Bitdefender announced it has joined prpl Foundation to contribute technologies, expertise and guidance to help drive more standardized and secure customer premises equipment (CPE) to the marketplace.
The prpl Foundation is a diverse community of service providers, OEMs, silicon vendors, ISVs, and open-source developers committed to open-source software and open APIs to build standardized, carrier-grade CPE. It is a large ecosystem of like-minded companies and individuals working to defragment the plethora of proprietary software platforms developed and deployed today.
The partnership between prpl Foundation and Bitdefender harnesses the combined expertise and resources to unlock new opportunities and expedite cybersecurity innovation. By merging Bitdefender’s deep history of threat research across CPE and IoT platforms with the collective knowledge of prpl Foundation members, the alliance will champion enhanced safety and heightened reliability in CPE solutions.
Bitdefender will join the prpl Foundation’s Product Steering Committee and Marketing Committee and will participate in the prplOS, prplSecurity and prpl Low-Level API workgroups.
