While we have seen a few routers come through offering anti-virus capabilities onboard, we have yet to see a security company come to market with a router, until now.
F-Secure, the makers of internet security and anti-virus products for years has recently entered the hardware market with its own wireless routing solution. Sense is a dual-band capable AC1750 class solution that aims to secure your internet connection both coming and going. F-Secure uses what they are calling three-layer protection to do this by securing your home network with the Sense router, securing your device with the sense app and real-time monitoring with cloud protection.
The technical details start with specifications of the device. We start with an AC1750 platform, so we have 450mbps on the 2.4GHz band and 1300Mbps on the 5GHz band provided by four internal antennas. This is paired with a single USB 3.0 port and four RJ45 ethernet ports, 4 for LAN and one for WAN. The Sense includes support for Bluetooth 4.0 and Bluetooth Low Energy and is powered by a 1GHz dual-core SoC, 512MB of DDR3 and 1GB of NAND flash.
MSRP of the F-Secure Sense comes in at $199.99 with a one-year warranty. The Sense comes with a one-year security subscription, after which is $9.99 per month.
