Kogan talks net filter

New cotton technology 'Portects' users

Computerworld Australia talks to Kogan Technologies' Ruslan Kogan about its new offering to protect mums and dads from spams and scams.

Mums and dads need to be protected from spams and scams. How does the Portector save them?

The innovative technology used with the Egyptian 8000-thread count cotton not only provides the best protection but is also very comfortable. The Kogan Portector is the only product using a blend of Egyptian cotton that has a thread count this high.

I've heard that I can get around other net filters using proxies. Can I just cut a hole in yours?

The Kogan Portector is very flexible. Certain bits of it are actually perforated to ensure easy use and customisation.

Will the Portector's innovative mesh technology work for ph(f)ishing?

We have been so busy ensuring this product works well to protect the portal, we are yet to do extensive testing for other industries, although we believe it has many applications.

So your filter should work, but why do you think the government's one won't?

I frequently travel to one of the only other countries in the world that has an Internet filter, China. While in China the filter blocks and disallows certain content like YouTube, Facebook and websites about China's history. Even though I am behind the Great Firewall of China it did not stop me from launching a YouTube video for the Kogan Portector. A simple piece of software called Freedur gives me unrestricted Internet access while in China. There are plenty of software packages like this around. The only thing the filter will achieve is slowing down the Internet for everyone and also ensure that any potential criminals become better at covering their tracks online. Also, it would only be a matter of hours before these software packages would be a standard plugin in your web browser.

...Wait a minute. Aren't you just selling nylon netting for an incredible profit?

Although this technology looks simple, please don't underestimate the countless hours that have gone into developing our Internet filter.
