What Shadow IoT Is and How to Mitigate the Risk

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.

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.
