According to the press release, the decision to include these more secure chips were chosen based on expert predictions of massive growth in the connected home market. The release details an estimated 20 billion home devices hitting the market by 2019.
ASUS and Trend Micro are hoping that this IoT solution can help successfully secure the router, thus completely stopping any negative outside traffic from reaching connected devices.
