The emergence of the Internet of Things – or IoT for short – has brought with it a massive growth in cyber security issues. The headlines keep coming daily, with very real privacy, security, and economic consequences, to both individuals and businesses. There are already 7 Billion IoT devices in the world, and, according to Ericsson, by 2022 there will be 17.6 Billion – on average, two for every human. McKinsey estimates that this massive army of devices will have an economic impact of at least $4 Trillion, with some estimates pointing to $11 Trillion – to give an idea of the scale of those amounts, it’s the GDP of Japan at the low end and the GDP of China at the high end of the estimate.
In a nutshell: the stakes are very high — which makes it a high risk/high reward target for hackers. Suavei was formed by a team of seasoned cybersecurity experts that share one common set of beliefs: first, our core belief (and purpose) is that this army of IoT devices can and must be secured against misuse by criminal organizations and rogue nations. In other words, we believe that securing them is both feasible and an imperative to prevent massive socio-economic losses.
Second, we believe that the process of securing them can be easy and user friendly, and can be done without sacrificing freedom.
Third, we believe that the burden of securing them should be in the hands of manufacturers and service providers, not the end users.
Finally, we believe in a world where IoT devices continue to improve quality of life, without a dark cloud of fear hanging over its users.
We are achieving that vision and catering to that set of beliefs by creating and developing an IoT Security Intelligence Platform that makes sense of and takes action based on a wealth of cyber security information it collects. A platform that leverages the best technologies – including Blockchain and Machine Learning – to stay ahead of the hackers, and scale to meet the explosive growth of IoT devices. A product that is easy to use, user friendly, easy to deploy, and doesn’t limit the freedom of the end users. Our product is for any Enterprises who have IoT devices in their networks or put IoT devices in other people’s networks: Service Providers, Installers, Manufacturers – not for consumers.
Our technology can assess all Internet connected devices or IoT devices. It provides a security risk rating – which can be used to certify a device as safe (or not) — as well as the potential impact analysis if the devices were compromised and recommendations to remediate and secure those devices.
We offer all of this in a SaaS product called Suavei IoT Security.
This product is a flexible, easy to use service hosted in the public cloud – we’ve started with AWS, but we’re cloud agnostic, meaning we can move anywhere our customers need us to. We provide a rich API — that our front-end leverages — so we can enable our partner ecosystem.
It can be accessed via a powerful Web front-end we created, or directly through a rich, flexible REST API.
Most importantly – you do not need any hardware installed wherever the IoT devices are; all testing can be done remotely. Truly frictionless.
