Very announced today that we have received a 2020 IoT Evolution Security Excellence Award for our work on Zobi Hedgehog from IoT Evolution World, the leading publication covering IoT technologies.

Ben Wald, Founder at Very

“We enjoy working with companies that have an inspiring product idea and vision. We’re excited to be a part of how Zobi is revolutionizing cybersecurity in the consumer IoT and smart home space with the world’s first home intelligence device.”

The award honors organizations delivering exemplary software or hardware solutions which secure IoT devices and networks.

Hedgehog is a brand-agnostic “digital guardian for the home.” The standard version of Hedgehog makes it possible for customers to easily and safely add a guest Wi-Fi hotspot to their homes, where visitors need only tap their device onto the Hedgehog device for secure network access.

Hedgehog Pro, meanwhile, uses Zobi™ Home Intelligence to detect and prevent cybercrime across a user’s entire home network.

“The solutions selected for the IoT Evolution Security Excellence Award exemplify innovation driving the fast-growing Internet of Things marketplace. It is my honor to congratulate Very and Zobi for their innovative work and contribution to this rapidly evolving industry,” said Ken Briodagh, Editorial Director IoT Evolution World.

“It is my pleasure to recognize Hedgehog, an innovative solution that earned Very and Zobi the 2020 IoT Evolution Security Excellence Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “I look forward to seeing more innovation from both companies in the future.”
