Many have hypothesized about the security impact of the "Internet of Things" (IoT) for enterprises, but for the first time, we have actual data on the potential security risks introduced by these devices--and the results may surprise you! Andrew Hay, Director of Security Research at OpenDNS, conducted a multi-month study on the prevalence of IoT devices in enterprise networks. In this webcast, Andrew will walk through the key findings, including: The prevalence of IoT devices--even in the most regulated industries--and which devices are most commonly found. Where IoT hosting infrastructure is located on the internet.

The role of BSS in the journey to 5G monetization

Article | March 24, 2020

The rollout of commercial 5G services is well underway. This evolution is unlocking exciting new opportunities, but it also presents new challenges. To capture new 5G revenue streams, service providers must transform their existing business support systems (BSS), and develop clear roadmaps to guide this transformation. In the latest MIT Insights report, telecom executives share their vision for 5G-enabled BSS, and how they are preparing for it. Here, we explore some of the highlights. The benefits of 5G are well-documented. Low-latency connectivity and superior broadband speeds will open doors to fully automated factories and put driverless vehicles on our roads. Service providers will be able to provide cutting-edge solutions and superior consumer experiences. However, monetizing a 5G-fuelled IoT society requires a clear strategic roadmap – particularly when it comes to BSS. As 5G matures, BSS will play an increasingly important role in establishing the service provider’s position in the value chain – and having a clear BSS evolution plan is crucial.

IoT as a Service: Lowering the Cost Barrier of IoT for Small and Mid-Sized Businesses

Article | March 24, 2020

There are already 20 billion IoT-connected devices, and 8 billion of those are devices used by enterprises, according to a report by Gartner. The impact of the Internet of Things market is potentially $11 trillion by 2025. The investment in IoT has come primarily from large businesses, but the technology is increasingly available via ‘as-a-service’, making it possible for businesses of all sizes to benefit. The ‘as-a-service’ model reduces the cost of ownership and capital expenditures and makes it easy for small businesses to investigate IoT with smaller up-font investments and less risk. Frank Della Rosa, research director at IDC, said that “Software as a Service (SaaS) continues to be the most highly deployed cloud segment, representing a commanding 62.4% of the total cloud market revenues.”

How to Effectively Monitor Utility Usage With IoT for Maximum ROI

Article | March 24, 2020

Operating a utility business can be particularly difficult, especially when you’re trying to maximize ROI. In the water utility space, per capita water usage has decreased while the water itself has become more expensive to collect. Across utilities sectors, aging infrastructure takes a large cost to maintain and eventually update. Consumer expectations and regulations also can cut into ROI. As they should, people expect clean and safe water and a continuous supply of electricity. The driving factor in the utilities space is efficiency. Enter the smart water meter. For our IoT water management solution, we used Google Cloud Platform (GCP). GCP has various benefits for water management through its wide array of products. We will go over two important features of a water management IoT solution.

How Will IoT Revolutionize Pharmaceutical Manufacturing?

Article | March 24, 2020

Pharma is big business, but what it’s not generally recognized is, in large part, a manufacturing business with complex supply chains, finicky chemical processes and products that have to meet stringent quality controls. Few of those outside the industry think about how drugs are made safely, efficiently and at scale with reliable quality and in precisely measured doses. Even more interesting is the simple fact that pharma often produces sophisticated drugs using manufacturing processes that are decades out of date, and which are being phased out in comparable industries, such as chemical manufacturing.
