Actiontec Earns ICSA Labs First Router Security Certification

ICSA Labs, an independent division of Verizon, has bestowed its first Managed Broadband Home Router Certification on Actiontec Electronics’ family of MI424WR wireless home routers. The program evaluates a router’s effectiveness in identifying safe versus harmful data, then denying access to the harmful stuff. Actiontec’s wireless home routers, a type of broadband home router used to connect computers on a home network to the Internet, feature many options to combat against hackers gaining access to home networks and stealing personal data. The certification program was developed under ICSA Labs’ ISO 9001/IEC 17025 accredited framework, which verifies the organization’s quality-management systems and technical competence.
