IKARUS offers highly configurable settings including: time based access control, download limit per session and web filtering options.

The Brandable landing page is based on your configurations and design. Once users have entered their information in order to access the Wi-Fi (Data collection tool) their information is available to use for pro-active marketing purposes.

The block-response page (Rebrandable) informs the user that their web request has been denied either for malicious content or due to user-defined settings.

IKARUS can be integrated with minimum effort at the gateway level as well as managed via the cloud. It is perfectly compatible with all firewalls. Comprehensive log information and automated reports complete the feature set.
