Sericon Technology is a Toronto-based software firm that provides a cloud-based security platform for testing and fixing security vulnerabilities in home routers, networks, and IoT devices. Our clients are ISPs and router and IoT vendors. We increase security for end-users while reducing the threats for service and product providers that erode their brands, cost them customers, and expose them to lawsuits.
We address the growing risks of both router vulnerabilities and the exploding, but largely unsecured, consumer IoT space. With over 700M routers, and eight billion IoT devices currently deployed, the opportunities for hackers to exploit these devices are immensely tempting. A recent survey by Tripwire/DR found that 96 percent of CSOs expect IoT attacks to increase in 2017.
To help identify and fix exposures to these threats – we license our testing and reporting platform to ISPs and OEM our solution for product vendors. We then provide free testing applications for end users and provide access to support materials to fix identified and emerging vulnerabilities. Testing applications are available for all popular mobile and desktop platforms.
RouterCheck is the first consumer tool for protecting home routers, which are the gateway to home networks. A home router is the home computer with the least protection, but the greatest vulnerability. If it is attacked, all the devices connected to it are at risk. RouterCheck is like an anti-virus system for routers. It protects routers from hackers around the world, who have begun to target and attack them.
