Security in the era of IoT
Whole industries are being invented and reinvented by the rapid digital transformation fueled by the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT enables infinite connections between actively communicating devices from the smallest sensors to the largest industry platforms.
Devices operate silently at the edge of the network, generating, consuming, and aggregating valuable data. These devices need robust security features to prevent their identities and data from becoming compromised. While the number, type, and applications of these devices evolve continuously, security standards haven’t kept pace.
Without a framework in place to ensure devices are built with security features “engineered in,” every new device added to the ecosystem represents a potential new vulnerability. Deterring hostile attacks and data compromise requires a comprehensive, continuously evolving plan to assess every device, every component of the infrastructure, every member of the organization—even your customers.
