Global statistics reveal thirty-four percent of Internet users have experienced unwanted exposure to pornographic content through ads, pop-ups, misdirected links or emails. Another Virtual Parenting report confirms that children’s unsupervised Internet access is posing additional concerns for parents as online threats to children proliferate. NetGenie VDSL2/ADSL2+ appliances for Home 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, allowing parents to manage and control Internet access to sites and apps like Facebook, skype, gmail, and more, for safe online experience.
For small and home office users, statistics report almost 70 percent of their bandwidth is consumed by non-productive pursuits like viewing online videos, audio streaming, and movie downloads. Facebook occupies 41%, LinkedIn 37% and Amazon 25% of employees’ office time in unproductive Internet surfing. This is where NetGenie VDSL2/ADSL2+ appliances with advanced Internet controls and different Internet access levels help manage employees’ access to various sites and applications like social sites, job portals, instant messengers, and bit torrent, across an entire range of devices.
NetGenie’s security features like firewall and Intrusion Prevention System protect desktops, laptops, tablets, smartphones from Internet threats like hackers, bots and intruders, the moment the appliance is turned on. This also obviates the need to separately purchase these solutions and saves the hassle of configuring them every time they buy a new device. An in-built IPSec VPN feature in NetGenie SOHO offers secure remote access to vendor offices or a central office. NetGenie integrates Wi-Fi access points, security features, Internet controls, 3G Ready support, and more, in a single appliance, saving users on cost and maintenance of separate solutions. NetGenie’s user-wise Internet activity reports allow parents/employers to monitor users’ online activities without the need of remaining physically present around them.
Says Mr. Abhilash Sonwane, Senior VP, Cyberoam Technologies, “NetGenie is a comprehensive solution that keeps families protected and stress-free over children going online and enables small businesses to remain productive, secure and profitable. It supports latest broadband technologies like VDSL2 and ADSL2+ as well as Cable Internet and 3G USB modem Internet connectivity. This means, if users move from one connectivity type to another, they need not worry about replacing their NetGenie appliance.” He added, “NetGenie is easy to use with a vibrant and colorful user-interface. For multiple devices connected to home and small businesses, NetGenie offers a fun experience.”
