IoT devices can be your largest security risk

IoT devices can be your largest security risk

It is estimated by 2020, there will be over 21 billion of Internet of Things (IoT) devices. IoT devices can be your largest security risk to your business.

Many organizations will have issues identifying these devices and characterizing them as part of their current network access policy.  As companies are embracing a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) strategy, organizations must now get employee devices on the corporate network. They must also address the 21 billion IoT devices projected to have access in the near future.

IoT is covering everything now from video surveillance camera, motion detectors, HVAC controls and many other devices that are more difficult to manage and secure.  Once all IoT devices are connected to the network and identified, the IT organization must create or modify the network access policy as part of a corporate policy enforcement strategy. This should determine if and how these devices will be connected, as well as what role they will be assigned that will govern their access.
