There is a silent but real threat growing in homes and businesses. The growth of connected devices is increasing our vulnerability to cyber-attacks that can violate our privacy, expose us to identity theft, and expose our kids to inappropriate content from the Internet. Consider the following statistics:
- The average home now has over seven connected devices
- There are currently 20 billion connected devices globally, projected to grow to 74 billion by 2025
- Three out of four of those devices are vulnerable to being hacked
- World's largest ever DDOS attack was carried out by an army of hacked smart devices in 2016
- Ransomware emails grew 6000% in 2016
- Kids as young as five years old have stumbled on to inappropriate material online by accident
- 88% of parents are concerned about their kid's online activities
The cyber security market is expected to be a $198 billion market with just the wireless network security segment alone growing to nearly $24 billion.
Gryphon offers a cloud managed network based protection service platform that's powerful yet simple. The platform involves an elegant high performance WiFi router system, a simple to use App, and machine learning that will continuously improve over time and usage.
The platform is simple to setup and use because there is no additional software that need to be installed on the end devices. The protection works at the network layer to block unwanted content, malware, and intrusions for any connected device on the network.
Gryphon is not only suitable for families, but also for small businesses by protecting their valuable data from cyber attacks and preserving productivity through blocking inappropriate content while at work. Because the solution can be set up in just minutes without an IT manager or expensive and complicated hardware, small businesses can now afford enterprise level protection for their network.
5 patents have been filed that cover the technology used in the platform and additional IP will be pursued with a proven team that has a track record of launching innovative products like the MiFi mobile hotspot and the Apple iPod.
