Brad and I have a lot of connected devices. In addition to our phones and laptops, we also have connected devices to monitor and control aspects of our home. Individual devices can be protected through anti-virus software; but not all the devices on your network can have software installed – especially Internet of Things (IoT) devices such as garage door openers, door sensors, etc. This is why it is important to have network-wide security through a firewall.
You make sure to protect your home, the doors are locked, windows closed, and maybe even an alarm system set; but do you protect your network? Protecting your electrical home is just as important as your physical home, and thanks to CUJO, this protection can be easily provided. Ensuring that the websites you visit are safe (and appropriate for those with kids) is important to keep devices and information on your network secure.
The Parental Control features of the CUJO device goes further than just monitoring the content on visited websites. It can also set time limits, monitor social media, and even pause the internet. Brad has threatened to turn off my Facebook during the evenings, *NOT FUNNY BRAD….*.
The CUJO device simply plugs into the router and provides security for your entire network. All the settings can easily be controlled through an App on your phone. As you can see from the screenshot below, we have a lot of connected devices.
CUJO also lets you know about potential threats to your network. As you can see below, it reported two threats the day we plugged it in, this shows how important it is to be diligent with network security.
