What we solve

Reliability and security of the Internet of Things (IoT) are paramount to the next generation applications such as smart grids, smart buildings, smart cities, smart agriculture, smart homes, and smart manufacturing. However, due to a lack of effective and efficient tools, IoT companies worldwide spend significant money and effort to handle failures and security violations in the field.

How we solve

SensorHound™ offers Internet of Things (IoT) specific software products and services that significantly reduce development and operational costs of the IoT. Our software products automatically detect failures, security vulnerabilities and performance issues in the field as well as provide detailed information to quickly diagnose the root cause. Our solutions are based on award-winning and patent-pending technology developed over 10 years by leading IoT researchers.
