NordVPN has partnered with Asus, a global technology manufacturer, to introduce the first routers with in-built VPN integration, taking a step forward for better cybersecurity and privacy for internet users.

The Asus RT-AX57 Go is the first router in the VPN-integrated router series. Its compact size ensures portability and includes tri-mode connectivity, which makes it ideal for travel, work, and home use. The Asus GT-AX11000 Pro is a router designed for gamers who like to keep multiple devices connected while demanding high-end performance in games.

Both routers have inbuilt AiProtection and NordVPN. The VPN service can be set up by entering subscription credentials on the self-service page.

“Privacy and security are our highest priority no matter where users are and what devices they are using. We want to increase our contribution to building a better internet by enabling our customers to easily set up VPN services on their routers to protect a full network of their devices,” the head of product strategy at NordVPN, Vykintas Maknickas, told Candid.Technology.
