mobile apps on your devices.*

Complete Security for Your Family

24/7 Auto Update

AiProtection stays in sync with Trend Micro’s cloud database to get the latest signatures for the Intrusion Prevention System, Malicious Site Blocking, Infected Device Detection and Blocking, and Content Filter features.

Protected Connections

With WPA2 encryption and TLS protocols, the connections between ASUS Router and your connected devices, as well as between ASUS Router and the external Internet are both private and protected.

URL Filter

In addition to the automatic content filter, you can add a URL blacklist to avoid access to specific websites from your home network.

Firewall

A firewall is like a gatekeeper that checks if the incoming internet packets are valid, which means the incoming data was actually requested and is not from an unknown or malicious source.

Guest Network

All your important files are stored within your home network. Giving out your network password is like giving the key to your home to everyone. The Guest Network feature creates a dedicated and temporary WiFi name and password for your guests, so they can enjoy WiFi access while your network stays protected.
