IXDen, an Israel-based Internet of things (IoT) security provider, has unveiled IXDen Smart Homes, a fully automated solution for protecting smart home devices against cyberattacks, tampering, and data manipulation.
According to recent reports, more than 2 billion electronic records were left exposed by a breach at a Chinese company. By 2020, 30 billion IoT smart household devices will be in use every day and will need protection, according to IXDen.
“As more and more smart home devices hit the market place, consumers are increasingly opening themselves up to significant risk,” says Zion Harel, co-founder and co-CEO of IXDen. “These devices, which offer users the greatest of convenience also offer unprecedented accessibility to hackers who are increasingly able to infiltrate homes, stealing data and personal information, and even recording and filming users in their homes.”
IXDen Smart Homes is designed to, for the first time, utilize behavioral biometrics on endpoint devices and will include multifactor authentication driven by artificial intelligence and machine learning. The wide range of protected devices will include cameras, smart thermostats, smart routers, and baby sensors among many others.
“While there are many vendors providing home automation devices, there is a lack of accepted industry security standards to ensure that customers and their data are kept safe,” Harel says. “Our innovative and unique solutions for securing IoT devices, enable our customers to secure their smart home devices and gives them the piece-of-mind that their personal data and lives remains secured and private.
“With the increased volume and sophistication of today’s cyberattacks, security in homes has become much more relevant. In order for the next generation of smart home devices such as cameras, thermostats, and smart air conditioners to gain mass adoption, they must be completely secured. The ability to secure these products will literally make or break the IoT revolution.”
