May 01 2017
Cloudflare Orbit, a newly launched security solution for IoT devices. It's a network solution that creates a secure and authenticated connection between an IoT device and its origin server. Orbit basically adds a buffer between devices and the Internet of Things.
Cloudflare is a content delivery network that promises speed and security for websites.
A major benefit of Cloudflare Orbit is that it blocks remote code execution and malicious threats across IoT devices at the network level rather than the device level.
By keeping bad requests from getting to the devices, Orbit prevents them from leaking data or launching DDoS attacks.
Other benefits Cloudflare Orbit promises include:
1. Cost-effective firmware updates for IoT devices directly from cache
2. Compression & performance optimizations to reduce data transmission
3. Secure & authenticated data transfer
+ The solution can be implemented in IoT devices used by jet turbines, oil rigs, cars, cameras, and clothing companies.
+ Orbit allows device manufacturers to instantly deploy “virtual patches”.
+ The company's total equity funding has reached $182.05M in 5 Rounds from 12 Investors.
