IXDen Takes a Huge Step toward Securing Smart Homes
As the number of connected devices increases every day, there is a rising demand for robust security solutions.
FREMONT, CA: The rapid proliferation of the internet of things (IoT) has led to a rise in data breaches. Hence, it has become imperative for organizations to secure their connected devices against attackers. However, business enterprises are not the only ones at risk. The Statista Research Department predicts that 30 billion IoT devices in everyday usage by the year 2020, including smart home devices, smartphones, wearable technology, home appliances, and cars will need protection. To help smart homeowners protect their gadgets, IXDen recently launched the new 'IXDen Smart Homes.'
The robust security solution developed by IXDen is designed to protect billions of IoT devices from cyberattacks, tampering, and data manipulation. The automated solution leverages behavioral biometrics and multifactor authentication bolstered by artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to secure the endpoint devices, including cameras, smart thermostats, smart routers, baby sensors, and other smart appliances.
Zion Harel, Co-Founder & Co-CEO of IXDen, said, "As more and more smart home devices hit the market place, consumers are increasingly opening themselves up to significant risk. 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. As this massive data breach highlighted, 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. Our innovative and unique solutions for securing IoT devices enable our customers to secure their smart home devices, and give them the peace of mind that their personal data and lives remain secure and private."
The company delivers IoT software solutions integrated with the latest, patent-pending security technology to secure the IoT infrastructure of organizations and businesses. It creates dynamic biometric identity and multifactor authentication for IoT devices using proprietary topological mathematical models, statistics, AI and ML.
"With the increased volume and sophistication of today's cyberattacks, security in homes has become much more relevant," Harel added. "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. With this announcement, IXDen is taking a huge step forward to assure that this bright IoT future does not become a security nightmare.";
