There is a major issue with today’s home networks, a complete lack of control. Most networking vendors and service providers assume that you don’t care what happens on your network as long as it works. But given the number of security threats that exist how can you not care? Recent security vulnerabilities such as KRACK prove how serious these threats actually are. If you're happy to just connect to the Internet and that it works most of the time then that’s fine. But if you want to have complete control of your data and know exactly where it's going then your current home router is not going to give you that. You need to look at a Software Defined Networking solution.
The concept of SDN is actually quite simple, it lets you take back control of your network from your switch or router. You can have full control and visibility of every packet, every byte of data, that goes through your network. Up until recently this type of technology was only available for data centres and enterprise networks and only using extremely expensive hardware. But thats no longer the case and now you can use it to protect and automate your own home network. Grab a copy of the 5 Ways SDN can Protect and Enhance your Home Network guide and learn how this amazing technology can be used in your home network.
