SafeHouse leverages cloud-based technology to provide military grade protection on endpoints with (and without) the click of a button
SafeHouse has developed a core technology in the cloud that is capable of detecting and preventing cyber threats in real-time - without reducing Internet speed. Using signature detection and AI-driven behavioural analysis engines SafeHouse strives to provide a high degree of protection. The technology can be deployed via VPN tunnel through an application, or we can do an agentless implementation from the Telco / ISP back-end - this does not require any software, or application to be downloaded on the device.
