How Will IoT Revolutionize Pharmaceutical Manufacturing?

Article | February 20, 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is the simple fact that pharma often produces sophisticated drugs using manufacturing processes that are decades out of date, and which are being phased out in comparable industries, such as chemical manufacturing.

Hardware Threats to an IoT Ecosystem

Article | February 20, 2020

An IoT ecosystem, like any biome on Earth, is constantly subjected to changes and threats at various scales. Whether the system is an asset tracking solution in a hospital to help deliver more effective healthcare or cold chain management ensuring temperature control during transportation, the hardware/sensor is where the data journey commences in an IoT ecosystem. The integrity of these hardware components is paramount to the success of an IoT solution, but there are currently critical threat points on these devices which left unaddressed could be disastrous. Much of the focus of IoT security is on keeping the communicated data from IoT devices untampered up the solution stack. Methods like end-to-end AES encryption are currently standard by most network protocols and are well secured and tested.

Finding and Fixing Blind Spots in Enterprise IoT Security

Article | February 20, 2020

The Internet of Things has been a breakthrough, and adoption rates keep exploding. There are possibly over 20 billion IoT devices in the world, and by 2025, there may have been 75 billion. Even though there has been a rise in smart home devices, most IoT devices are found in businesses, industries, and healthcare. The benefits are overwhelming: from enabling automation of repetitive tasks (both simple and complex), to real-time data insights and analytics, IoT devices make workers more productive, improve customer experience, and reduce operating costs. However, with the many benefits of IoT devices come serious disadvantages, chief of which is security. Here are some reasons why IoT devices have such serious security risks:
