Join the stream: https://lnkd.in/epSm-7z

Our Sales Manager Radovan Hosek will introduce PaKon, a part of the security stack on Turris routers. In our previous Turris Academy sessions were covered several topic: unboxing, secure connection via OpenVPN, WireGuard and others.
Now it’s a time to show another feature this time focusing on security - PaKon.

In Radovan's own words:

"This session will show a device connectivity monitoring service - PaKon.
Admin of Turris router can see and check time, date and data transmission of any device connected to Turris router. This can be an application case from real life, let’s call it family device monitoring in my case.

I’m a father of 2 boys (8 &12 years old). During COVID-19 country lock down they had online education for many weeks. But – what did they do on internet during school hours? PaKon gave me an answer. For sure, there is a strong privacy for device/user as well."

In this episode, we will show you not only what can be done easily
with press of the button (either on hardware itself or in WebUI), but
also how to get even more functionality from CLI.

The city of Bohumin needed to solve the challenge of providing stable and secure connectivity with high data throughput in the city library, sport, and relax areas called Bospor.

Mr. Jiří Rozsypal, Information Technology Administrator from the Bohumín Municipal Office says: „We are using Turris routers for many years now and since 2020, the latest model of Turris Omnia. It does exactly what we need. They are based on open-source software and manufactured and developed in the Czech Republic. As a part of our long-term cooperation, we are sending our tips and ideas to the Turris team to improve and expand the functionalities.

Thanks to the local support and broad configuration options, we implemented application scenarios and create network connections that were impossible to put in place with other products of a comparable price category.

These were one of the many reasons why we‘ve chosen the Turris router platform. With slight exaggeration, one could say that because of Turris' continuous and ubiquitous updates, we have a new router every month. Thus, we are saving public finances, our time, and effort."
