San Francisco, CA – November 25, 2014-- PubNub, the leading Data Stream Network, today announced that Todd Greene, founder & CEO, will present “The Top 10 Challenges in Securing IoT Communications” at the Internet of Things (IoT) World Forum 2014, November 25-26, in London at the Millenium Gloucester Hotel. Attendees will learn more about the security and authentication risks that reside within communications among devices and servers and will leave with a checklist that outlines the requirements for creating a ubiquitous, secure, bi-directional communication protocol for the IoT. “Current security assumptions for the Internet – firewalls, proxy servers, content screening, anti-virus software – are unfortunately not applicable for the IoT,” said Todd Greene, Founder and CEO of PubNub. “Based on successful deployments of several leading IoT companies, I will share a framework for creating a new ecosystem for security on a device-by-device basis that has the equivalent of intrusion detection, antivirus, encryption and anti denial of service.” What: Todd Greene, Founder & CEO, PubNub, to present “The Top 10 Challenges in Securing IoT Communications” at the IoT World Forum When: Tuesday, November 25, 2014, 1:45 pm Where: Millennium Gloucester Hotel, London.
