Does Your Whole Home Need Antivirus Now? - WSJ

A different type of home security

"A new type of Internet security product is designed to stand guard over the whole smart home full of gadgets. Rather than counting on antivirus on every device, they scan all the activity in your house for signs of trouble. If you click on a malicious link, or your thermostat starts sending a thousand emails per hour, your sentry will hoist a red flag.

These products are in their infancy, and their promise outweighs their present effectiveness. But they offer a glimpse of how home network security is going to change for all of us. And while they develop, there are steps you can take with existing home routers and security software to stay safe."
