Palo Alto Networks announced the launch of Okyo Garde, a cybersecurity solution delivered through a premium mesh-enabled Wi-Fi 6 system.
Okyo Garde combines hardware, software and security services into one subscription, the #1 cyber security company said.
“Okyo Garde shows up as beautiful hardware and an easy app. But under the hood, it’s pure world-class security with threat intelligence — the same technology that secures some of the world’s largest companies, banks, hospitals and the rest of our 85,000 worldwide customers,” said Mario Queiroz, executive vice president, Palo Alto Networks.
Okyo Garde will be integrating with Prisma Access, Palo Alto Networks’ security platform, for larger companies looking to protect employees who are working from home. By combining Okyo Garde and Prisma Access, corporations will be able to extend their corporate networks and bring unified security policy management and SASE (secure access service edge) to work-from-home employees.
The work-from-home employee can also use Okyo Garde to enable an additional separate, private Wi-Fi network for the rest of their home and family’s needs. This network will have security capabilities designed for consumers and will be under the control of the employee or other family members.
Okyo Garde gives small businesses the cybersecurity protection they need with 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.
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, Palo Alto Networks offers 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.
