In 2014 CTS added a new product range to its Internet Safety range. In our opinion as IT Gurus you can’t get better than this for protecting your family.
How does this protect my family?
NetGenie is a wireless router that has an active firewall that is updated live via the cloud but it’s more than just a firewall!
As you can see from the picture above, each user has an account, so this system isn’t a blanket policy provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) that treats everyone in the house the same, this system is age sensitive.
Not only is this system age sensitive, but it ensures that your internet savvy children can’t bypass it by using their PlayStation or X Box to browse undesirable internet pages or set up a proxy that bypasses the ISP protection. It’s simple, they have to log in using their username and password to access the Internet; therefore the age appropriate rules of NetGenie apply protecting your children, not just from inappropriate content, but from undesirable applications, malware and viruses from hackers, groomers and paedophiles.
How does it work?
NetGenie replaces your router (the box that connects your house to the Internet), it performs all the duties of your existing router as well as its special set of functions:
Age-Wise Parental Controls
Block harmful internet content intelligently for different family members. Each members has their own profile which is assigned to all of their devices such as laptops, phones, consoles etc. This then lets you manage what sites they can get on very easily with the in built white and black lists for different age groups (pre-configured but you can customise it), control the time they’re allowed on sites and block certain categories of websites incredibly easily from their list of over 70 different types.
Protection From Bots & Hackers
Protect all of your devices such as desktop, laptops, handheld devices like mobile phones and tablets, gaming consoles and even Smart TV’s from everything malicious on the web. The built in firewall and the Intrusion Detection System block access from anyone trying to access your network maliciously. This also stops the spreading of malicious software over your network, if for example you had someone come and stay you can feel safe in the knowledge that any infections that are on their device will not spread to anyone else’s.
Excellent Wireless Range & High Performance
A lot of the time, the routers that your internet providers put in are cheap, and extremely mass produced. Good for them, bad for you. Experience a true Wi-Fi home and enjoy internet browsing from your laptops, smartphones, tablets and more. Play online games, enjoy HD video and high bandwidth downloads.

NetGenie has a good friendly GUI. I have been using Cyberoam UTM, so purchased NetGenie for my home and the security features have performed commendably well. I was unaware of the parental control features but now they help me monitor the internet usage of my family members. According to me NetGenie is the best buy according to the features and its price
