Icon Labs announced the availability of Floodgate at Home, the industry’s first software firewall that protects connected Smart Home devices from Internet-based attacks. Floodgate at Home features the Icon Labs suite of security products that provides device protection, management and incident reporting to home users and service providers via a secure web page. Floodgate at Home is an OEM software product licensed and embedded by manufacturers of Smart Home IoT devices.
Manufacturers can embed Floodgate in the tiny processor and communication chips found in Smart Home devices like thermostats, window alarms, temperature sensors, home health sensors, etc. Once the device is connected to the web, the end user, home system integrator or service provider sets up the security arrangement - limiting access to a few specific people, phone numbers, or the IP address of a specific laptop or tablet.
Floodgate at Home protects home premises equipment against the growing number of Internet-based attacks. By stopping communication from unapproved devices, Floodgate at Home blocks unauthorized access, protects against automated hacking drones, and can even prevent the device from being discovered by hackers.
Floodgate at Home is available now. It is designed for use in embedded systems and can be used with operating systems such as Embedded Linux, INTEGRITY, VelOSity, VxWorks, LynxOS, MQX, or eCos, or devices without an operating system.
