Fingbox Network Security Toolkit Update: software development, manufacturing progress, onboarding and other exciting Fing news

Update: this article was written during our Fingbox campaign. Our network security device is now successfully launched and available to buy at our webshop

Hello everyone,

February is rolling along and our entire team is head deep in getting your Fingbox ready. You’ll be happy to know that we’re still on schedule for June 2017 shipping. Here’s an update on everything that has been happening.

The Fing Team is growing and working non-stop on your Fingbox

Thanks to your support and reaching our 500k stretch goal, we could strengthen our resources by adding 2 new people to our development team.

Giuseppe and Daniele have joined Carlo and Marco (the Fing founders) in our Rome offices.

They’re settling in fine and enjoying our new office location which is tastefully decorated with Swedish inspired wall art.

Right now, they’re all working around the clock to make sure Fingbox is ready for you.

Fingbox Software Evolution

The team have made significant progress on the software development side. In the last weeks, they’ve focused on the following Fingbox features:

  • Strong Architecture that gives each Fingbox top performance
  • End-to-end Fingbox (mobile-cloud-Fingbox) detection and automated setup
  • Lightning-fast network scan from Fingbox for optimal updates and notifications to the cloud

Fingbox Hardware Evolution

  • The Fingbox board designer, board manufacturer, and case manufacturers are all finalizing the design and mechanics of their individual components
  • The final boards will be delivered to our team in the second half of March for our own testing and development
  • Mass production is still on target to start shipping Fingbox in June
  • The designers have also been experimenting with the LED light display on Fingbox
