Partnerships between VPN providers and router manufacturers are nothing new. FlashRouters is a prime example of how to pair routers with some of the top VPN services using open source software like Tomato and DD-WRT. But the time has come to take the next step, bringing privacy protection to the next generation of routers. Roqos is a self-described home internet security service that are known for their multi-functional routers. This technology is combined with the protection of PureVPN, as the companies have partnered together to bring Wouter: a Roqos device that accesses PureVPN servers to keep your privacy safe while making your life easier at the same time.
Meet Wouter, the New Generation of Routers
The router by Roqos (dubbed as the Roqos Core) uses patent-pending technology to bring innovative new features to your home. Other than using a VPN connection to safeguard your home network and smart devices from tracker software and malware, it boasts a web filtering interface (meaning certain sites can be blacklisted or whitelisted), parental control to review your kid’s browsing history and even a scheduling option that blocks internet access at certain times of the day – ensuring the kids finish their homework instead of wasting time on Facebook. Additionally, Wouter is a top of the range router by itself, providing simultaneous dual-band 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi, with a combined bandwidth of 1,600 Mbps.
Enhanced Privacy With PureVPN
With PureVPN integrated into Wouter homeowners will receive access to highly secure military-grade encryption that protects end-to-end data flow. PureVPN has established its presence all around the world, setting up more than 750 servers in 141 countries. Plus, the service prevents DNS leaking while enjoying regionally unblocked content. Currently Wouter is sold for one easy payment of $249. The price includes the hardware itself in a choice of three fabulous colors, one year of warranty and one year’s worth of PureVPN subscription.
In the end, any innovation that furthers the noble goal of privacy protection is a welcome addition. Having an advanced router that makes good use of the features a VPN provider has to offer is highly commendable. We hope that other VPN companies will follow PureVPN’s example and continue to innovate by pairing their services with hardware setups for online security and privacy protection across all of our devices.
