Exein Announces World-changing Embedded Security Solution
SAN FRANCISCO, California, Nov. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

A few lines of code embedded in the firmware is all it takes to offer 
multi-layer, virtually impenetrable protection for the world's hugely 
vulnerable Internet of Things (IoT) devices. 

Edge security specialist Exein, based in Rome and San Francisco, has developed 
what CEO Gianni Cuozzo describes as "the fastest security countermeasure ever 
built" - an open-source mathematical model that can detect threats autonomously 
at speeds significantly faster than any existing solution. 

Platform agnostic, the Exein Core is a developer tool operating as an embedded 
component from within hardware. Once grafted into firmware, Exein Core uses 
convolutional neural networking to learn the legitimate behaviours of a device. 
Armed with that knowledge, it can then detect anomalies and external threats at 
unprecedented speeds without the need for cloud computing support.

The potential for this world-changing product is enormous. According to 
McKinsey, "the worldwide number of IoT-connected devices is projected to 
increase to 43 billion by 2023". Others predict higher numbers: 100 per person, 
or one trillion by 2025. Firmware is the Achilles Heel - a security soft spot 
that is typically awarded just 1% of protection budgets and continues to offer 
easy ingress for criminals.

"It's not just about thwarting ransom threats," says Cuozzo. "The exploitation 
of firmware can affect our safety too. Aviation, automobiles and home safety 
systems can all be targeted. Exein Core, applied to the firmware of any and all 
IoT equipment at the manufacturing stage or retrofitted to existing devices, 
can stop such attacks. This is a world-changing product that represents an 
entirely new way of approaching IT security." 

Crucial to the integrity of Exein Core's host-based defence mechanism is its 
open-source nature - a feature Cuotto champions with passion. "I believe that 
the mathematical theory driving this innovation has the potential to make life 
safer," he says.
