IoT is responsible for driving the biggest quantity of data into data lakes for businesses to analyze and leverage for analytics. With so much data at stake, companies must control who can and cannot access that data. This is the concern of Gerry Gebel, vice president of business development at Axiomatics. Gebel notes that as more data is generated through IoT devices, it becomes increasingly important to share that data securely across an enterprise to generate analytical insights. As a result, businesses are in search of modern tools and approaches to stave off unauthorized access to data and mitigate their chances of a data breach in 2019.

DEPLOYING MACHINE LEARNING TO HANDLE INFLUX OF IOT DATA

Article | February 18, 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.

IoT Security: Inherent Risks Require Robust Solutions

Article | February 18, 2020

IoT technologies offer many remarkable benefits. They can make complicated tasks, such as tracking a fleet of thousands of vehicles, monitoring and adjusting manufacturing processes or automating a smart home or office simpler, easier and more cost-effective than ever before. By inviting IoT devices into our homes, workplaces and public spaces, however, we also expose new attack surfaces. When we assign an IoT system to be responsible for a critical task or trust it to monitor sensitive information in our most private spaces, we want to ensure that the system can be trusted. For this reason, it is vital that security best practices are applied at all stages when developing an IoT solution.
