Extortion, data theft, sabotage - when cybercriminals hijack devices on the Internet of Things, the consequences can be devastating. The risk for companies is high, because industrial IoT devices are preferred targets for cyber attacks. Security vulnerabilities due to a lack of updates play a central role in this. To make the Internet of Things more secure, the Stuttgart-based start-up asvin.io has developed a solution that secures and monitors the software lifecycle from development and distribution to operation on devices.
Bitahoy develops a cybersecurity solution for smart home appliances. The Bitahoy Watchdog can be plugged into any home network to monitor and protect all your internet connected devices. The Watchdog contains an intrusion prevention system that can detect and block network attacks in real-time without configuration. The system further provides the user with additional tools to preserve their privacy and security in their digital home, such as filtering malicious or inappropriate content.
