CUJO is the first smart device created for the specific purpose of protecting your connected home devices from various forms of cyber attacks including hacks, viruses, malware and phishing.

A few years ago, most of us had one or at most two computers at home. Now however, our homes are filled with connected devices -- and not just laptops, tablets and smartphones either. Many modern homes now make use of devices such as smart thermostats, smoke alarms, light bulbs and the like. Whilst offering wonderful convenience and functionality, these devices are vulnerable to being hacked into if improperly protected. This can lead to users having their data stolen, devices damaged and privacy compromised, which can lead to both virtual and physical harm.

It's safe to say that while our use of connected technologies has grown at warp speed, our ability to protect them from nefarious intrusion has lagged behind -- until now. CUJO allows you to rest easy in the knowledge that your devices and home network are completely shielded from attacks at all times.

The device works by acting as a gateway between your devices and their Internet connection, rather than being built into any one device the way traditional security software is. This allows it to secure all your devices, ranging from your laptops and tablets to your smart thermostats and security cameras.



Indeed CUJO offers a more adaptive and reliable form of connected security, by employing an intelligent, proactive approach when your home network is attacked -- rather than relying on libraries of known viruses and malware issues to figure out what to do.

Ultimately, the CUJO system ensures that you can get the most out of the Internet of Things without worrying about your privacy or security. Seeing as how as many as 70% of connected devices suffer from major security flaws, there's clearly a need for a system like CUJO that delivers protection and peace of mind without intruding into your day-to-day use of your devices.
