The COVID-19 pandemic forced companies to abruptly shuer their offices, instructing employees to work from home. For all of 2020 and much of 2021, these buildings weren’t the only thing abandoned. Countless IoT devices remained inside the walls and connected to the corporate network, still refreshing data, performing functions and awaiting commands.

The Zscaler ThreatLabz threat research team took a deeper look into this activity on both sanctioned and unsanctioned IoT devices to unveil eye-opening IoT malware trends from the Zscaler cloud.

Future ‘smart walls’ key to IoT

Article | March 2, 2020

IoT equipment designers shooting for efficiency should explore the potential for using buildings as antennas, researchers say. Environmental surfaces such as walls can be used to intercept and beam signals, which can increase reliability and data throughput for devices, according to MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL).Researchers at CSAIL have been working on a smart-surface repeating antenna array called RFocus. The antennas, which could be applied in sheets like wallpaper, are designed to be incorporated into office spaces and factories. Radios that broadcast signals could then become smaller and less power intensive.

Microsoft Introduces Seamless Integration of Azure IoT with Cisco IoT

Article | March 2, 2020

An integrated Azure IoT solution provides the necessary software, hardware, and cloud services that businesses need to rapidly launch IoT initiatives and quickly realize business value. Using software-based intelligence pre-loaded onto Cisco IoT network devices, telemetry data pipelines from industry-standard protocols, like OPC-Unified Architecture (OPC-UA) and Modbus, can be easily established using a UI directly into Azure IoT Hub. Services, like Microsoft Azure Stream Analytics, Microsoft Azure Machine Learning, and Microsoft Azure Notification Hub services, can be used to build IoT applications for the enterprise. Additional telemetry processing is also supported by Cisco through local scripts developed in Microsoft Visual Studio, where filtered data can also be uploaded directly into Azure IoT Hub. This collaboration provides customers with a fully integrated solution that will give access to design tools, global connectivity, advance analytics, and cognitive services for analyzing IoT data.

DEPLOYING MACHINE LEARNING TO HANDLE INFLUX OF IOT DATA

Article | March 2, 2020

The Internet of Things is gradually penetrating every aspect of our lives. With the growth in numbers of internet-connected sensors built into cars, planes, trains, and buildings, we can say it is everywhere. Be it smart thermostats or smart coffee makers, IoT devices are marching ahead into mainstream adoption. But, these devices are far from perfect. Currently, there is a lot of manual input required to achieve optimal functionality — there is not a lot of intelligence built-in. You must set your alarm, tell your coffee maker when to start brewing, and manually set schedules for your thermostat, all independently and precisely.
