Digitization and external connectivity for industrial assets and production zones is a double-edged sword. While ushering in a new era of operational and business efficiencies, they also open vectors for security problems in environments that have little or no resistance against them. Until recently, little had been done to cyber-harden industrial machines, ICS networks and emerging IoT devices. A new class of IoT visibility products  including Free and Open Source Software, or FOSS products has emerged to address these challenges. These tools are now available to perform sorely need functions such as network-capture analysis, asset inventory, and event correlation for industrial controls equipment, SCADA environments, and connected-sensor networks.

Four ways to ensure IoT success

Article | February 18, 2020

Three out of four IoT projects are considered a failure, according to Cisco. This is troubling but even more so when Cisco also found 61 per cent of companies say they believe they’ve barely begun to scratch the surface of IoT can do for their business? Businesses believe in the long-term value offered by integrating IoT into their business plan, however, they lack the knowledge of what is required to ensure the success of such a complex project. By studying past failed projects, technology leaders can gain a better understanding of why they failed and what they can do differently when evaluating and undertaking new IoT initiatives.
