Intego Mac Podcast, Episode 57: The Advantages of Using a VPN, with CyberGhost

We’ve often stressed how important it is to use a VPN. Today we welcome Andra Zaharia from Intego’s partner company CyberGhost to discuss why we all need a VPN at times.

Check out the latest episode of The Intego Mac Podcast, which I co-host with Josh Long. We talk about Macs and iOS devices, and how to keep them secure.

  1. Good episode. How about doing a future episode on smart home security? Which brand of devices (WeMo, Logitech, etc) makes the most secure products, and why? Which eco-system (Google Home, Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit) is most secure, and why? I find it difficult to obtain reliable information on this topic, beyond the standard marketing phrases like “we use 256-bit encryption.”

    And here’s a specific question. Let’s say I use HomeKit, but purchase a smart light switch that works with HomeKit, Google and Alexa. Even if the switch is secure when used with HomeKit, does the fact that it supports Google Home and Amazon open up new attack vectors into my home router?

    I bet few users of smart home technology understand the security risks behind those products. You and your experts could really help here.

    Thx

    • That’s a great idea. We will look into this. One problem is that this area is so fragmented, so it’s hard to know all the variables, but at a minimum we’ll discuss HomeKit and how that works.
