iShield Home

Is your at-home workforce secure and productive?

As companies realise that work-from-home environments will be around for the foreseeable future, they need to ensure that their employees can securely and productively perform their duties from home.

iShield Home is a next-generation firewall that does deep-packet inspection including application level inspection and intrusion prevention/detection by utilising intelligence from outside of the firewall. The firewall is also referred to as a smart access Unified Threat Management (UTM) device that is located at your staff’s home, giving you the ability to remotely control your entire network via the Cloud.

Bandwidth is now a major resource for employees working from home.
