A Look Back on 2019: Highlights, Achievements and Acknowledgements

December 17, 2019

It has been nearly two years since we launched CUJO AI Platform for network operators. This time has been extremely challenging, and exceptionally rewarding for all of us. This year, CUJO AI experienced immense growth that led to securing over 20 million households and more than 500 million devices, thus reaching unprecedented scale.

Let’s stroll through 12 months of hard work, earnest objectives and remarkable achievements that led us here.

Building Strong Partnerships

Announced Partnerships with Technicolor, AirTies, Avira & Cylance

We are proud of having the opportunity to work side by side with industry leaders. This year, we have strengthened our strategic partnerships, which has had a positive impact on our strategy development and execution.

In 2019, we have announced alliances with Cylance, the leading provider of AI-based, prevention-first security solutions;  and Avira, a multinational security software company.

We have built strategic partnerships with Technicolor, the leading provider of first-class home gateways, set-top-boxes and software that power innovative operator services around home connectivity and entertainment; and AirTies, the most widely deployed provider of managed in-home Wi-Fi solutions to global service providers.
