To address the growing need for
all-inclusive security solutions within the reach of households and
small office, Cyberoam, a division of Elitecore Technologies, has
brought in ‘NetGenie’, a product that has been entirely
developed in India.

The product is available in two
different avatars — as NetGenie Wireless router with family
protection for homes and as NetGenie Unified Threat Management
appliances for small offices. NetGenie – Home will offer a
single-click solution for parents to implement age-wise, easy
parental controls ensuring children are protected from harmful
Internet content like pornography and violence. In addition, small
offices can put a complete stop to their employees spending time on
non-productive sites using NetGenie’s Internet controls which allow
differing levels of Internet access.

NetGenie empowers both home and small
office users to decide how much Internet freedom they want to give to
different users in their network across an entire range of devices
such as desktops, laptops, smartphones, iPads etc. NetGenie also
allows schedule-based Internet access over various website categories
and applications for different users. NetGenie’s
security features like firewall, Intrusion Prevention System and
in-built Anti-Virus offer strong Internet security the moment the
appliance is turned on. This also
obviates the need to
separately purchase and deploy these solutions, saving users the
hassle in configuring them each and everytime for newly arriving
computing devices. For small offices, there is the added benefit of
an in-built IPSec VPN feature which allows secure remote access to
vendor offices or a central office.

Speaking
at
the launch,
Hemal Patel, CEO,
Elitecore
Technologies
, NetGenie
is a pioneering solution for
families and small office
users that aims to enable safe Internet usage, usher in productivity
and offer advanced threat protection. Our global consumer survey
presents a strong case for the need of such a product among home
users: parents are increasingly being concerned about kids having
unfiltered access to unsafe Internet content, befriending strangers
online, unlimited social networking, chat and online gaming sessions
etc.
Keeping all this in mind and the
current threat landscape, we at Cyberoam wanted to offer our
consumers a permanent and easy solution for all their cyber worries.”

A clear advantage of
NetGenie is the fact that it integrates Wi-Fi access point, security,
advanced Internet controls, 3G readiness, and more in a single
appliance, helping end users save costs by avoiding maintenance of
separate solutions. NetGenie’s user-wise Internet activity reports
addresses the discomfort of most parents who need to physically
monitor Internet activities of their children, eliminating the need
to intrude on their Internet sessions. NetGenie protects all
computing devices in the network like desktops, laptops, tablets,
smartphones, and more, from Internet threats including viruses,
intruders and hackers. The product will be available across the globe
through Cyberoam partners and going forward at retail outlets in
different countries.
