The world's first home network security device

In the early 2000s, I co-founded a company called Spam Cube. At Spam Cube, we invented, developed, patented and sold the world’s first home network security connected device called the Spam Cube.

The Spam Cube was priced at $150 and stopped spam, viruses and phishing threats on up to 4 computers by simply plugging it in-between your router and broadband modem.

Anti-spam protection was built into the device. Anti-virus and anti-phishing technology were delivered to the device via an optional managed security service called Security OnDemand, which sold for $52 per year.

The Spam Cube launched in March of 2006 and was tested and reviewed by many tech journalists, including Tom Spring of PC World and David Pogue of the New York Times. David Pogue featured his review of the Spam Cube on the front page of the New York Times business section. Spam Cube's website,, won a WebAward for outstanding achievement in web development.
