Why you should care about IoT security in your smart home
Maybe you are just starting to play with smart devices, or maybe you already have a fully integrated smart home and are enjoying the benefits? Wherever you are at in your IoT journey, hackers are already two steps in front of you. There are more and more cases of smart devices being hacked, and this is due to a range of factors, including the general ecosystem that smart devices operate within. The technology is advancing at such a rate that creating standardised solutions and adaptive practices are outdated before anyone can even get a grasp on how to implement them. You often have no idea where your data is going, and the interconnectedness of these devices creates a plethora of weak points across an entire network. Many devices have third-party vendors integrated into the service you’re using, and this again creates, even more, potential holes in your network security.
Almond Smart Security’s IoT solution
Our add-on IoT subscription service for the Almond 3 not only detects devices prone to outside hacks but also alerts you in case one of your IoT devices is behaving suspiciously. Our IoT security solution scans all your devices for vulnerabilities and monitors the outbound traffic for a range of IoT devices like Google Home and Amazon Alexa. This ensures that all your Internet-connected devices will be safe from hacks and bot attacks as your Almond will alert you if any of your devices are behaving suspiciously.
