Exein looks to tackle the huge security threat posed by connected smart-devices and the vulnerabilities carried within their firmware. IoT and smart-connected platforms are well-secured and optimized using the most recent security standards, however, firmware is not. Hardware manufacturers are racing to make the cheapest hardware possible. The fall-out from this is that insufficient budget is set aside for the firmware and only 1% is allocated to security, leaving huge vulnerabilities.
Exein provides a world-first firmware security software and middleware solution that can be injected like a vaccine inside the hardware in order to defend it from inside, working directly within the firmware at a lower level.
We are proud to announce the largest investment into Italy’s cybersecurity sector to date: a €2 Million Series A round of funding into EXEIN.
