To more accurately describe the explosion of the Internet of Things, think of it as the Internet of Everything. Any device with an IP address can and will be connected. It’s estimated that 50 billion devices will come online in the next 5 years.
But there’s a consideration that must be addressed to continue to push the Internet of Things forward, and that consideration is security.
“Any device on the internet with an open inbound port will be attacked. It’s a matter of when, not if.”
In fact, Gartner Research lists security as the #1 challenge to making the Internet of Everything a reality. So what are these security challenges, and how can IoT manufacturers, developers, architects, and entrepreneurs overcome them?
We’re pleased to release our brand new and free white paper, where we lay out a number of IoT security challenges, and how to counter them:
