Pursue Real IoT Solutions, not Big White Whales

The search for the “next big thing” in technology has almost taken on mythic proportions. Just as Captain Ahab became obsessed with his pursuit of the elusive white whale in Moby Dick, it’s easy to get caught up in pursuing big solutions and big technology. But that is not necessarily the path to success.

More Than Half of IoT Devices Vulnerable to Severe Attacks

Article | March 11, 2020

More than half of all internet of things (IoT) devices are vulnerable to medium- or high-severity attacks, meaning that enterprises are sitting on a “ticking IoT time bomb,” according to Palo Alto Networks Unit 42 research team. In new research released Tuesday, researchers said that several deep-rooted issues exist around connected devices, both used by general enterprises and in medical environments. At the most basic level researchers found that 98 percent of all IoT device traffic is unencrypted, exposing personal and confidential data on the network. Other issues, like the reliance on outdated legacy protocols and operating systems, are opening up organizations up to older attack techniques that IT teams may not have had to deal with in years. For instance, researchers outlined one attack they discovered of a connected mammogram machine, used in a hospital, by the Conficker worm (malware first discovered more than a decade ago).

How Big Data and IoT Are Connected

Article | March 11, 2020

Big data as a term and a field, has been around for some time. It relates to the ways in which we study, analyze and process data sets that are too large to be handled by traditional data-processing software. Data can be described as ‘big’ when it demonstrates the four ‘V’ qualities: veracity (accuracy), velocity (speed), volume (size) and variety (both structured and unstructured). IoT, on the other hand, came much later and relates to devices, data and marrying them together. This area looks at making devices ‘smart’ (anything from watches to kettles) and collecting data about their performance or usage to influence consumer behavior.

Make Room For Public Clouds In Your Industrial IoT Strategy

Article | March 11, 2020

Not too long ago, executives from manufacturing and related industries would not consider running their internet of things (IoT) initiatives from a cloud. Now? It’s hard to find one who doesn’t enthusiastically embrace some role for the public cloud. Makers of industrial IoT (IIoT) software platforms have undergone a similar change of heart, pivoting from making grand plans for multibillion-dollar global data center rollouts to wholeheartedly partnering with one or more of the hyperscale public clouds. So far, so simple: Public cloud is definitely now part of the industrial IoT story. But there are a multitude of ways to use a public cloud, from just installing your own software there to fully integrating with all of the cloud, development, and IoT services that the hyperscale public cloud platforms increasingly offer. I explore this range of options in my latest report, “Hyperscale Public Clouds Power Your Industrial IoT Future,” and shall be discussing the issues in a client webinar on March 31.

Securing industrial networks: it’s a journey

Article | March 11, 2020

Trying to secure the industrial network in one go is like boiling the ocean. Better to view it as a journey. At each step in the journey, you’ll make incremental changes to people, process, and technology. Minimal security. This is the current state for most manufacturers. If you’re here, you’ve segmented the industrial network from the IT network. Traffic can’t cross from the IT network to the industrial network without clearing the DMZ. You can block malware from entering the industrial network. You can block malware from leaving the industrial network to infect the enterprise network. But if the industrial network is exposed to malicious software, you don’t have a way to contain it. That means the malware might affect multiple manufacturing cells or production lines — even multiple plants.
