⨊ F-Secure SENSE Router ⨊ And It's ⨊ Security Cloud Protection ⨊

I understand, that the F-Secure SENSE Router has the F-Secure Security Cloud protection and that no other router provides such protection.

In my opinion, the F-Secure SENSE Router's Security Cloud protection separates the F-Secure SENSE Router from any other router.

I want to ensure my team, that our Wi-Fi network is both fast and protected from data breaches.

As such, I have a some questions.

QUESTION (1): Exactly, how does the F-Secure SENSE Router Security Cloud protection protect our connected devices?

QUESTION (2): Does the F-Secure SENSE Router Security Cloud protection slow down our upload and download speeds?

QUESTION (3): Will the third-party routers using F-Secure SENSE as a "pre-installed solution" (https://bit.ly/3D82dAx) in their routers, include the F-Secure SENSE Router Security Cloud protection?

QUESTION (4): Will the F-Secure SENSE Router's firmware offer WPA3 one day?

QUESTION (5): Will the F-Secure SENSE Router's firmware accommodate the Wi-Fi Alliance's Wi-Fi 6?

QUESTION (6): We want to ensure that "all of our network data" goes through the F-Secure Freedome VPN. This will maintain our privacy and maximize our protection when we are online. So, will the F-Secure SENSE Router's firmware ( one day ), work with the F-Secure Freedome VPN to protect our iOT devices?

    Hi @Issues4Life

    QUESTION (1): Exactly, how does the F-Secure SENSE Router Security Cloud protection protect our connected devices?

    https://community.f-secure.com/safe-en/kb/articles/5281-what-is-security-cloud Connected device browse URL through SENSE router > SENSE router send the hash of the URL to security cloud for analysis > security cloud return the security rating > If rating is unsafe, SENSE router blocks connected device from accessing the URL, else, SENSE router allows it.

    QUESTION (2): Does the F-Secure SENSE Router Security Cloud protection slow down our upload and download speeds?

    See response in this KB article;

    QUESTION (3): Will the third-party routers using F-Secure SENSE as a "pre-installed solution" (https://bit.ly/3D82dAx) in their routers, include the F-Secure SENSE Router Security Cloud protection?

    QUESTION (4): Will the F-Secure SENSE Router's firmware offer WPA3 one day?

    This cannot be done with firmware update. Meaning, WPA3 and WiFi6 are hardware dependent and can't be added to SENSE Router in a firmware update.

    QUESTION (5): Will the F-Secure SENSE Router's firmware accommodate the Wi-Fi Alliance's Wi-Fi 6?

    No, WiFi6 need new hardware. WPA3 and WiFi6 are HW dependent and can't be added to SENSE Router in a firmware update, hence they will not be supported.

    QUESTION (6): We want to ensure that "all of our network data" goes through the F-Secure Freedome VPN. This will maintain our privacy and maximize our protection when we are online. So, will the F-Secure SENSE Router's firmware ( one day ), work with the F-Secure Freedome VPN to protect our iOT devices?

    F-Secure SENSE Router and F-Secure Freedome VPN are 2 separate products and there are no plans to combine these to protect IoT devices specifically. We believe the protection for IoT devices provided by the SENSE Router is sufficient.
