About NeuroMesh
IoT has permeated the electric grid, medical devices and many consumer products, which all use low-memory and low-powered processors that cannot be protected by traditional antivirus solutions. Critical infrastructure and their industrial control systems have been shown to be vulnerable to cyberattacks, as seen in the high profile attacks of the Ukrainian grid and last week's global attack that exploited Microsoft Windows software used by healthcare, government and institutional networks. Founded on the premise of helping to secure these critical systems,  Greg Falco of MIT CSAIL, MIT Sloan School of Management's Caleb Li and their team developed NeuroMesh enabling the technologies of blockchain and AI to vaccinate IoT devices. The target markets for NeuroMesh include security cameras, medical devices and industrial control systems.
