ROME, ITALY, 13/11/2019 – Exein has been selected by Startup Grind, powered by Google for Startups, for the Startup Exhibition in the Grind category at the 2020 Startup Grind Global Conference held February 11-12th in Silicon Valley.
Exein is the first Open Source security framework for IoT, SCADA firmware systems. It operates as an embedded component from within the hardware, acting from the firmware’s core and stopping any external threats, without the need for cloud computing support.
The Italian startup, unique in Europe and among the 5 in the world, 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, the 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.
