Exploring eSIM to supercharge your IoT Connectivity solution? Or simply want to learn more about why eSIM is one of the leading forces driving the global expansion of IoT.
IoT devices are proliferating throughout corporate networks raising concerns about security risks they may introduce. However, IoT technologies differ in many ways from most enterprise-ready technologies that currently exist. Understanding the risks that IoT represents and how to best quantify that risk can be a challenge for many security leaders.
IoT deployments carry inherent risks like undeterred access to devices, poor connectivity and a very large threat surface. With ever-increasing incidents of intrusion, denial of service, spoofing attacks, etc., businesses must take a strategic view of IoT security. IoT developers and Solutions Architects know that a solid security architecture for IoT will require encryption, authentication, and authorization to run at scale. However, today, IoT security needs a different paradigm than IT security – here is where MQTT comes in to help in mitigating IoT security vulnerabilities.
In the Internet of Things, there's no such thing as a mobile device that operates in isolation. And yet, mobile devices and apps are often marketed, sold, and bought as if they're independent products. Manufacturers and consumers alike need to think less in terms of "discrete product" and more of "interconnected systems." No one wants 50 different mobile apps to control 50 different things in their smart home or smart health environments. With IoT product manufacturers championing different communications protocols, the challenge is to enable one mobile app to control many devices.
