The Internet of Things (IoT) is here. There are now more than 700,000 machine-to-machine (M2M) devices connected across the IoT, and by 2020 there will be more than 1,000,000,000 – yes, 1 billion devices. Without a well-defined and regulated IoT security standard, the risk of exposure to industry and government networks by malicious hackers will be off the charts.
The IoT scenario presents an IT security future that looks exponentially complex and highly chaotic. Think of the complexity of 1 billion IoT M2M modules accessing the internet, any single one of them capable of network access given the right operator.
SyncDog SentinelSecure™ for IoT provides a fully FIPS 140-2 secure framework for end-to-end secure transactions for all your IoT modules. With agent-based software technology that tracks and monitors access to your network and sends the data to the Sentinel Mobility Monitoring server or any EMM solution. SentinelSecure™ for IoT can be your IoT security stopgap or it can be used in conjunction with any EMM/MDM system.
The 1 billion M2M devices IoT scenario should be a wake-up call to government and industry about the dangers of complex and heterogeneous IT environments that have expanded beyond physical network perimeters. Included here is the enterprise mobile infrastructure and very soon we are going to have to contend with IoT module monitoring. Don’t wait until it is too late. SyncDog has a solution today, the SentinelSecure™ Framework for IoT.
Mobile security adoption has been a back-burner budgetary item to enterprise security tools for years now. The Internet of Things (IoT), however, poses new challenges for how CISOs are going manage mobile networks in the future.
