    That's not the same thing as claiming that it's stupid. Yes, business-class services will provide better protection, however It's still better security than not having these at all.

    I've seen AiProtection actually do something useful personally (I had a RDesktop forwarded for a while on my router for a particular project). AiProtection blocked and reported a number of brute-force attempts targeting the RDesktop protocol specifically.

    That's right. It's better than not having something. But I don't trust them. Endpoint firewall does same job to block the Brute-force attack. Some devices block them automatically if there are 3 or more login attempts even if there is no specific firewall system for example. I understand your opinion. But my opinion is different from yours. I think we have a different point of view. They collect some data from routers to analyze or other purpose.
    There is another opinion about it. It does make sense.

    Except physical security will now hang it's hat on financial security. When was the last time one's router stopped working once the money ran out? Really, why can't the community do some of this, since an attack on one should be an attack on all?
