What is the difference between Roqos and its competitors?

Some competing products are add-on devices connected to your existing router like a desktop PC. This not only means you have one more device to control, but also if this device is offline then your home is not protected. In addition, these devices use a technique called "ARP spoofing" which was originally a hacking method, and some devices may have intermittent problems with this method. Roqos Core WiFi VPN router is the main router that is in-line with Internet traffic. As it examines every packet to and from the Internet it not only provides parental controls but also cybersecurity protection to every device in your home, such as gaming systems, thermostats, door locks, etc.

Roqos Core is also open source and transparent platform with root login, as we think all cybersecurity solutions should be open, otherwise they may contain software from countries known to have cyber attacks to certain countries.

Below table lists comprehensive comparison. (* coming soon)
