At this week’s IQPC Automotive Cybersecurity conference in Silicon Valley, Dellfer announced the release of ZeroDayGuard, an IoT cyber-security product that enables cloud-connected devices instantly to detect and prevent zero-day hacks or cyber attacks against their products.
 
The California company believes the product will introduce a cost-effective option for manufacturers looking to protect their cloud and IoT connected products intrinsically at build time, avoiding brand damage and remediation costs from hacking or tampering later in their products’ lifecycles. ZeroDayGuard does not use signatures to thwart attacks but validated execution integrity monitoring to lower false negatives and provide real-time alerts upon a hacking event.
 
At the conference, the company’s founder and CEO, James Blaisdell discussed the technology and entered strategic development engagements with OEMs and tier -one suppliers in the automotive industry for the controlled release.
 
“We are very excited to have hit these important milestones in our company’s early lifecycle,” said Blaisdell. “We are also pleased to deepen our relationship with our partners to build next-generation security for automotive. Today, companies releasing products to the public where lives can be at stake, have no way of knowing if an unknown vulnerability in their code has been discovered or hacked until they get a phone call that something has happened.”
 
Dellfer enables product manufacturers to secure their cloud and IoT connected products from zero-day hacking or advanced cyber attacks. Focusing on the automotive cyber security and other IoT markets, ZeroDayGuard can prevent zero-day attacks against unknown vulnerabilities and instantaneously alert manufacturers or device makers to attempted and thwarted hacking events in seconds.
