At Dellfer, we do one thing:
We Protect Brands by Protecting their IoT Connected Devices
Protecting Branded Products starts with Protecting Code from the inside out.
Industrial environments and consumer products are increasingly cloud connected and make up the Internet-of-Things fabric. These products utilize software for the connectivity and software for the advanced functions they enable for consumers. Unfortunately, all software has vulnerabilities, and finding them and remediating them is a big problem. Developers are under the gun to release code faster than ever and expertise in security is not their main focus.
Dellfer changes the game on this difficult problem with a new security solution that transforms the world of IoT embedded code. Developers no longer have to become experts in security or worry that their code is attackable through a buffer overflow vulnerability or other similar weakness. At Dellfer, we’re long time experts in security and we’ve made adding continuous and deep context protection as easy as one compile time operation from the developer. Now that’s special.
Dellfer’s solution is a fundamentally new way of looking at creating unhackable code, from the inside out. Rather than bolt on security after the fact or approach the problem with signatures, Dellfer instruments code automatically to be validated at execution time in a whitelist fashion. This creates unprecedented opportunities to have deep visibility into every attack and have new ways to stop even the most heinous of attacks. We live and breathe the hard stuff so branded manufacturing developers don’t have to.
Our vision is that all of the world’s connected cars and IoT devices can work as intended and be protected indefinitely without the need for signatures or patches.
We’re always on the look out for top technologists and talent that share our vision. While we are fully staffed at the moment, please share your background if you feel passionate about joining your team.
