Reposify, a cyber-sensing company, has launched a platform to research all devices available on the Internet in real time.
Reposify’s platform enables enterprises and governments to gain insights about devices worldwide through a Google-like search engine. This search engine has an API that allows developers to build products based on Reposify insights.
Reposify’s team has built a scalable cluster that constantly discovers new devices connected to the public Internet. For each device, Reposify determines the type, for example, routers, webcams, and industrial devices, such as smart building sensors.
The platform also finds devices’ relationships with other devices and people and tries to detect what technologies exist on each device, such as an accessible database, web server, or specific operating system.
BI companies have a hard time analyzing technology markets, quantifying market penetration, and identifying new global trends. With Reposify, however, BI companies will be able to perform smart and accurate competitive analysis.
For example, businesses can use Reposify to determine how many Cisco routers are being used in each country by model and version. Governments can even use Reposify to enforce export laws by finding devices being used illegally or identifying locally manufactured devices that are being used in countries where they are banned.
