Securing an IoT Solution? Start With the Network Layer

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.
