CHARTING YOUR IOT COURSE

March 1, 2016

Each iteration of the Internet brings immense opportunities. Graphical browsers fueled e-commerce and the dot-com rush of the 1990s. Social media revolutionized communication and content creation in the 2000s. And now, the Internet of Things (IoT) is redefining how information is gathered, transmitted, and interpreted. The potential of IoT is clearly vast. Gartner estimates that 26 billion IoT devices will be connected by 20201 , IDC estimates 28 billion2 , and Cisco Systems estimates 50 billion3 . Whichever of these figures is closest to the truth, change is coming fast, and the influence of IoT is increasingly visible around us.

The Internet of Things A critique of ambient technology and the all-seeing network of RFID

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

The mist was skimming off the trees. You could not see the other end of Lake Jönköping in the early hours of a September morning. I was walking slowly on the running path enjoying the damp steam coming from the trees. The sun was rising, rays of light backscattering from hitting something in the middle of the lake. In a flash I saw King Arthur’s sword bursting from the perfectly calm water. It was at that precise moment that I experienced a sweet epiphany. It was very clear for a fraction of a second. I felt the scene was alive, and so was I. Progress has come to be defined as the ability to read data as data: the ability to read data as data and not noise.

INDIA IoT REPORT - EMERGENCE OF A NEW CIVIC OS

whitePaper | February 23, 2018

Lately, the Internet of Things (IoT) has been receiving its fair share of attention as the world turns more and more digital. There is no doubting the value it has unlocked so far and its potential to change life as we know it today. 2018 is being heralded by several notable organisations1 as a year of good tidings and synchronised global economic growth. Reports are bullish about India’s participation in the global economy’s recovery and are pegging India’s economic growth at 7-8%2 . At the heart of this growth story lies the inherent change policymakers, enterprises and citizens are driving to create and steer a truly digital economy. Perhaps Neuromancer author William Gibson is spot-on with his insight, “The future is already here. It’s just not evenly distributed.” Change is under way, but in different ways dependent on geography, culture, economics and politics.

Smart Doesn’t Necessarily Mean Secure: IoT Security Considerations for Manufacturers

whitePaper |

The IoT is still very much in its infancy. We can only begin to conceive of what the future will look like, both in terms of smart connected devices and how we secure them. What we can say with confidence is that each deployment is going to have its own needs, and PKI is a great option for meeting many of them. PKI is based on established standards and covers all the basics of authentication, encryption, and data integrity. The key for manufacturers will be to avoid closed standards and leverage best practices and existing technology where possible. CITO Research recommends partnering with GlobalSign based on its history in supporting large scale PKI deployments and its forward thinking flexibility that supports customers, including manufacturers, that are evolving their products to meet market demands in a business-driven environment.

IoT AND PRIVACY BYDESIGN IN THE SMART HOME

whitePaper | June 20, 2017

The Internet of Things (IoT) has become a globally recognized term in workplaces and homes, and in a literal sense could be used to describe anything that is connected to the internet. However, if you ask what sort of devices are included in the IoT, then you are likely to get differing answers with respondents describing the devices they have come into contact with, or know about. This can include everything from cell phones, smart bulbs, fitness trackers, smart speakers and dishwashers, all the way to water quality sensors in pumping stations.

Considerations for Building Out Your Connected Device Strategy

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

The Internet of Things (IoT) has nearly eclipsed the splendor of “big data”—in fact, it’s enveloping big data into a much larger, more promising concept. And to prepare for IoT, companies in all sectors must build a connected device strategy that makes sense—from both a financial and logistical standpoint—if they want to capitalize on the enormous opportunity IoT offers. McKinsey Global Institute reports that the IoT business will deliver $6.2 trillion in revenue by 2025.
