The IoT Defense Story
While the past decade has seen huge investments in the enterprise security space, very few of these advancements have percolated down to the consumer and to their devices at home.
Drawing from their vast experience in the commercial and government security space and the deep insights that come with the territory, the founders of IoT Defense have made it their mission to apply their collective knowledge to protect the average consumer from online threats.
With their first product RATtrap, the IoT Defense team has built a platform to deliver the benefits of enterprise class security and privacy but without the complexity, to the home consumer.
IoT Defense was conceptualized in March 2015, incorporated in August of that year and have delivered the first subscription free consumer security device within a short span of one and a half years. Since its inception, IoT Defense has chosen to forego any outside investment and instead build the product solely from personal financing from its founding team.
