Securing the IoT has become business-critical
The IoT era has arrived.
Here’s some proof: 83% of organizations say the Internet of Things (IoT) is important to business today, and 92% say it will be in two years.
That’s according to a recent DigiCert survey commissioned by ReRez Research of 700 organizations in five countries to better understand the IoT and IoT security.
Anecdotally, I always find that markets have matured when it’s no longer an unusual thing. For example, a few years ago, it was hard to find IoT deployments that were outside of the traditional machine-to-machine industries such as manufacturing and oil and gas. Today, connected things are everywhere. Case in point: I recently interviewed the IT director at an entertainment venue and he walked me through all the connected things without ever saying “IoT.” The organization was connecting more things to improve customer experience, and it was treated as no big deal.
