Bringing Cyber Security to Everyone and Everything, Everywhere.

The Internet is Broken

The world should not be a place where you have to worry about asking a (search) question. You should not need to be scared of clicking a link sent to you by a friend. You should not be withheld information in the public domain.


  • At Keezel we believe in the right to access information in a private and secure manner.
  • We believe that you should be able to use the internet without getting hacked. 
  • We believe you have a right to choose what the internet knows about you. 
  • We believe that you should be in charge of deciding what you want to do online.
  • And we believe that you shouldn’t need a computer science degree to make that happen.

That’s why it’s time for Keezel, the simple and better way to protect yourself from cyber-attacks and enjoy a private and open internet. 


Help us to bring Cyber Security to everyone and everything, everywhere. Get in on the ground floor.

Making Uncompromised Security... Easy

What used to be difficult has been made easy with Keezel. Keezel provides state of the art protection from hackers and snoopers, with the push of a single button. 


Connect your devices to the Keezel WiFi, and the Keezel itself to a nearby WiFi. Keezel will now:

  • Encrypt all data going in and out of your devices using the largest combined VPN network on the planet
  • Prevent unauthorized access as a firewall
  • Protect from phishing attacks
  • Block advertisements, a frequent source of malware.


Keezel receives daily threat updates and continuous updates to its operating system to ensure the best level of security. The good news is that you don't have to install anything on your trusted laptop, tablet or phone. Just hook 'm up to the Keezel and they benefit from Keezel security.


And what's more, Keezel also doubles as a power bank keeping your gadgets charged throughout the day.


The Cyber Security Market is Booming

Worldwide spending on information security products and services will reach more than $114 billion in 2018, an increase of 12.4 percent from last year, according to the latest forecast from Gartner, Inc. In 2019, the market is forecast to grow 8.7 percent to $124 billion.


The AV-TEST Institute registers every single day over 350,000 new malicious programs (malware) and potentially unwanted applications (PUA).


The only way for more and more connected companies to mitigate this risk is to invest in security solutions both within their premises as well as in the hands of their employees.


Last year one specimen of malware, named 'NotPetya', wreaked havoc around the world. A White House assessment estimated it's total damages to be than $10 billion. This was confirmed by former Homeland Security adviser Tom Bossert, who was the most senior cybersecurity focused official in the US government at the time. From Maersk, to Fed-Ex, billions of dollars 


Companies must step up their cyber security investments to keep hackers out and their data and networks secure. If you don't invest, you may risk enormous costs (as felt by companies like Fed-EX and MAERSK)


The Clear Leader in This Exploding Market

Keezel has been one of the most successful Indiegogo campaigns (top 0.1% campaigns), beating its goal (1900%!) raising more than $1 million USD revenue from over 5000 customers in 100 countries. Available in over 125 countries, Keezel's can now be purchased some of the largest retailers in the world like Amazon, Touch of Modern, Staples, Office Depot and Brookstone.

Raised over $700k from 811 investors in 2018

Making Security Simple

1. Push

Turn on your Keezel. It’s only got one button on the bottom. Easy-peasy!

2. Connect

Just connect your phone or laptop to the secure Keezel Hotspot then to the nearby WiFi.

3. Surf

And thats it! You're all set to browse, stream, bank, play, listen, and watch.

Both B2B and B2C Gives Us An Edge

Keezel Netherlands and Keezel Inc. are currently selling devices and subscriptions to consumers and businesses worldwide. The subscription gives the customers access to all the global VPN servers and at speeds that allow streaming of HD video. The device can also be used without subscription at lower speeds. 


Keezel Inc. is selling in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Current active and lined up channels for Keezel Inc. and Keezel Netherlands are our own webshop as well as through retailers, e-tailers, affiliates and strategic resellers, such as telecom providers, cable providers, VPN partners, and Infosec partners. Partners 


Keezel Inc is preparing a more integrated business offering as well to provide the Keezel product for the B2B market integrating with traditional corporate VPN solutions.

Keezel Offer Security for Various Industries

Keezel products and services provide value to both consumers and businesses. There is a lot of interest from various business sectors that struggle with providing a secure connection to less than secure WiFi-enabled devices, machinery, and tools. In addition, Keezel represents a perfect tool for the road warrior and any remote working employee.

The Versatility Sets Us Apart

Online Protection

For consumers and businesses, at coffee shops, airports, hotels, co-working spaces...

Privacy

Keeping online activity private from internet providers and governments.

Unblocking

Keezel unblocks sports games and TV-shows blocked in a specific region.

Smart Devices

Protecting smart device at home (baby monitors, webcams, doorlocks).

Portable

Staying safe on any WiFi network. Keezel is portable!


Powerbank

Charging phones or tablets (Keezel has a powerbank function)

Shaking up the Privacy Industry

But the plans are even bigger... Keezel aims to secure any connected device. Not only for consumers and business professionals but any connected device used in verticals like the hospitality industry, finance, construction, medical and industrial sector. 


