Security systems are more advanced in some areas of the application, as there are vulnerabilities in others. Redinent Innovations, a Bengaluru-based startup, aims to change this and establish security tools for CCTV cameras and unmanaged IoT devices, which are often exposed to attacks. in cyber.
As the number of IoT devices deployed by businesses grows daily, so do the cyber threats to them. As a result, businesses risk losing their privacy, security, and brand value in the market if they fall victim to IoT-based cyber attacks. Therefore, the Redinent technology is a necessary development.
“Redinent Innovations helps organizations protect their CCTV and other IoT devices against cyber attacks,” said Divaynshu Verma, Co-Founder and CEO of Redinent Innovations. “We offer a platform that helps organizations reduce the risk of cyber attacks on their IoT infrastructure, especially CCTV cameras.”
According to studies, the number of connected IoT devices has already exceeded the population of the world. Unfortunately, the threat of IoT devices is increasing, because there is not much security built into IoT devices. This is a field that is quite challenging because it requires extensive knowledge of protocols, embedded architecture, threat modeling, and near-real-time decision making.
This is where Redinent’s Threat Scanner comes into the picture. Redinent’s threat scanning platform is a profound technological innovation that opens up a new business strategy and opportunity around IoT device security. The technology is heavily influenced by defense and security industry practices and uses some of the best TTPs in cyber defense. “This technology stack within Redinent acts as a protective backbone to ensure the deployment of IoT within the enterprise,” said Arko Dhar, Co-Founder and CTO of Redinent Innovations.
“Redinent is easy to deploy and truly cloud scalable, which means organizations with multi-location operations can use Redinent Scanner centrally to secure their CCTV and IoT endpoints,” said Cdr K Arun, Co-Founder and COO of Redinent Innovations. “It covers the largest number of threat scenarios and the widest range of CCTV/IoT brands, besides evaluating all brand-agnostic features at the protocol level itself,” Verma explained.
The company uses its patented threat detection algorithms to identify threats at multiple levels within endpoint devices and also help remediate these threats. With such a solution, organizations can assess vulnerabilities in their IoT / CCTV devices and close them before a cyber-attack occurs.
The solution is commercially ready. “We are fortunate enough to get early access to some of the biggest brands as our customers and partners. Within five months, we have airports, power plants, SEZs, hospitality and resorts, railway networks, and banks as our clients,” said Verma.
Redinent’s first customer growth came within two weeks of launch, and they had their first five customers in just 120 days of launch! The company has also raised capital funding from angel investors and is in talks with investors to get additional funding.
Today, Redinent is looking to increase its product footprint in critical infrastructure institutions around the world and increase its revenue base. Accordingly, the company is hiring top talent resources with expertise in security and IoT-related product development, UX professionals, and automation engineers.
For a company that was founded a little over a year ago—right in the middle of a pandemic—Redinent has come a long way. Certainly, it is safe to say that Redinent Innovations has built a solid foundation for IoT security in India and abroad.
