iENSO | March 09, 2021

iENSO, a leading provider of embedded vision systems, and Firedome, an end-to-end cybersecurity provider for IoT brands and CES Innovation Award winner, announced today a partnership to protect connected devices with embedded vision.

The current explosive growth in connected embedded vision devices as well as the increasing demand for vision data processing have given a new platform to hackers and cyberattacks, compromising data security and user privacy. Firedome and iENSO's partnership will deliver a new generation of embedded vision systems, with built-in cybersecurity and privacy.

iENSO is an embedded vision system provider focused on Edge AI and cloud connectivity. It packs a global network of design, engineering and manufacturing expertise into every embedded vision system, module and component.

Firedome is the world's first provider of real-time endpoint cybersecurity for IoT devices, which have become common targets for hackers. Founded by security veterans, the endpoint solution includes a lightweight software agent and a cloud-based AI engine collecting and monitoring the device to provide end-to-end protection against hacks or device breaches.

The iENSO-Firedome partnership will set a new standard for protected embedded vision devices. The advanced cyber protection provided by Firedome is well aligned with iENSO's goal to enable IoT and products companies to build vision-based decision making into their products. The launch of protected embedded vision systems ensures that consumers will benefit from the highest level of privacy and cybersecurity protection in the market today. This approach provides end-to-end monitored cybersecurity protection, fully encrypted data and video, and the ability to protect and remediate the increasingly common attempts to access networks through IoT devices.
