Dec 10, 2020
Vdoo Connected Trust Ltd is an Israeli company founded in 2017 that provides security solutions for IoT device manufacturers.
Vdoo Vision, one of Vdoo's products, analyzes firmware (software for controlling computer systems embedded in electronic devices) on IoT devices and provides full visibility into connected devices’ vulnerabilities. It prioritizes the improvement list and suggests solutions, such as "possible attack methods, specific countermeasures, and compliance with national and regional cybersecurity standards." By resolving the listed issues one by one, IoT equipment manufacturers can ensure proper cybersecurity measures. Another advantage of Vdoo Vision is that it does not need to inspect actual devices. Customers only need to upload the firmware onto the cloud for diagnostics. Vdoo ERA, another product, is a device-specific customized ERA software installed in connected devices for protection from cyber-attacks.
The company is backed by prominent investors, including major Japanese companies such as MS&AD Holdings and NTT DoCoMo. It sells solutions to several Japanese customers through its sales partners in Japan, such as Dai Nippon Printing (DNP) and Macnica Networks. In February 2020, the company established Vdoo Japan Co., Ltd. in Tokyo to strengthen its support system for Japanese customers.
Upon establishing the company's Japanese base, JETRO's Invest Japan Business Support Center (IBSC) provided temporary office space and consultation (registration, tax, and labor).
