December 06, 2018 / Virendra Soni
Leading digital security firm Kudelski Group is joining hands with Pepper IoT, the well-known IoT service provider, to secure the internet of things (IoT) devices. According to Gartner, there will be around $20.4 billion IoT devices globally by 2020. This is an enormous growth in the number of connected devices. However, the security of these devices remains a concern for IoT service providers, retailers and customers. The increasing number of IoT devices is widening the attack surface every year. Attackers are looking for vulnerabilities in these devices to carry out DDoS (distributed denial of service) attacks, and steal the confidential data of consumers from homes and offices. The partnership between Kudelski and Pepper IoT aims to reduce the risk of cybersecurity threats. The companies will offer tools and services to manufacturers of IoT devices to add security in these devices right from the time of manufacturing.
