Booming Growth Means Enterprise IoT Security Imperative

1 Dec

The Internet of Things (IoT) has a bright future. And we have posted on this topic many times. One huge field is Enterprise IoT. Thus, we discuss it in the first part of our post. Then, we look at the enterprise IoT security imperative.

According to TechTarget.  “IoT relates devices, objects, animals, or people with unique IDs. And it offers the ability to transfer data over a network. As such, it works without human interaction.”

Now, let’s review the IoT:

 

Background: Enterprise Internet of Things (EIoT)

To begin, what is the Enterprise Internet of Things?

According to John Greenough for Business Insider:

“The EIoT will be the largest IoT sector — enterprise, home, government. Because firms have the funds to buy IoT devices and services. Their EIoT benefits will accrue and spur adoption. IoT devices range from robot-like units to chips that hook into machines. They let users control the device or collect specific data.”

As

“Connected IoT products allow for in-depth knowledge of how their use. Besides new ways to interact with customers over the product life cycle. And to deliver large amounts of product data and information.”

In sum, McKinsey states:

“EIoT is rather new. Yet, 98% of survey respondents said most firms in their industry have EIoT plans. And they lift service operations and make operations clearer. Thus, they enable new business models and create new product offerings. For instance, a firm can create IoT services for better product quality. Besides lowering customer costs, these uses could transform business models.”

To understand this better, look at the McKinsey chart.

The Enterprise IoT Security Imperative

With the importance of EIoT comes the need for strong security. And at all costs, we must protect data.

Steve Hashman is Director of Marketing at CUBE. In that capacity, he has prepared the following infographic. And he titled it: Are we creating a secure Enterprise Internet of Things?”

Our thanks for the infographic. As you see, it cites valuable tips. So, be secure with your EIoT!
