Here is the latest on your Fingbox. The whole team have been hard at work (lots of long days and late nights) to make Fingbox come to life. The software is currently being tested in the homes of our team members and everyone on our team – including our CEO – is very impressed with the features.

Right now, we are focused on making sure that all Fingboxes will be the highest quality standard when they are delivered. We’re still tying up the last moving parts on the hardware side to get your Fingboxes shipping by the end of June.

New Network Security Features Added! (just because we love you!)

We’re excited to share that we have been able to add a couple of extra network security features to your Fingbox thanks to the expansion of our development team which was funded by your contributions.

    1. WIDS (Wireless Intruder Detection System) on 2Ghz spectrum: We’ve added new security features which will detect the most harmful Wi-Fi attacks and offer protection against MITM (Main In The Middle) and other malicious network attacks. Specifically, Fingbox will detect and alert on:
    • Unauthorized Access Points – Rogue Access Points – Evil Twin Access Points
    • Wi-Fi jamming and de-authentication floods

    2. Valid IP Address Tracking: Fingbox will start tracking devices even before they get a valid network address in your network. Even devices that are not getting a valid address in your network will be tracked. This means that Fingbox will be very useful for:
    • Troubleshooting: You’ll know immediately if you have an issue with your router/DHCP-server.
    • Security: More importantly you’ll get peace of mind knowing any device which is physically (air or wired) connected to your network will always be tracked and reported.

The End of July: Fingbox Fulfillment
