Hedgehog, the world’s first ‘whole home’ cybersecurity device! This ‘digital guardian’ for the home, protects you where firewalls and anti-virus software can’t!
The cybersecurity at all levels
The first of its kind, Hedgehog works alongside a households’ existing firewalls, anti-virus software, and other home security products, as it takes a holistic 360-degree view of the home – shielding all the people, devices and networks within.
Hedgehog protects the entire home network and all IoT devices – from phones and fridges, PCs, speakers, webcams and nanny-cams, to tablets and Smart TVs – so you have less to worry about.
A functional and contemporary design
Setting it apart from competitors, Hedgehog’s high-quality sculptural design has been created to feel like a piece of homeware rather than a functional technology device. The device is available in five sleek interior-friendly colours, and so smart that it installs itself and simply connects to an existing Wi-Fi connection.
Suitable for any home with an Internet connection and multiple wi-fi enabled devices, Hedgehog keeps watching over the entire household using home intelligence technology to identify anything out of the ordinary, alert the homeowner via an app and then neutralise threats quickly and effectively, protecting the data and information of those living inside.
The importance of cybersecurity at home
Research has shown that approximately 30% of all smart home devices are hacked – and hackers can extract information such as passwords and credit card details. In fact, right now 1.8bn passwords are being sold on the dark web. Once into your system, hackers can also monitor daily habits and use this information to target homes and those living within them.
Scott Lever, Founder of Hedgehog, said: “Many people think anti-virus software or firewalls stop cybercrime, but they only protect PCs. We have so many connected devices in the home from nanny cams to smart fridges, digital doorbells and games consoles, that people don’t consider are all potential targets.”
“After being a victim of identity theft myself, and with a background in IT, I wanted to create a truly unique and pioneering solution to bring cybersecurity to consumers without needing to understand the technology. Hedgehog is simple, smart and secure and offers complete protection to ensure our homes and the loved ones within them are kept away from harm.”
