Wireless networks are available in many companies and offer their customers and employees fast access to the internet. This is useful if the employees are permitted to use their own devices, such as laptops (BYOD - Bring Your Own Device). The safety aspect however, is hereby often neglected. Routers in connection with OctoGate protect your business and are also fast and flexible to use.

The installation is simple and only takes 3 minutes
Requirement is an installed OctoGate-Firewall. The connection of a router is as follows:

  • Connect the router via a network cable to the network -> Internet connection
    You do not need an extra power outlet, just a normal power supply via Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology
  • The router is automatically recognised by the integrated OctoGate controller and automatically supplied with the latest firmware. There are no further manual installations or configurations required.

The OctoGate web interface allows the administration of multiple routers. This is also possible, when the locations are very far apart from each other. The fields of application are diverse, like e.g. Home Office. Take a router with firmware OctoGate home with you. There you connect the router to the internet and without your intervention it automatically establishes a secure VPN connection to the corporate network. You can then use the corporate network without compromising the data protection. It is also possible to use on camping sites, in cafes or when field staff are on the road.

Standard Router with OctoGate OS
The OctoGate works with standard wireless routers from various manufacturers. However, only the hardware is used. The existing operating system of the routers is overwritten with the OctoGate operating system. This includes all protective mechanisms for the defence against Virus and Spam developed by OctoGate. Furthermore, unauthorized access to your wireless network will be denied. 

Your Router turns  into the Access-Point

In conjunction with the operating system OctoGate your router turns into a fully functional Access-Point. The Access-Point transmits the wireless signal throughout the building, connecting your staff, your customers and machines securely to the internet.
