Our start was driven by the need to bring strong security to consumers. RATtrap was our first product launched in 2017 and won "Top Security Innovation" for Security by Popular Science.
Mirai, Satori, BrickerBot and IoT_reaper – what do these names have in common? These are botnets, still very active on the internet, targeting home routers and devices connected to those routers. These botnets are not about to go away anytime soon. Quite the contrary - they are going to get more sophisticated and effective at inflicting damage on the Internet at massive scale. For IoT device vendors, security and privacy has always been an afterthought and consequently, consumers are being exposed to constant threats. IoT security is a nascent market today but is poised for massive growth as IoT devices proliferate in homes and business alike. Securing these devices is a daunting challenge but a massive opportunity. We are at ground zero of this. “IoT Defense” is not just our name, we live and breathe this stuff every day. Working towards our mission of securing the Internet of Things, we launched our highly rated consumer product, RATtrap which won the Popular Science Top Security Innovation Award. But that is just the beginning, we have pipeline full of exciting products and you could be a part of that journey. Our founding team has more than four decades of combined experience in information security. Throughout our careers, we have built and shipped commercial security products used by millions of consumers all over the planet. At IoT Defense, we did it again, going from an idea on paper to successful product launch which entailed designing and building hardware, embedded software, cloud backend, Web UI, mobile apps, threat intelligence pipeline in less than 18 months. An impressive feat that was made possible by the team’s knowledge, experience, dedication and ability to execute. Being a part of this team will entail a constant flow of challenges, learning on your feet and non-stop fun while you are at it.
