The Internet of Things (IoT) has become a ubiquitous term to describe the tens of billions of devices that have sensing or actuation capabilities, and are connected to each other via the Internet. The IoT includes everything from wearable fitness bands and smart home appliances to factory control devices, medical devices and even automobiles. Security has not been a high priority for these devices until now. It is now time to establish The Internet of Secure Things.
Unfortunately many of these systems – thought to be safe – are still vulnerable. On top of that, insider threats, whether malicious or accidental, make up 70% of cyber-attacks, and they usually originate inside that perimeter. The Internet of Things — all those appliances and devices that connect to the internet and to each other on your home network — have created new opportunities for cybercriminals. Bottom line: If you have a connected home, it needs protection.
