Partnership will allow service providers to generate new revenue streams by offering security and content management services for home and small-medium business networks
Centennial, CO – August 19, 2020 –
Hitron Technologies, the fastest growing DOCSIS customer premise equipment (CPE) manufacturer in North America, today announced its partnership with SAM Seamless Network, the software-only enterprise-grade cybersecurity solution for unmanaged home networks.
As the number of IoT and connected devices in the home continue to grow, so do security threats. SAM’s research shows devices receive on average 6-8 attacks each day and nearly 60% of IoT devices are vulnerable to medium- or high-severity attacks, and many consumers lack the tools or awareness to protect themselves from such attacks and as a result, consumer IoT devices are attractive, low-hanging fruit for hackers and other cyber criminals.
The partnership will incorporate SAM’s cybersecurity software into Hitron gateways to protect home and small-medium business networks, and all their associated connected devices. Service providers can offer network/IoT security and parental control services and give subscribers peace of mind in the connected home.
“Whether it’s a smart thermostat or baby monitor, a new generation of connected devices are introducing new cyber threats. We are excited to partner with SAM, a global leader in cybersecurity to help protect home networks and families. We want consumers to enjoy the full potential of the connected home as safely and securely as possible,” said Greg Fisher, president at Hitron Technologies Americas.
SAM’s security software will be integrated into the Hitron ecosystem, including HitronCloud, a cloud-based solution that monitors, manages and optimizes home broadband gateway and Wi-Fi networks.
“With many people forced to be home due to COVID-19, attackers are increasingly finding more ways to infiltrate the home and business network via connected devices,” said Sivan Rauscher, CEO and co-founder of SAM. “We are proud to be partnering with Hitron to offer enterprise-grade protection to customers through the Hitron ecosystem.”
