added Sep 14, 2011 - Cyberoam
In an exciting launch, network security player Cyberoam has brought in a first-of-its-kind product called ‘NetGenie’ to address frequent concerns that parents and small office-home office owners have regarding Internet usage at their homes and small office premises.
The revolutionary NetGenie appliances offer age-wise, easy parental controls that enable parents to ensure kids are protected from harmful Internet content like pornography and violence. Age-wise parental controls simplify the Internet controls to a single click for parents, therefore providing a simple and safe end-user experience. Small offices can keep their employees away from spending time on non-productive sites using NetGenie’s Internet controls that provide different levels of Internet access. At the click of a mouse, home and small office users now have the power 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.
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, saving end users on costs and maintenance of separate solutions. NetGenie’s user-wise Internet activity reports addresses the discomfort of most parents who need to physically monitor kids’ Internet activities, eliminating the need to intrude kids’ 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. For more information, you can visit www.netgenie.net.
Speaking at the launch, Mr. Hemal Patel, CEO, Elitecore Technologies, “NetGenie has been conceptualized as a friend and guide for families and small offices that does many things and makes Internet fun for the users. It will serve you everything you ever wished for, regarding the online safety of your kids and employees without restricting their creative freedom in any way. Our global consumer survey presents a strong case for the need for 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, thereby reinforcing the need for more efficient parental controls. 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.”
Further corroborating the need for a solution like NetGenie in offices, Hemal added, “There is a concern among Small Office owners about employees visiting unproductive websites and applications and the lack of keeping a tab on their online activities. NetGenie for SOHO offers Internet Controls with single-click Internet restriction levels along with real-time reporting on online activities as well as security of the network. NetGenie is an easy plug-n-play solution with a vibrant and colorful user-interface.”
