Within seconds of a new service being made available online, botnets start trying to attack it with username/password combinations. Vendors and consultants claim there is nothing you can do against this, and to make sure you use strong passwords.



Your servers are busy answering a multitude of connection attempts, and it’s just a matter of time before a botnet finds a username/password combination that actually works. As if that wasn’t bad enough, your security logs fill up with garbage an prevent you from seeing other potential issues.



Gatekeeper makes sure that the services are only visible to authorized IPs, and those IPs are dynamically updated as your authorized users move from location to location. Botnets can’t attack a service that they don’t see as existing.


The Gatekeeper device sits between your existing firewall and the internet. It is invisible to the internet, and has no public facing IP to hack into. It completely hides designated services, such as Remote Desktop, from the internet. With the services appearing as non-existent from the internet, there is nothing for botnets to attack.

Only authorized IP addresses are allowed to see that a given port is available. The authorization process is automated using an app running on your Android or Apple phone that tracks changes to your public IP as you change locations.


$30 USD per month per Gatekeeper Device, up to 10 users.
Additional blocks of 10 users are invoiced at $20 USD per month per Device.


No long term contract required, the service is delivered on a monthly basis.

Is Evolvo Gatekeeper a product or a web service?

Gatekeeper is both. It consists of a Mikrotik router, a web service and an app for mobile devices. There are also PC and web versions of the app, if needed.

What services can be protected?

Gatekeeper can protect any TCP or UDP based service, the most common ones being Remote Desktop, Email, FTP, SSH, Voip, Telnet and Web.

Does Gatekeeper work with any Mikrotik router?

Gatekeeper was designed to work with most newer Mikrotik routers, but we do not guatantee compatibility. For more information, please see the Device Compatibility list under the Documentation section of this page.

Can I provide the router myself, or do I have to purchase it through Evolvo?

We do not provide Mikrotik routers. You may purchase it from one of the Mikrotik distributors, see their web site for more information.

Do I have to configure the Mikrotik unit myself, or will you do that for me?

We provide simple instructions for you to auto-provision the router yourself. It required that a few files be dragged and dropped, followed by a router reboot. See the Quick Start Guide under the Documentation section of this page.


Gatekeeper is designed to allow you to take control of your network security quickly and efficiently, without even touching your existing firewall.

It does this by completely hiding your services from the internet, as opposed to the usual “answer the request and see if the password is valid”. Botnets will use the validation process and keep trying to find the correct password until they gain access. With Gatekeeper, there’s simply nothing for them to try.


5 Simple Steps

  • Purchase one of the supported routers
  • Update your router firmware to the latest version
  • Register for the Gatekeeper Service
  • Provision your router
  • Add your router in your Gatekeeper account
  • You’re done!
