Make connected home security as easy as plugging in a router

Issue 7 2021 Cyber Security, IT infrastructure

Cybersecurity provider F-Secure, KAON Broadband and Incognito, have announced a new combined offering that delivers a fully integrated end-to-end connected home security offering with endless expansion capabilities.

The joint proposition enhances service delivery, remote management and security for communication service providers by combining KAON’s Quantum Platform, Incognito’s Digital Experience (DX) Auto Configuration Server solution and F-Secure SENSE.

“For service providers, routers aren’t just connectivity hardware any more. They’re the key to both securing their customers’ devices and delivering the value-added services that ensure future success,” said Steven Offerein, director, business development at F-Secure. “Service providers want the best-in-class solution but have challenges delivering the services individually. This collaboration makes it possible to roll out a new connected home security offering in weeks, not months.”

KAON’s Quantum open standard platform enables service providers to seamlessly add new services. The app store features a cross-section of services available through an open source-based licence-free platform.

Incognito’s DX Auto Configuration Server solution ensures containerised services on the routers get installed, activated and are easily updated so that F-Secure SENSE always provides best protection capabilities against the ever-changing threat landscape.

“Remote management is a foundational delivery mechanism that changes the game for service providers who want to maximise the value of routers by offering dynamic value-added solutions like connected home security and other virtualised applications for smart connected homes and Internet of Things (IoT) for enterprises,” said Pete Koat, chief operating officer at Incognito. “Incognito’s solution comes with a set of features that make it easier for broadband service providers to enter the exciting new market of smart home services using USP. Even more importantly, it’s an enabler for future growth.”

F-Secure SENSE allows consumers to easily protect and easily manage the security of the internet-enabled devices in their home - from computers to smart TVs to baby monitors.
