Palo Alto Networks Intros Okyo Garde Work-From-Home Security
September 10, 2021
Garde is an enterprise-grade cybersecurity solution delivered through a
premium mesh-enabled Wi-Fi 6 system — addressing the risks of a world in
which the workplace is as likely to be a kitchen table or spare bedroom
as an office cubicle. Okyo Garde combines hardware, software and
security services into one seamless, simple subscription.
In many cases, the home is quickly becoming a "branch of one," with
multiple devices but without IT teams, and without a deep set of
cybersecurity protections. Now these homes face the same threat
landscape as any enterprise — threat actors may even see them as
vulnerable entry points into the corporate network. Okyo Garde was
designed to help protect these homes.
the number and frequency of cyberattacks have increased significantly,
small businesses also need to ensure they are protected with the best
available security — but they also need to be able to install and manage
that security as easily as using their favorite app. Okyo Garde gives
small businesses the cybersecurity protection they need with
unparalleled malware and ransomware prevention, phishing protection,
infected device detection, along and suspicious activity monitoring and
control — all while delivering ultra-fast Wi-Fi. The Okyo Garde mobile
app makes it easy for businesses to have comprehensive control and
visibility over their digital security and Wi-Fi network activity, and
it helps make setup simple. Okyo Garde can also be ordered with the Okyo
Concierge service, designed to provide peace of mind for small
businesses or for anyone wishing extra attention for installation, 24/7
support or on-site troubleshooting.
Okyo Garde subscriptions for small businesses start at $349/year and include a mesh-enabled Wi-Fi 6 system. Starting today, in the U.S., Okyo Garde can be pre-ordered on okyo.com, with estimated ship date this fall. For pre-orders through September 30, 2021, we offer Okyo Concierge with Pro subscription tier at no cost, a value of up to $148. Expanded distribution is expected from Palo Alto Networks NextWave partners later this year. Okyo Garde Enterprise Edition, with Prisma Access integration, is expected to be available from Palo Alto Networks and Palo Alto Networks NextWave partners in the U.S. in early 2022.
