Cybersecurity is more important than ever for travelers in the digital age — you never know when your online data might be compromised. Firewalla Gold is the latest in the wave of next-gen that offers multi-gigabyte smart firewall protection to protect your digital devices.


Firewalla Gold is a router that includes network segmentation and 3+ Gbps speeds. It aids with intrusion prevention by placing firewalls around your connected devices and helps to block malicious websites and hacks. Other features include ad block, vulnerability scans, safe searches and GEO IP-filtering. It also offers behavior analytics and provides stats on your bandwidth usage. There’s also the Firewalla OpenVPN server to help protect your privacy when using public WiFi. Parents will love the controls that allow you to block social media in foreign places along with providing alerts to your kids’ activity while online.


Best of all, Firewalla offers localized language options for expats living around the world.


Firewalla Gold is still in the development stages, but first shipments are expected to begin this summer. It’s currently set to retail for $499, but you can snag a discount by supporting the fundraising campaign. Check out the website for more information on features and ways to order.