All these sectors are struggling to protect their connected machinery and tools, as they fail to receive top-notch security updates from their manufacturers. Keezel fixes this with an extra line of defense.

The need for additional security is a huge opportunity for us as well as a must have for a society that gets more and more dependant on connected devices. Invest now, get in at the ground floor and help us provide secure connectivity, everywhere.

The Keezel product has also entered the B2B market selling its current consumer version. The Keezel product aims to become an integrated solution that works with current enterprise security implementations, such as Cisco, Palo Alto, and Barracuda.


The B2B offering, Keezel for Business, aims to be a global corporate grade WiFi. It will provide seamless access to corporate applications, network drives, and printers wherever you are on the planet. This will be achieved by cost-effectively and securely leveraging WiFi where available and 4G where needed. Keezel for business is designed to scale from freelancers through SMB to multinational corporations.


The Keezel product will also be valuable to communications industries within their own marketplace. Keezel Inc aims to sell Keezels in United States, Canada and Mexico through strategic partnerships (with telecom providers, VPN partners, Infosec partners). Partners will be able to include the Keezel product in their current offering, thereby lowering churn on their own products or services. We are already seeing success in Europe with this approach.

Invest in Our Bigger Game

The past year has shown that big tech companies exploit your private data (Cambridge Analytica), behave incompetently (Equifax) or carelessly (hacked baby monitors). We have taken the first steps into bringing a new type of internet connection to you. An internet connection that respects your privacy. An internet connection that keeps your smart home devices from spying on you. An internet connection that protects all of your online activities at home and on the go. Keezel is working on becoming the first global provider of Private Internet.


We believe that to drastically increase security in business, we have to embrace the fact that business is mobile and hyper connected. Business relies on devices with bad security (think of BYO, smart medical devices, a ship’s navigation system or the control unit of a turbine in a hydroelectric power-plant). We need to make sure that security is built in. This means that we need to intertwine connectivity and security in a way that is a win for users and IT & compliance managers alike. Keezel aims to build and sell a range of devices to protect any type of connected device.


We are building a single tech platform that will be the backbone for both consumers and business applications.


This is an important journey and we are proud to be on it, together with you.


If you want to support us on this mission, invest today.


Thank you,


Aike Müller & Friso Schmid

Keezel isn't your typical hotspot. Instead of creating a personal network for you, it encrypts existing, unsecured Wi-Fi to protect you from lurking hackers.

Keezel VPN Hub Brings Simplicity To WiFi Security
February 26, 2016

That’s the basic premise. For one thing, then, it simplifies the VPN service part -- choosing one, signing up for one, and having to log into the service each time you want to connect (with The Keez you just connect). For another, it lets you log into the Keezel device rather than, say, a Starbucks

Keezel Brings VPN Internet to All Travelers
July 30, 2015

The big benefit to this is greater security when using public Wi-Fi. Keezel is targeted at travelers, business associates, or those who love to hang out around cafes, hotels, and more. It also probably appeals to those who dislike government censors in some of the more banhammering countries.

February 25, 2016

Unfortunately for most people, hacking is easy to dismiss as something that won’t happen to you, but Keezel is trying to change that attitude by offering a simple way to use a VPN. Keezel essentially encrypts the network you’re on.

Keezel review: wireless portable VPN made easy
October 28, 2018

As a portable VPN hub, Keezel does everything you could want. It’s simple enough to set up and configure, connects to everything you can throw at it, and streamlines connecting multiple devices to a public Wi-Fi source. The longterm subscription costs are good value compared with the competition too

Today’s topic: encryption

7 months ago

Hello investors and followers,

We wanted to highlight a very important part of the Keezel solution: encryption. 

Encryption has been widely used by governments for thousands of years to keep information secure. Keezel uses AES256, which stands for Advanced Encryption Standard 256-bit, which was approved in May 2002 as the US federal standard to keep government communication safe from, well.. let’s say some other countries.

It’s considered secure and to give you an idea of how long it would take to crack, here it goes.

The key, the thing that encrypts and decrypts data, is a series of 256 1s or 0s. This means that er 2x2x2x2x2… (in total 256 multiplications in a row) = 

115,792,089,237,316,195,423,570,985,008,687,907,853,269,984,665,640,564,039,457,584,007,913,129,639,936 possible combinations

All the supercomputers in the world would, by far, not be able to try this number of possible combinations even if they had started at the dawn of the universe.

Back to the mundane. You can join our company as an investor today!

Keezel Update: Norsk Hydro, initial costs of ransomware are in...

7 months ago

Dear investors and followers,

Three weeks ago we reported on a ransomware attack that was paralysing one of the largest aluminum manufacturers in the world, Norsk Hydro.

