CUJO AI, a network security and intelligence company that provides AI-driven protection, privacy and device management solutions, and AirTies, the most widely deployed provider of managed in-home Wi-Fi solutions to global service providers, today announced an alliance to provide cybersecurity and Smart Wi-Fi software solutions for network operators around the world.
Specifically, the two companies will integrate their leading software solutions, making it easier to incorporate Wi-Fi management and enhanced cybersecurity on broadband gateways and in the cloud. Initially, cybersecurity analytics from the CUJO AI Platform will be incorporated into AirTies’ Remote Manager, a cloud-based optimization suite that provides service providers with real-time visibility and historical performance analysis to manage the consumer Wi-Fi experience. The two companies will unify their gateway software agents that can be deployed as a firmware upgrade to new and existing broadband gateways, and they will collaborate on joint business opportunities with service providers.
“The dramatic rise in Internet-of-things devices requires new thinking about home Wi-Fi architecture and the security of those devices and home networks,” said Philippe Alcaras, CEO of AirTies. “CUJO AI is a clear market leader in this area, and we look forward to partnering to combine advanced Wi-Fi management and cybersecurity into a unified software solution. Our combined efforts will make it easier for operators to deploy gateway software and cloud-based management that will enable operators to proactively enhance and protect their subscribers’ home networks.”
“Creating a unique environment for each smart homeowner is imperative to ensure good retention rates and keep customer churn at the minimum,” said Einaras von Gravrock, CEO of CUJO AI. “Together with AirTies, we will be able to offer a uniquely developed AI driven security solution which was built to help Network Operators to reduce costs, save time, decrease customer churn, and improve brand loyalty. CUJO AI and AirTies technology complement each other. AirTies provides unparalleled coverage around the house. It helps to amplify the CUJO AI solutions that identify and protect all devices at home. Combined, our strengths help network operators reduce costs, save time, decrease customer churn, and improve brand loyalty.”
