Firewalla Adds Gold SE for Affordable, Powerful Protection at High Internet Speeds
Launch celebrates the sixth anniversary of company’s first product launch, Firewalla Red
SAN JOSE, Calif. — June 12, 2023 — Internet service providers are offering speeds so fast that they outpace consumers’ hardware. Gigabit internet is a highly marketed product that is growing more popular as speeds increase. According to Ookla, the median fixed broadband download speed in America was 202.4 megabits per second (mbps) in April, 33% quicker than in April 2022. As the internet of the future evolves, consumers need security devices that can keep up.
Firewalla, a leader in consumer-friendly plug-and-play home firewall devices, has added Firewalla Gold SE to its portfolio to handle future internet speeds at an economical price for home and small business network operators. Firewalla Gold SE is available for pre-sale now at $419 and will tentatively begin shipping in December.
The launch of Firewalla Gold SE coincides with the sixth anniversary of the company’s first product, Firewalla Red. Firewalla has shipped products across several product lines to over 100 countries since the initial launch in 2017.
“The Firewalla community has grown exponentially and we love hearing from users. It’s their requests for an affordable device that can operate at future speeds that inspired the Gold SE,” said Firewalla founder Jerry Chen. “It runs on the same software as the Gold and Gold Plus and makes cybersecurity, parental control, privacy protection, and a better network easy.”
As the world grows more connected, there are more considerations to weigh with network security, whether you’re working from home, protecting a small business, or managing children’s devices. Firewalla Gold SE is designed with two 2.5 gigabit ports for fast wide area network (WAN) and local area network (LAN) capabilities, and two 1 gigabit ports for network segmentation. It is powered by a Quadcore ARM processor with 4 gigabytes of memory and 32 gigabytes of storage and can process packets at 2 gigabits, making it perfect for the internet of the future.
Firewalla Gold SE has three modes that can function as a main router, operate between networks, or augment a network. It can also be paired with the Firewalla WiFi SD to ensure a connection, even if there’s an internet outage.
Firewalla offers powerful home cybersecurity that’s accessible, affordable, and easy to use. Since it was founded in 2015, Firewalla has sold network protection solutions to hundreds of thousands of customers across more than 100 countries. With a team made up of former Cisco engineers who have real-world experience running corporate information security, Firewalla is working to secure the world’s internet. Learn more at Firewalla.com.
