A consumer cybersecurity product company Dojo by BullGuard has launched its Dojo Intelligent IoT Vulnerability Scanner. It’s described as a free-to-use mobile app that scans all of the IoT devices connected to your home Wi-Fi network – such as laptops, web cameras, smart locks, smart alarms, Philips Hue Lights, Amazon Echo, and the router. It detects which IoT devices are at risk of cybersecurity flaws. Available on iOS (pictured) and Android, the app performs security risk assessments by scanning and analysing vulnerabilities at the device level, and then provides a Network Security Score that predicts the likelihood of a significant breach in the user’s Wi-Fi network.
Yossi Atias, GM, IoT Security at BullGuard, said the scanner makes enterprise-grade cybersecurity accessible to everyone, everywhere. “Consumers can now scan their Smart Home for vulnerabilities and access real-time threat intelligence gathered about globally known vulnerabilities for each of their devices all in one place in a single app. Our new Intelligent Scanner app offers consumers a free and easy-to-use way to see all of the connected devices on their home network – along with those devices that are at the greatest security risk – so consumers can take action to protect their Smart Home from cybersecurity breaches.”
As for how the app works, it scans the user’s home Wi-Fi network without having to install any software or connect any devices to their router, and uses combination of local and cloud-based intelligent detection engines for device discovery. The app provides the user with full visibility of their home network by identifying all connected devices on their network and provides the user with a view of the Wi-Fi network and all its connected devices.
