Everything Set uses real-time AI to understand and secure the data home smart devices are sharing with the world
Everything Set, a home-network security system that monitors and secures your smart device data-sharing activity, today announced their company’s Early Access launch. Backed by artificial intelligence (AI), privacy, and data experts, Everything Set applies statistical analysis and algorithms to monitor smart devices and alert users of potential security risks. By comparing behaviors within and across devices, the service understands connected devices in real time, enabling anyone to be protected against vulnerabilities and problematic network activity. Everything Set uses its machine-scale understanding of device behaviors to uncover unusual activity as it happens, alert users instantly, and provide solutions to remedy detected anomalies. Join Everything Set’s Early Access program, which includes a free Everything Set Box and service for one year, by signing up at our website or downloading the app at the App Store or Google Play.
Traditional home-data security solutions like firewalls and antivirus software are primarily equipped to keep previously identified malware from infiltrating networks. These systems have a critical gap in their efficacy: they do not monitor what information is being shared to the world and do not understand data in context. Everything Set is the first advanced service that solves this modern problem by delivering a device-centric security approach. The company uses real-time analysis of anonymized crowdsourced data, aggregating similar information across all smart devices. After plugging Everything Set into any router, the service monitors how individual devices are behaving while looking for security vulnerabilities—including unknown or suspect IP communications. Through the easy-to-use Everything Set app, users are kept up-to-date with system-wide network analysis and instant alerts of unusual activity as it’s happening. Everything Set then provides solutions that include blocking off rogue communications, helping users keep devices securely updated, as well as other auto-fixes.
“The old way of identifying viruses, cataloging them, and building a firewall against known threats is equivalent to protecting a warehouse with only a chain and padlock,” said Everything Set CEO & Founder David Knudsen. David spent over a decade uncovering patterns and anomalies in crowdsourced time-series data using statistical and AI techniques and understood how effectively they could solve the problem of smart device security and privacy. “Our homes and businesses are unguarded and vulnerable to sophisticated attacks and existing available security measures haven’t kept pace to defend against new, ever-evolving malware. By anonymizing and aggregating information across all users’ devices, we are able to understand and protect our most private information and keep us safe. Everything Set continually evolves as it monitors and protects your home, no matter how smart it becomes.”
“The home is the new data privacy battleground: from your home office, to your thermostat, to your exercise routine—we’re living our entire online life within the confines of our increasingly intelligent homes,” said Phil Black, co-founder of True Ventures and a personal investor in Everything Set. “All of our smart devices are learning our behaviors and it’s critical that we protect what is being disseminated out into the cloud. Everything Set is the bulwark needed to ensure that all devices work in our favor.”
“Legacy security technologies were built for a different time and cannot protect against new exploitations, which are the most advanced we’ve ever seen,” said open-source search innovator Doug Cutting, an Everything Set advisor and investor. “Everything Set’s dynamic, ever-evolving security protocols monitor and remedy sophisticated adversaries that use every trick to compromise your data. I’m thrilled to be on board and helping them chart a new path in what inside-the-home security needs to look like going forward.”
