Guard Dog – Protecting You from the ‘Things’ in Your Smart Home

IOT devices are easy ways for hackers to observe you and your families behavior
Each Internet of Things (IoT) or Smart Home device you add creates the probability that someone is hacking your home.  Watching your activities, profiling your activities.  Standard anti-virus and anti-malware don’t protect you. Would you allow someone to sit outside of your house and profile all that is happening in your home day and night?   Traditional routers and firewalls don’t make a difference.

 Guard Dog by A Cloud of Own – protects your smart home and the things within it.

Watch the Guard Dog catch and block a live attack on our lab! View our presentation at Boston New Technologies – December 2018

Voted best new product – Mass Innovations Nights – January 2019. Guard Dog – by a Cloud of My Own places a layer of protection around all of the ‘Smart Home’ devices in your home or business.  In the event that a device is hacked (or an attempt is made to compromise them), we take action and block and/or isolate that device from the others.   We work with all wifi enabled devices and hub.  Check compatibility here Trend Micro has released research papers that supports all of our statements on the risks in Smart Homes. See their research here: So Many Risks, and they are growing
  •  U.S. broadband households now have an average of 9.1 connected devices,” said Brad Russell, Research Director, Connected Home, Parks (1)
  • IoT devices will outnumber the world’s population this year (2017) for the first time (2)
  • Unmanaged Firewalls used in homes provide minimal security for iot / home automation and smart home devices.
  • Intrusion Detection Systems(IDS) and Intrusion Protection Systems (IPS) are rarely used outside of large companies.

** All devices provide potential location for within your home for a hacker to them begin exploting other devices in your network. The explosive growth of the Internet of Things and Smart Home Technologies have dramatically changed the potential security risks on both home and business network.
Within the enterprise, these risks are reduced dramatically through enterprise network and security processes and technologies. In your home, these computers are exposed to a dramatically different environment.   This network is most likely unmanaged, possibly having a firewall with default access credentials, and the machines are commingled with IOT/ home automation devices that have been proven to have extremely limited security in place.  IOT is largely unpatched, unmanaged and ripe for exploitation.
