Firedome Home brings cybersecurity as service capabilities to smart home platforms

Firedome Inc., the creators of the endpoint cybersecurity solutions for home IoT manufacturers, and Universal Electronics Inc. (NASDAQ: UEIC) have announced that the Firedome Home solution, will be launched as part of Universal Electronics´ Nevo® Butler platform, the companies said.

Firedome Home adds Cybersecurity Protection, Home Digital Diary, and Enhanced Remote Customer Support to the UEI product.

Firedome solutions are designed to close critical security gaps that are a byproduct of the IoT era. IoT devices have become “low hanging fruit” for attackers for their low cost of attack and lack of supervision which make them a common target for hackers. Cryptojacking, DDoS and ransomware attacks are only a few examples of cyber crimes that are threatening the home IoT ecosystem.

Firedome is built to secure billions of home IoT devices and prevent the next cyber-catastrophe. As Home IoT device companies are at risk of being held responsible for harmful breaches and attacks, Firedome has tailored its offering to their business and product needs. Firedome was founded by top security veterans with offices in New-York and Tel-Aviv and employs multinational cyber, embedded, research and analysis experts.
