Econais ProbMe: Securely Configure Wi-Fi Devices with One Click
Econais Inc, the world’s leading wireless Wi-Fi module solution provider for the Internet of Things, today announced that the ProbMe(TM) secure configuration software feature is available and shipping with Econais Wi-Fi Modules, Development Kits and Reference Designs. ProbMe solves one of the biggest challenges for consumer and commercial networking – how does an end user securely set up and configure new devices on their network as quickly and easily as possible? Think WiSmart(TM).
Econais ProbMe provides an easy, fast and secure way to add new devices to a network. With ProbMe, after the user unpacks and turns on their new device, the device “quietly listens” until the user activates it – no one else knows it is there. This helps prevent hackers from identifying and attacking new and un-configured devices. To activate these new Wi-Fi devices, the user simply sends out a configuration code from their computer, tablet, laptop or smart phone. The configuration code is broadcast to all the new devices, which, after “hearing” the code, automatically configure themselves to the network. Voila! The devices are immediately connected and configured. What makes ProbMe even more valuable is its ability to activate any number of devices at one time. Hundreds of devices could be located throughout a home or office and instead of having to activate each one separately, they all can be activated and configured in just one simple step. Talk about saving a LOT of time, hassle, and risk. Think WiSmart.
