Firewalla Purple SE Brings Comprehensive And Affordable Cybersecurity To Home and Small Business Networks
Latest device was built with underserved, vulnerable market in mind
SAN JOSE, Calif. — Nov. 21, 2022 — In a world increasingly connected through mobile phones, smart appliances, and connected devices, cybersecurity concerns remain at the forefront of conversation, even for the little guy.
According to a recent IPSOS poll, 84% of consumers are concerned about their online safety, however, only 63% say they actually check the security settings of their online accounts on a regular basis. And Accenture’s Cost of Cybercrime Study shows 43% of attacks target small businesses, but only 14% are prepared to defend themselves.
Firewalla, a leader in consumer-friendly plug-and-play home firewall devices, launched Firewalla Purple SE to offer consumers and small businesses an affordable cybersecurity solution that doesn’t need extensive configurations. Like Firewalla Purple, Purple SE brings high-level protection to your fingertips and protects the devices on your network from cyberattacks, safeguards your data, shares advanced insights into your network, and blocks unwanted ads.
“Most cybersecurity tools are aimed at big businesses with big budgets. We don’t want families and small businesses to get priced out of protecting their networks,” said Firewalla founder Jerry Chen. “Firewalla Purple SE is an affordable option that offers control and peace of mind that devices are secure and content can be controlled without needing an IT team.”
Ofcom reports seven in 10 parents who have children under the age of 16 are concerned about the content their children see online. Firewalla Purple SE gives parents visibility and control, including automatically blocking access to malicious and adult content. It has many of the same capabilities as the Firewalla Purple, including 24/7 network monitoring, and automatic alerts for malicious activities and vulnerabilities. Its built-in virtual private network (VPN) server gives an extra layer of protection and it runs on the Firewalla Security Stack.
The Firewalla Purple SE has two ports and can easily plug into a router for internet access. It operates at 500 megabits per second (mbps). It’s available for pre-sale purchase on Nov. 21 at $219 USD. Firewalla anticipates shipping Purple SE in January 2023.
