Bloomberg: Most Connected Devices are Easy to Hack. This Company Says it Can Fix That.

Most smart, connected devices are often easy to hack because they have low-power, low-resource processors, making current methods of security impractical or impossible. As a result, these devices, and the networks they are connected to, are vulnerable to attack. SecureRF has an answer–its solutions are aimed specifically at protecting the low-power processors that run internet-connected appliances and other…