Recently, they confirmed that their total cost of this attack has reached $40 million USD (rhttps://www.helpnetsecurity.com/2019/03/27/norsk-hydro-ransomware-losses/)

As mentioned in the same article cyber-insurance has been difficult to collect for parties such as DLA Piper in the past. Prevention of such attacks may be a better investment for companies. 

Keezel provides extra security for companies protecting their data.

Invest in Keezel today and get in at the ground floor.

Thanks,

Keezel Firewall Feature

8 months ago

Hello investors and followers,

Another highlight this week! The Keezel Firewall. The firewall protects you from intruders entering any of your devices that you’ve connected to the Keezel. This has been of help to consumers who use the Keezel but it becomes an even more urgent matter for businesses handling customer or company data.


Unlike software that you install on a laptop, Keezel protects you from intruders at a deeper network layer. This means that you never have to connect your phone or laptop, with your personal information on it, directly to a public rogue WiFi network. Keezel is in between your devices and the dangerous WiFi network, protecting you with its powerful Firewall. Any company using mayor brands like Cisco, Barracuda, Palo Alto VPN can start using Keezel as a portable secure extension of their corporate network.

Help us build a brighter future, join Keezel today.

Thanks,

Keezel Ad-blocking feature

8 months ago

Dear investors and followers,

This time we wanted to highlight a much appreciated feature of the Keezel: ad-blocking.

Keezel’s ad-blocker:

  • protects you from ad-injected malware
  • prevents big retailers/marketing companies from serving you targeted ads based on your browsing activity
  • makes your pages load faster because all those ad images don't need to be downloaded anymore
  • spares you the nuisance of having to keep closing ads in order to be able to see the content that you were actually looking for
  • provides an overall better, cleaner, and safer browsing experience
  • saves you money and mobile data if you’re using your data plan for browsing - all those ad images and videos no longer being downloaded could mean using only half the data you’d use without the Keezel ad-blocker.

Join us today and let's grow Keezel together.

Thanks,

Norsk Hydro crippled by Ransomware

8 months ago

Dear investors and followers,

The past week has shown the world once again what it’s up against. As we’ve learned and more companies are learning every day, cybersecurity for your business should not be an after thought.

Norsk Hydro, one of the world’s biggest aluminum producers was hit by ransomware attack last Monday (click image for video).


Sadly, this is not a first. Last year one specimen of malware, named 'NotPetya', wreaked havoc around the world. A White House assessment estimated it's total damages to be than $10 billion. This was confirmed by former Homeland Security adviser Tom Bossert, who was the most senior cybersecurity focused official in the US government at the time.

Companies are getting a rough wake up call and are looking for solutions to protect themselves and their employees. And that's where we come in. Keezel is a great addition to your cybersecurity arsenal protecting your employees and devices anywhere they go.

Get in at the ground floor and invest in Keezel today.


Thanks in advance,

Keezel at Mobile World Congress

8 months ago

Dear investors and followers,


We are excited to share that new investors keep joining our campaign from around the world. During the past week our team spent time in Barcelona at the Mobile World Congress, talking with hundreds of people of which we want to highlight the following types of conversations that we are currently having:


Prospective resellers and system integrators

These are the parties that businesses go to for their IT needs. They will be part of our strategy of building a 2 tier distribution network which will allow us to dramatically increase our reach without having to spend enormous amounts on marketing.


Cybersecurity companies

These companies help their clients protect themselves before or after they’ve suffered a breach. They are interested including Keezel in the broader solutions they implement.


Technology partners

Keezel currently offers firewall, vpn, phishing protection and adblocking, but Keezel is essentially a platform which can run other services as well. We have been talking with technology partners who would like to be included in our cyber eco-system. Future customers would be able to purchase their threat detection services on our Keezel.


Telecom partnerships

Keezel is working on the next gen 4G keezel and this makes partnering with telecom providers even more of a no-brainer. We are discussing bundling up Keezel with data plans and sim cards.


Payment providers

Payment providers are interested in offering Keezels to their customers in order to lower risks and potential financial losses.


Investment firms

We had meetings and are in conversations with a number of investment firms who are looking at putting in larger investments to help us scale faster.

These are not done deals, but ongoing discussions that will add to our revenue in 2019. If you are interested in investing, join us now


Thanks,

Keezel is expanding in retail and gearing up for business launch!

10 months ago

Dear investors and followers,

As we are working hard to build the next generation of Keezel product aimed to provide security to both small and medium businesses as well large enterprises, we shouldn’t ignore what we have achieved with Keezel for consumers so far.

Besides the initial crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, where we got global support and raised over $1 million USD, we are proud to be increasing our retail channels.



For the future we intend to grow the consumer brand  as a great way to showcase what Keezel can do for people. One such goal is to get Keezel as a product available at airports so that business travellers can get one right off the shelf, experience it and then consider it as a company wide solution.

If you want to become part of the Keezel future, join our campaign today and help us expand the business.

Have a great weekend,
