Intelligence and insights for the smart-home industryJune 2021
Welcome to Plume IQ, our monthly reveal of data-driven intelligence and consumer insights from more than 2.5 billion connected devices, and over 48 million locations, managed by Plume’s cloud platform.
Which devices show increasing needs for cyber-protection?
In the home-working era, consumers are more reliant on rock-solid cyber-security than ever. However, Plume data suggests that surprisingly it’s not the device types more strongly associated with productivity, such as computers and smartphones, that have the most rapidly increasing cyber-protection needs. Our data shows that in the U.S., entertainment devices, and specifically Smart TVs, have seen the highest percentage growth in cyber-threats blocked—238% and 433% respectively. Meanwhile, Europe tops the geo chart with 658 threats blocked on average per household in May 2021.
