Internet of things is vast and vulnerable. Sense of F-Secure aims to get him in the same secure network.


For several years, experts have warned of cyber security risks associated with emerging Internet of Things, an extensive network of connected devices people began to bring into their homes. Smart thermostat, coffee maker, television and sound system can make life easier and more customizable, but they also represent a new class of entry points for hackers to get into your home network and steal valuable personal information.

This creates, to use the language of cybersecurity industry, a huge attack surface.

One of the biggest obstacles to the provision of these devices is that to keep them all up to date and patched with the latest security updates takes time. Even then, many IoT devices have built-in security protection. The end result is a hodgepodge of safety standards, the hacker’s paradise.

to the feeling, a new category of device safety, the Finnish giant security F-Secure aims to change that.

Sense intelligent router in combination with software that sits on top of and monitors all connected devices in your home. He reads all the traffic goes to these devices in real time and analyze it using the network of F-Secure cloud security, “the analysts, the engine and repository of information for malware and many other digital threats.”

When a Feeling unwanted or malicious traffic – for example, a botnet is trying to connect to the Smart TV – it just blocks it.

For the development of IoT devices in a house in a secure network, Sense is remarkably elegant solution to the problem of cyber security world has been worrying about for a long time.

feeling that F-Secure says, will be launched in mid-2016, it costs $ 199 for the device and year of service. After that, it will cost $ 8 per month. This is probably more than most people think pay to ensure their devices, but having regard to the risks of the Internet of things, it may be well worth it.
