Protection against cyber-attacks
Smart home devices are notoriously insecure, and it is relatively easy to exploit the vulnerabilities of millions of them – from smart alarms, thermostats, baby monitors, lighting, locks, and more. The Internet of Things market is growing at an exponential pace, with Gartner forecasting the number of connected devices to reach more than 21 billion by 2020, and with that growth comes an increased risk of cyber-attacks.
Dojo by BullGuard smart home solution
Dojo by BullGuard is the only connected home cybersecurity product that is built from the ground-up as an enterprise-grade network security service for the smart home. It seamlessly protects the privacy and security of a consumer’s data, devices, home, and family by monitoring the home network 24/7 against cyber threats. It stands out from similar products due to the sweeping levels of comprehensive protection it offers. No other smart home security product provides the same deep multi-layered levels of protection. The Dojo by BullGuard smart home cybersecurity solution includes:
- Dojo (Hardware): A sleekly designed ‘pebble’ that is easy to set up and free to move about the home while its dock remains tucked away with the router. Rings of light on the Dojo pebble illuminate red, yellow, or green when activity is detected on the user’s network.
“Most people don’t consider a security solution until after their information has been hacked and their privacy violated”
- Dojo intelligence: Cyber security engine powered by highly sophisticated artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning technology. Dojo provides a tailored security policy for each device on the home network, enabling constant monitoring and mitigation of both internal and external attacks. It also provides enterprise-class intrusion detection and prevention to identify and block real time attacks, a smart firewall, and encrypted web access to smart devices. Its cloud-based platform continuously analyses device and service patterns to protect a consumer’s privacy even better over time. The more it familiarises itself with a home’s smart devices, the smarter it becomes in detecting, defending, and mitigating against cyber threats and privacy breaches.
“Most people don’t consider a security solution until after their information has been hacked and their privacy violated. We’ve recently seen major privacy breaches caused by compromised devices, including the largest ever Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attacks launched from an IoT botnet,” said Yossi Atias, General Manager IoT Security of BullGuard. “We created Dojo by BullGuard to make it easy for consumers to safeguard and protect their privacy and their family by seamlessly monitoring and protecting all of their smart home devices against security breaches 24/7.”
