Is Qotom trust-worthy for business?



  • At my work, I need to get a couple small/quiet routers to install at the remote offices our salespeople work-from-home from.  There are a few reasons why I can't just make them use OpenVPN clients, so I am trying to set them up with pfSense routers to act as OpenVPN clients and help reduce the risk from that vector in general (Keep their LANs safer etc.)

    Since I am trying to keep the equipment on their side small/clean/consumer-friendly - ish and want to give them good performance I am looking at something like the Qotom pico-pc's on amazon, so that I can get something with AES-NI and not have to wait for the pf-sense firewalls to be available.

    My question is this:  can I trust the Qotom equipment to be relatively risk-free with regards to potential backdoors etc?  Am I just being too paranoid?  Should I just get some standard mini-itx computers for a couple hundred dollars more and expect them to deal with the size?

    For going this way related to the point of risk freeness you should buy hardware that is really
    good supported by pfSense or well known supported by pfSense.

    with regards to potential backdoors etc?

    How from us should should know this really?

    There are many small platforms out there ready to go or self made, likes you want.
    Qotom Pico this ones?
    Jetway NF9HG-2930 Intel Celeron Quad Core Fanless PC
    From the pfSense store a SG-2220 or SG-2240 unit should be also a really nice deal!

    more and expect them to deal with the size?

    Which size you mean. Only the OpenVPN and firewall task, this should be done by many computers,
    but then on top this otion, and this function and this packet and, and, and,….. so on, will only narrowing
    down the entire speed and throughput!
