The rise of cheap but capable ARM processors, and the saturation of internet connectivity with Wi-Fi and cellular, has led to the rapid spread of Internet of Things devices. IoT can now be found across the consumer and enterprise landscape, finding itself particularly well suited for industrial, campus, and municipal applications. But has security risen to meet the sudden influx of IoT devices? Not quite. Rich Stroffolino breaks down the problem, why enterprises will eventually catch up, and what the regulatory landscape might look like when they do.
How do you ensure that IoT devices are secure? How can you even be sure that nothing has been done to them when they’re outside of your control? How do you keep track of all the bugs and updates and patches? Tom Hollingsworth takes a look at Jitsuin and their Archivist platform and how it can help you solve your IoT issues with exciting new technology.
How can you secure devices you don’t control? How can you enhance the security of your organization when you have lots of IoT devices? Tom Hollingsworth interviews Mike Nelson of Digicert about how they are helping to secure IoT devices in the digital age.
SPB never really went away. But the landscape it was built to work in changed radically. Tom Hollingsworth takes a look at where SPB is now and discusses how the new steward, Extreme Networks, is positioning SPB to secure IoT and more in the data center and campus.
How secure is your smart device? Is IoT capable of being secured completely? Ray Lucchesi has some great thoughts on how to secure IoT and some of the pitfalls of using low power devices to create secure infrastructure in this post.
Reactions from Cisco Live Europe, VMware layoffs hit hard, Google looking to compete with Microsoft Teams. Rich Stroffolino and Tom Hollingsworth are talking about all these and more on the Gestalt IT Rundown, your weekly IT news briefing.
Is your enterprise experiencing an explosion of IoT devices? Are you trying to figure out the best way to secure them? Tom Hollingsworth takes a look at a new IoT-focused solution from Fortinet that can help you out.
Simplification may sound great and improve efficiency, but it always with it an increase in risk. This is because by abstracting away the complexity, you’re also hiding potential faults in the system. The roundtable discusses if this is true, and if there’s a way to lose some of the geek knobs without creating a risky environment.
The Internet of Things (IoT) often gets represented as consumer grade cameras, sensors, thermostats, and appliances. While this certainly is a notable portion of the IoT market, it neglects the more mission-critical side of IoT which has its roots firmly planted in the heart of industrial networking. In this post, Jordan Martin takes a look at the new products he saw at Tech Field Day Extra from Cisco Live US 2019 that focus specifically on those use cases.
On this episode, the roundtable discusses if IoT is making us less secure overall. They get into a discussion of what kind of attack surfaces IoT presents, whether these device impact privacy more than security, and why current IoT is based on a “no support” model.
