F-Secure Brings "F-Secure Sense" to Market to Protect Your IoT

The incredibly smart people at F-Secure have developed a way to help us keep all of our devices… and hence our lives, more secure than ever before.
As technology evolves, we are now seeing more and more Internet connected devices.  These devices such as lights, thermostats, and appliances are part of the “Internet of Things” often abbreviated IoT.  If a device is connected, it can be hacked.  This means that security cameras and even baby monitors can be potentially attacked and taken over by bad guys.
To head off all of these potential problems, F-Secure has created the Sense.  This device works as a router that sits between all of your devices and the Internet.  Normally we’d call this type of device a Firewall, but the Sense functions as much, much more.  The Sense provides:
  • Outside connection blocking
  • Protects devcies when outside your home network
  • WiFi router
  • Browsing protection
  • Antivirus
  • Anti-bot
  • Anti-tracking
  • Behavior-based blocking
  • Device discovery
  • Banking protection (on Windows)
  • IoT security
  • Single app to monitor all connected devices at home
  • Always up to date, secure router
  • Advanced parental controls
  • IoT device reputation based protection
  • Anonymous surfing with VPN
  • Guest WiFi protection

You can purchase it for $199.  For all the details & ordering info, go to the site.
