Now everything in the home seems to have an IP address—which also means it could be susceptible to hackers, viruses and other web-enabled dangers. How do you protect something like your Roku box or Nest Thermostat? Get the Bitdefender BOX.

The Bitdefender BOX is a newly announced hardware product that’s designed to secure the Internet of Things and mobile devices. It can protect all of those pricey products against things like data theft, phishing, spying, botnets, malware, and other online threats.

The actual hardware can take the place of your router or just sit right next to it. According to the antivirus fighters at Bitdefender, the BOX can protect the Nest, Smart TVs, tablets and much more. It also has parental controls and other options through the compatible iOS and Android apps.

Bitdefender plans to start taking pre-orders for the Bitdefender BOX in mid-December. The $199 MSRP includes the hardware and a one-year subscription for the service. After that, expect to pay $99 per year to protect an unlimited number of connected devices.
