While in stealth mode, SAM partnered with Bezeq The Israeli Telecommunication Corp Ltd., Israel’s largest telecom provider, to install its technology on over 200,000 routers in the country, including routers already installed in homes.
"The growing number of connected devices in homes is increasing the exposure to online threats — most consumers are unaware of the risks and do not know how to properly secure their household network,” said Bruce Taragin, managing director at Blumberg Capital, in a statement.
