NetGenie is available in two editions, with varying degrees of administrator control – NetGenie Home is priced at Rs. 7,999, and NetGenie SOHO (Unified Threat Management) for small offices, at Rs. 10,999. On the home front, NetGenie allows for advanced GUI-based parental and internet access control options that can also be implemented age-wise, and across a range of devices from laptops to smartphones.
In the case of small offices, administrators will be able to control levels of access, including restriction-based and schedule-based access. The device’s built in Intrusion Prevention System, internet security, antivirus and firewall features also obviate the cost of deploying such a solution independently. The NetGenie appliance also has an in-built IPSec VPN feature, allowing for secure remote access to central or vendor offices.
