AKITA | Instant Privacy for Smart Homes

$884,254

Connected to a LAN port on your router, Akita scans your network for any unusual activity and immediately shuts it down. All-the-while letting you know an attempt was made to invade your privacy. Akita uses military-grade security protection that’s been retrofitted for the home. Then, if you run into any issues, we can remotely preserve and restore your privacy with the help of our always on-call privacy experts at Axi.us.

Akita uses threat intelligence, behavioral analysis, machine learning and doesn't slow your connection at all. Importantly, it doesn't use deep packet inspection.

 

 

 

 

Every Akita Kickstarter Reward comes with security updates for free, for life.  Each backer will also receive a month of free security expert assistance.

    

  

 

 

Akita's security is tested by CyberInt

What is that? The IPS security method means that Akita analyses sources that IoT devices should be communicating with and instantly flags any anomalies. If anything comes up, our experts at Axi.us are on standby for any of your security concerns. Unlike some riskier solutions, we don't utilize DPI (Deep Packet Inspection).

Risks and challenges

While there are always risks & challenges with creating and delivering a brand new product, we've minimized both by having the entire process, from production to delivery, already set and arranged.

We have already signed agreements with key suppliers and manufacturers. The app is already being tested, our system has proven itself to be very effective and we've partnered with the experienced experts at Axi.us to provide on-demand security and privacy assistance.

We have the technical expertise and previous experience in product development, security infrastructure, and technical assistance to execute efficiently. This, along with our strategic partnerships with experienced crowdfunding and fulfillment experts leaves little room for error and ensures a very quick delivery.
