The rapidly evolving IoT security threat landscape necessitates enterprises finding trusted partners to mitigate risks across the end-point, network, transport, cloud/data and application layers.
This report provides enterprises with a view on the evolving IoT security landscape and the best mechanisms for mitigating the risk and impact of security threats. It starts with the results of Transforma Insights’ recent IoT Connectivity Survey, demonstrating how critical security is considered to be. The following sections examine the ways in which the security threat is evolving, a dive into some of the legislation affecting IoT security, and a topology of IoT security, identifying the various types of security requirements. The final sections provide enterprises with a guide to how security considerations need to be stitched into their IoT deployments, and an explanation of why Transforma Insights believes that there is a need for something called ‘IoT Security-as-a-Service’ to mitigate growing and evolving IoT threats.
