The number of IoT devices is increasing by the day. It has become extremely difficult to keep track of the devices people bring to work. This leads to the emergence of shadow IoT - the devices that the IT and security departments are completely unaware of. Because of these shadow devices, hackers can now exploit vulnerabilities much more easily than before. This article deals with the dangers and solutions to shadow IoT.
With a virtually infinite amount of devices in distributed enterprise environments, along with various venues for the IoT in differing industries, the network is now the focal point for its security. Through the network, users and devices can be authenticated, policies and rules put in place to control access and behavior, and visibility can be increased to detect anomalies. To make this truly work, security and network personnel must collaborate closely.
Over-The-Air (OTA) updates make it possible for companies to roll out new patches, software or firmware to the devices in their network without ever having to recall those devices and interrupt their customers' lives.
Not everyone is sold on the idea that regulations dictating security standards for IoT devices will actually improve security. A multi-pronged approach would be more effective, including manufacturer-initiated best practices and consumer education.
The re-emergence of Mirai botnet variants shows us that we're still missing standards for the overall security of an IoT ecosystem.
If a hacker finds your old smart bulb in the trash, they could access important personal data. Learn the risks to secure your networks.
IoT lives in a complex ecosystem. IoT devices often cast some confusion. When building out a new IoT device, know these three fundamentals.
Developing a cybersecurity standard that will provide us with more secure IoT is paramount, but several challenges must be taken into account.
The Internet of Things (IoT) or the network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances, and other items embedded with software, sensors, and network connectivity which enable these objects to connect to each other and exchange data, presents a huge opportunity for businesses as well as huge risks.
Security and operational risks could quickly damage trust in and dampen enthusiasm for consumer IoT products before full market acceptance.
