Minim was founded in 2017 by Jeremy Hitchcock. Jeremy was inspired to start Minim after the massive 2016 botnet attack against Dyn, the company he co-founded. The source of the attack was common connected home devices, such as webcams, that were compromised due to a lack of basic security capabilities.
Minim recognizes that increasingly complex and unsecure home networks pose management and security challenges to consumers and service providers. As consumers bring more devices into their homes and require higher performance to support applications, such as 4K video, these challenges will only continue to grow.
Minim was created to address the current and future challenges of managing and securing the home network.
