It’s safe to say that most people simply can’t live without technology anymore. Whether or not some people like this fact, this is actually a good thing. Technology, when used correctly and in moderation, can make our lives much easier and more comfortable. This is especially true today, when there are so many IoT solutions are available to consumers.
If you have a business case for taking advantage of an internet of things (IoT) ecosystem, you’re probably wondering where to start. It’s a fairly complex system of interwoven technologies, so it’s understandable to proceed with caution. We’ll review the components needed in building an IoT ecosystem to give you a launching-off point.
When Smart House aired on Disney Channel in 1999, it was a massive stretch of the imagination; while smart home technology has thankfully not tried to take over as anyone’s mother, it has come a long way. New technologies for homes have really taken off as devices are being introduced for every room in the house.
While work from home has generated a whole new level of security threats, the Internet of Things (IoT) promises to up the ante even further.
IoT sensor technology has been evolving at a rapid rate over the last few years, capable of detecting and presenting external information in a variety of contexts. Today, companies in an array of sectors can leverage data remotely, a benefit that’s been especially prominent in the presence of lockdowns during the pandemic.
Internet-of-things devices are vulnerable to cyberattacks, not just because of misconfigurations or weak passwords, but also because of their extensive use of third-party code.
There’s a new trend in the IoT space, and it’s called IoT.2. If you haven’t experienced it yet, here’s what’s happening.
A global-scale malvertising attack aimed specifically at home-network based IoT devices has been uncovered by global cybersecurity firm GeoEdge. Working in cooperation with the company’s AdTech partners InMobi and Verve Group, GeoEdge’s security researchers identified both the attack vector as well its origins from bad actors in Slovenia and Ukraine.
Internet of Things (IoT) search engines present both good solutions and serious risks of weaponised exploits: two VMware vCenter Server vulnerabilities identified earlier this year illustrate this.
A few years ago, no one knew if the IoT was real or a pipe dream. Now, the approach has diversified into multiple variations that target specific application niches. The concept has matured and the industry around it is growing up.
Last week, the Seoul Metropolitan Government announced that its city-wide public IoT network (Internet of Things) is on track to be completed by 2023, reported Korea Biz Wire. The operating platform is planned to be established at City Hall by the end of 2021.
As the risks of connected devices increase, organizations must evaluate and strengthen their product protections with training, pen testing and device maintenance plans.
According to a 2020 report by Palo Alto Networks, 98% of IoT data traffic is unencrypted. This statistic is mind boggling given what we know about the risks. To appreciate the scope of this problem, it is vital to understand encryption is only a single link in a long chain needed to secure IoT, data, and our world.
Today, every aspect of daily life is affected by technological influences. In terms of the office environment, this is also true. Minor issues at the workplace are sometimes distracting or even annoying. Unsurprisingly, people seek solutions to settle them effectively and create efficient and comfortable conditions.
Internet of Things (IoT) devices fall into various categories. Some, such as those located in a hospital setting, are very sophisticated, with advanced operating systems and encryption and certificate capabilities built in. Other examples of note are Ring doorbells and Nest thermostats.
