Family in a smart home

Our purpose

Minim® is an IoT platform that enables and secures a better connected home. In a world where connected devices have outnumbered people, Minim’s self-learning platform employs proprietary fingerprinting and behavioral models to detect threats before they become problems. Founded in 2017, Minim offers usable apps for consumers and their service providers to protect connected devices and optimize WiFi performance, leading to higher revenue and lower customer support costs. The company is now partnering with service providers and router manufacturers who want to help make home connectivity as safe and reliable as drinking water.

Insecure web camera

Our origin

On October 21, 2016, over 600,000 insecure webcams and other devices joined the Mirai botnet, unbeknownst to the device owners. Mirai attacked an internet performance management company, Dyn, which was cofounded and led by Jeremy Hitchcock. The botnet took down Dyn and, consequently, popular services like GitHub, Twitter, Reddit, Netflix, and Airbnb— huge swaths of the internet. It made the evening news, and Jeremy wanted to do something about it.  "What's crazy to me is that enterprise security and network management techniques have not migrated to the consumer networking space in the last decade," said Jeremy in his blog, Why Minim. And so, Minim was born. It is a sweet revenge story— but also a story about how we all deserve safe, reliable internet at home. Minim set out to help broadband service providers deliver just that.
