Scryb’s Cybeats Cybersecurity Platform Supports Android Operating System

Scryb’s Cybeats Cybersecurity Platform Supports Android Operating System Significantly Expanding its Addressable Market Opportunity

TORONTO, July 23, 2021 – Scryb Inc. (“Scryb” or the “Company”) (CSE: RELA, OTCQB: RYMDF, Frankfurt: EIY2) is pleased to announce that its Cybeats cybersecurity platform now supports Android operating systems (“Android”) for Internet of Things (IoT) devices in addition to the wide range of Linux systems supported by the integrated solution.

The number of IoT devices connected today is estimated to be over 10 billion[1] and projected to grow to more than 25 billion within the next decade. Historically Linux has been the dominant OS for simple connected devices but with the recent growth and adoption of more complex applications, Android has grown to control nearly 73% of the worldwide mobile OS market.[2]

The addition of Android device support significantly expands the Cybeats’ addressable market and establishes the platform as one of the few IoT cybersecurity solutions to service the dominant operating system. An internal study including Fortune 500 companies found the Android OS to be particularly popular among the medical connected device ecosystem.

“Manufacturers across IoT industries are scrambling to find solutions to protect themselves and meet the increasing regulatory demand. We are happy to be one of few solutions available to support developers across advanced operating systems.” said Yoav Raiter, CEO Scryb Inc. “The future is connected, and Cybeats offers one of a kind protection for all of the complex operating systems through an agent with a fraction of the operating footprint.”

Cybeats’ powerful lightweight cybersecurity microagent has been successfully installed on Android devices deployed in the field including, first responders, airports, and in corporate and special event settings. The Cybeats solution allows for continuous live-time monitoring that provides alerts to investigate and determine malicious behavior without disrupting normal operating processes and delivers immediate remote firmware upgrades.

Android Market Opportunity

Android was the operating system released by Google in 2005[3], originally developed for use in all of its touchscreen devices, tablets, and cell phones. The system notably offers open-source licenses with ready-made and low-cost customizable features. Android OS actively operates on 3 billion devices globally[4], and boasts a dominant 73% of the mobile devices market.[5]

CapitalG[6], the investment fund managed by Google, invested $100 USD million into Armis[7], a cybersecurity company that was purchased for $1.1 Billion USD[8] in 2020. Google also recently invested $450M million USD into ADT home security[9] to boost its connected IoT defenses[10]. In a recent medical device security industry article, Inegra Sources stated that “...the most prominent Linux-based OS is Android, which is an absolute winner in the market of mobile operating systems.”[11]

RECENT NEWS: Scryb recently announced an engagement with Canada’s largest medical technology developer, StarFish Medical to provide the Cybeats platform for high-valued connected medical devices. The engagement includes the SBOM software to monitor security of the products being developed and can be licensed by StarFish clients for continued protection.
