The new ideal of the “smart home” imagines a Jetsons-esque world in which all of your devices are connected to the internet, communicating with each other and adapting to your preferences to create new age of convenience and instant gratification. We may just be headed in that direction very soon.
No automated home is truly “smart” without an adequate security system to keep malicious hackers from seizing control of its devices. That’s why the CUJO Smart Internet Security Firewall is such a crucial development. For just $224.99, this little device promises to secure all your network-connected peripherals for the rest of your life. Whether you’re considering home automation or you just have an Amazon Echo, you should take network security seriously.
Despite the friendly “face,” CUJO takes no prisoners when it comes to protecting your network. It’s built to safeguard every connected device — be it a computer, router, or a Tickle Me Elmo — against phishing, malware, and untrustworthy interlopers. The easy setup process uses machine learning protocols to identify those devices and automatically establish a firewall on them.
CUJO doesn’t just police your network, it works with you to provide security that fits your needs. The compatible mobile app allows you to monitor all your devices from anywhere, get notifications when threats are detected, and permit access when you add a new device to your network. You’ll also be able to set up parental blocks, access schedules, and time limits that protect your kids’ devices as well. Should you want to roll back those restrictions, you can manually override any blocked devices or content at any time, no questions asked.
The device and lifetime subscription usually cost $249, but today you can get both for just $224.99.
