Detroit Startup Unveils Home Router with Military-grade Security


Veil Systems, a Detroit-based startup that manufactures home security products has launched its first product, a router offering “military-grade” security for residential users for their Internet connection.

“It’s incredibly difficult for consumers to be confident they won’t get hacked or have their privacy invaded somehow, until now,” says Edsard Ravelli, founder of Veil Systems. “With the Veiltower, we’re offering consumers a fast, safe, and private connection everywhere they go.”

Ravelli says the router, uses a military-grade  2048-bit encryption and protects against malware, phishing, and many viruses.

He says the Veiltower router works with Android, iOS, Mac, and Windows devices and has an easy setup. When the user leaves the house, the router will connect with their smartphone through the company’s Veil Access App.

“The Veiltower’s distinctive design creates a router you want to show off rather than hide,” says Eric Strebel, designer of Veiltower. “The antennas offer a range and speed that’s beyond what you will find in any other home router.”

The router costs nearly $200. Veil Systems has launched a Kickstarter fundraising campaign for Veiltower, hoping to raise $250,000 in fewer than 30 days.
