The Challenges of IOT Security and techniques for mitigating risk

The IOT hub talks a standard internet protocol to the rest of the world. This IOT Hub may be directly internet addressable, or may act as a proxy and forward data to a cloud repository. Either way the critical feature of this architecture is that internet addressability to the hub and consequently the security assurances are guaranteed up to the IOT hub only. Between the IOT hub and the sensor, any number of physical bearers can be used, and any number of internet protocols.

Transforming Endpoints with Artificial Intelligence

whitePaper | August 5, 2021

There has never been so much compute power available in IoT devices - now is the time to be designing and deploying true intelligence in IoT endpoints. Devices which are aware of their environment are capable of adding huge value to the data they collect and the services which they enable. This paper explores how new and emerging technology can enable your devices to see, hear and feel what is going on, interpret what they sense, take autonomous actions and generate real, trusted, valued data for the cloud. Recent developments in hardware and software will enable a step change in the capability of resource-constrained endpoint platforms, allowing developers to build vision, voice and vibration capability, coupled with genuine intelligence at the endpoint.

TURNING THE INTERNET OF THINGS INTO REALITY

whitePaper | January 15, 2020

The prospects are exciting. By enhancing resources with IoT, employees and organizations generate new value. Notable examples include improved air quality in cities and increased availability and reliability of rail vehicles of up to 99%. Other IoT implementations cut non-technical power losses in half, saving $150 million for an electric utilities company in Brazil, and reduce delivery days in electronics manufacturing from 25 to less than 7, improving quality at the same time.

Internet of Things (IoT) in the Federal Government

whitePaper | June 8, 2021

The Internet of Things is one of the most impactful IT innovations of our time. As consumers, we already encounter the IoT in our daily lives with smart items such as TVs, watches, and phones. As we journey further in time, IoT will become a ubiquitous aspect of life at home and in the workplace. Gartner defines the IoT as the network of physical objects that contain embedded technology to communicate and sense or interact with their internal states or the external environment.” More simply, IoT devices are computers (typically very small), that are embedded into an object to perform a function (e.g., collect data, run software) and connect to a network (e.g., the internet). For example, an IoT device could be an assembly line sensor capable of detecting minute deficiencies and determining when equipment needs repair.
