Firewalla Introduces Gold Plus to Operate at Future Internet Speed
As ISPs introduce faster connectivity options, the 2.5 Gbps firewall and router future-proofs home networks
SAN JOSE, Calif. — Internet access is becoming faster and more affordable as technology advances. According to a report by the Fiber Broadband Association, the average download speed experienced by users in the United States has skyrocketed 2,925% since 2009. New innovations are making the internet even faster.
Some internet service providers (ISPs) are now offering speeds that exceed 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps) and users need hardware that can facilitate that modem speed. Firewalla, a leader in consumer-friendly, plug-and-play home firewall devices, has launched Firewalla Gold Plus for pre-sale, a 2.5 Gigabit firewall and router to empower the internet of the future.
“If a router can’t match the speed of an internet connection, users are leaving value and speed on the table,” said Jerry Chen, founder of Firewalla. “Firewalla Gold Plus is perfect for the fast internet of the future and helps secure home networks and small businesses. We’re seeing many people upgrade their internet service and Firewalla Gold Plus can meet those speeds, future-proof their network architecture, and is compatible with WiFi 6E routers.”
Small businesses that have several employees in an office are more likely to eat up bandwidth than a home network, so upgrading to Gig-speed internet and introducing Firewalla Gold Plus would increase connectivity speed and reduce latency.
Firewalla Gold Plus runs on the Firewalla Security Stack, which has protected networks in more than 100 countries. The device can create secondary firewalls within your network through “network segmentation” where each segment can be managed with dynamic and static policies.
Among the benefits of Firewalla Gold Plus are:
- Four 2.5 Gbps ethernet interfaces
- 4 GB RAM
- 5 Gigabits deep packet inspection hardware
- Protects your devices from cyberattacks
- Monitor and control internet usage, including dynamic content filtering
- No monthly fees
Firewalla Gold Plus is available for pre-order at Firewalla.com for $569 USD, and will begin shipping in January 2023. Firewalla products have historically been offered at a significant discount during the pre-order period. The price of Firewalla Gold Plus will increase closer to the shipping period.
