The System on Chip, next generation hardware firewall for the next generation connected device.

The birth of the internet of things and the necessity of the connected world has opened up endless possibilities to improve our lives. With it has also given birth to new possibilities for intrusion, interferrence and threats to the modern world. 

Each and every day new ideas and new ways to use and misuse these devices are being published and reported by the media. Reliance on a trade-off between usability and user friendlyness has given rise to consequences that were not considered.

How can we change this? How can we fix this?

How about a single solution which has one function and one function only, to protect access to and control of connected devices. This was the idea here at Olive Innovations and the reason we have developed Zeus Guardian.


The primary issue for unauthorised access to connected devices. 

Devices are shipped with default passwords to allow easy starts for the consumer, this is ok as long as the first step when the consumer integrates the device in to their connected life they change them.

With Zeus, passwords are a thing of the past.


Low power devices are very limited on resources, there is typically a point to point connection between two devices with a dependency on the protocol for the encryption of the communication. 

There have been tools that exist for decades to sniff data and with the intention of manipulation and injection to forceably gain access to resources. 

We mitigate this with an additonal protocol with encrypted, signed and verified data packets to ensure security. 


Build from the ground up to ensure that multiple users can if granted communicate with the connected device.

With the addition of our protocol with command level policies to allow restricted access without compromising on security. 

Time limited access keys and revocation ensures long term security of your devices.



Even the things you didnt know you need to protect.


More and more advances in the automotive industry provide new methods for interactive with your vehicle.

These open up new possibilities for theft and control, both local and remote.

There has already been demonstrations of controls of vehicles from laptops, now vehicles are connected to the internet how long will it be before its remote?

There has been numerious news articles that demonstrate how easy it is to gain unauthorised access to modern vehicles without keys, and after access if obtained, new keys cloned. Its as easy to steal a vehicle today as it was 20 years ago.

These issues were the original ideas for prevention which gave birth to Zeus Guardian.


Drone and pilotless aircraft sales increased 40% in 2019.

New uses for these devices including trials for delivery services, open up new possibilities for more efficient delivery of goods to our homes.

Articles and research into drone swarms has also demonstrated the security risks of hundreds of automated aircraft flying over our citiies. Including turning them into a delivery mechanism for viruses, botnets and remote surveillance.

As long as the security is without doubt secure and the control is in the hands of those who should have it this is not a problem.

But if it is not, how do you ensure the security of 1000's of devices over our cities.

Zeus unique access control and command verification policies guarantee the security and ensure those in control, stay in control.


Making our lives easier is a massive market in todays world.

Simpifying our homes lives and making us more efficient is giving rise to more dependencies on devices connected to our homes.

Security cameras, keyless entry systems, home heating control, smart fridges and even cookers.

All to save us those precious few moments each day.

When developing these solutions security is not a the forefront of the device manaufacturers, there are assumptions that our home networks are secure and therefore their devices are secure. 

This may be true for the more tech savvy but not necessarily true for the average home user.

We want to make it our responsibility to ensure not matter what the device is, even down to your smart lightbulb they are secure.
