The key to smart home security
As cybercriminals evolve new ways to wreak havoc in smart homes, it’s imperative that ISPs stay one step ahead. Plume takes a multi-layered approach to security, providing services that act across every potential threat area from anomaly detection and device quarantining, to our newly launched, cyber-intrusion protection. Analysis of data taken from the Plume Cloud showed that 87% of households were attacked, 85% of those attacks were DNS-based, while preventing dangerous outbound and inbound IP events accounted for 37% and 8% respectively.
