The Imperative to Address Security Concerns of the Rapidly Evolving Internet of Things


The Internet of Things (IoT) broadly refers to devices and equipmentthat are readable, recognizable, locatable, addressable and/or controllable via the internet.This includes everything from edge computing devices to home appliances, from wearable technology tocars. IoT represents the melding of the physical world and the digital worked, as sensors are not costly and wireless access is now ubiquitous. These days, if a device can be turned on, it can most likely be connected to the internet. Because ofthis, data can be shared quickly across a multitude of objects and devices, thereby increasing the rate of communications.

According to a recent EY (Ernst & Young) study, Cybersecurity and the Internet of Things, it is estimated that the number of connected devices globally will exceed 50 billion by 2020. Fulfillment of this forecast will give any business, no matter the industry, access to endless amounts of vital, real-time data about their company and customers.
