Hackers are increasingly viewing home routers as a means of gaining access to sensitive personal data. To help combat this threat, ICSA Labs, an independent division of Verizon, is offering a new program under which manufacturers can have their broadband home routers certified.

The program, Managed Broadband Home Router Certification, evaluates a router’s effectiveness in identifying safe versus harmful data, and then in denying access to malicious data. Certified broadband home routers (BHRs), which are generally used to connect computers on a home network to the Internet, can offer consumers a higher level of security assurance.

ICSA Labs awarded the first Managed Broadband Home Router Certification to Actiontec’s M1424WR family of wireless home routers, which includes MI424-WR Rev.E and MI424-WR Rev.F.

“While attacks targeted at routers are not a new threat, we are seeing an increase in attacks against broadband home routers,” said Brian Monkman, technology programs manager, ICSA Labs. “This threat is exacerbated by the fact that all too often, consumers assume that these products, which are designed to be configured quickly and easily, have the appropriate safeguards in place. Unfortunately, that is not always the case.”

“It is important that a broadband home router is secure – right out of its box,” said Brian Henrichs, chief business development officer at Actiontec. “Consumers receiving a router—such as an Actiontec managed router—from their service provider that has been tested and certified by ICSA Labs can be confident in the security of their router.”

As BHRs are considered a type of firewall appliance, the router certification program will launch as part of ICSA Labs’ Network Firewall Program, which was established in 1995 and evaluates the effectiveness and security measures of network firewalls.

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.

Visit ICSA Labs’ Managed Broadband Home Router Certification page for more information or to submit a product for testing. Consumers interested in purchasing a certified BHR can visit ICSA Labs’ certified product page to determine whether the BHR is certified.
