The Protocol That’s Putting Enterprise IoT At Extreme Risk

February 04, 2020 / Ericka Chickowski

A protocol little known by executives outside of the networking world may put the future safety of enterprise IoT at extreme risk if organizations don’t take action to secure their connections. New research out last week found that the way that many large organizations are using the Long Range Wide Area Networking (LoRaWAN) protocol is making them susceptible to hacking that could cause civic disruption and even put people at risk. There’s a lot of innovation riding on the future of LoRaWAN. The protocol is interwoven in the backbone of communication for 100 million different IoT devices used in smart cities, industrial IoT applications, smart utilities, smart vehicles, and healthcare applications.
