Named a cool vendor in the connected home by Gartner earlier this year ("Cool Vendors in the Connected Home, 2016"), Israel-based Dojo Labs has developed a highly innovative offering that includes powerful home network security technologies, managed through an easy-to-use mobile app, coupled with a cloud-based platform that utilizes proprietary machine learning algorithms to detect and block threats and anomalies.

"More than 4 billion consumer devices are connected to the internet today, and this number is growing exponentially. Until now, the security and privacy of these devices has been essentially non-existent, leaving our most precious data and possessions exposed," said Paul Lipman, CEO at BullGuard. "BullGuard and Dojo share a common vision for solving this critical market need, and for delivering the products our customers need to keep them safe".

The Internet of Things has moved rapidly from an early adopter market into the mainstream, but in doing so has introduced a range of new security concerns for consumers. Recent BullGuard research highlighted the scale of the problem and the concerns that many people have about the security of their connected devices. 66% of UK survey respondents said they are highly concerned about the security of connected devices, while 72% do not know how to secure them properly. In the US, 58% expressed security concerns while 61% said they don't know how to secure their IoT devices.

"The transformative promise of smart homes can only be truly realized once the security problem has been solved," said Yossi Atias, Dojo Labs co-founder. "I am delighted to be combining forces with BullGuard at this pivotal juncture in the evolution of our industry."

"BullGuard's promise to our customers is that we keep it simple and we keep you safe, for which we've been recognized in our recent sweep of prestigious national awards" continued Lipman. "With the acquisition of Dojo Labs we look forward to delivering the highest level of protection to our customers across their entire connected lives."

Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures.

It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities."

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability.

We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year.
