BullGuard , the multi-award winning consumer security company is set to showcase its new Dojo. This is being pitched as being the world’s most comprehensive smart home cybersecurity solution.
BullGuard recently acquired smart home security pioneer, Dojo Labs and we will soon be able to see the fruits of this union.
The nifty bit of tech looks to make your Internet of Things (IoT) and other tech connected to your home network more secure. The device will be showcased at Mobile World Congress Barcelona from 27 February – 2 March, 2017.
It certainly looks like it has had an impressive start including being honored with the prestigious Good Design award in the safety and security category.
What is Dojo?
Nothing to do with getting your Katas on. Dojo was built from the ground-up as an enterprise-grade network security service for the smart home.
Its purpose is to protect the privacy and security of your data, devices, home and family by monitoring the home network 24/7 against cyber threats.
It stands out from similar products due to the sweeping levels of comprehensive protection it offers. BullGuard says that no other smart home security product provides the same deep multi-layered levels of protection.
The sleekly designed ‘pebble’ is easy to set up and free to move about the home while its dock remains tucked away with the router.
Dojo smartphone app
Of course it has an app. The Dojo app allows users to interact with the Dojo pebble via a simple, intuitive messaging interface.
The cyber security engine is powered by highly sophisticated artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning technology.
The device provides a tailored security policy for each device on the home network. It also provides enterprise-class intrusion detection and prevention to identify and block real time attacks. It also packs a smart firewall, and encrypted web access to smart devices.
Its cloud-based platform continuously analyses device and service patterns to protect a consumer’s privacy even better over time. The more it familiarises itself with a home’s smart devices, the smarter it becomes in detecting, defending and mitigating against cyber threats and privacy breaches.
Yossi Atias, General Manager IoT Security of BullGuard, says:
Most people don’t consider a security solution until after their information has been hacked and their privacy violated… We created Dojo by BullGuard to make it easy for consumers to safeguard and protect their privacy and their family by seamlessly monitoring and protecting all of their smart home devices against security breaches 24/7.”
Dojo price and availability
Dojo by BullGuard will begin shipping in April 2017 and will retail for $199 USD, including 12-months of service.
