Smart devices have become such common household items that in the near future, having a fully smart home will be the norm rather than a mere luxury. But with developers rushing to release buzz-worthy gadgets to the market, security features sometimes take a backseat, leaving them vulnerable to threats, like data exfiltration and cyber breachers.
The privacy of Smart TVs has recently been highlighted, with reports in the United States that some TV manufacturers have a backdoor ‘security flaw’, placing user’s data at risk. To prevent such attacks, Samsung employs the latest cutting-edge technologies and layers of security to ensure the best possible protection for sensitive user data.
Important information, such as usernames, passwords, and email addresses, need to be secure at all times in all the devices. In its bid to protect such sensitive data, Samsung guarantees that their Smart TVs have no security-bypassing backdoors left open to any form of cyber-attack with its 3-Stage Model Security Care Service Solution.
Here are the 3 separate stages of security that keep user data information protected and secure in 2020 Samsung Smart TVs:
- Service Security Stage: This is the first layer of security for 2020 Samsung Smart TVs. In this stage, intruders cannot attack a user’s network as it blocks phishing sites on the Internet from accessing devices where the data are stored. An added security bonus is that this layer of security detects any form of intrusion from malicious codes.
- Platform Security Stage: In this layer of security, important data – such as your user account and password information – is encrypted prior to its storage. Through a standardized encryption process, the data stored remains protected when communicating with external servers to prevent hackers from stealing user information. The Platform Security Stage likewise detects and blocks any malicious apps and unauthorized files trying to access devices.
- Hardware Security Stage: In this final security stage, information leaks are prevented by physically segregating operational spaces at the hardware level. A Smart TV’s operating system (OS) and services remain protected so the device can boot safely.
Some security features, on the other hand, may vary depending on a TV’s model and the year it was released.
In this day and age, cybersecurity terrorists are merely waiting for the opportunity to pounce and attack vulnerable devices and platforms. While such threats may seem scary, Samsung’s independent, reliable, and powerful Security Care Service ensures that no vulnerability is left out in the open.
