What is IoT Security?

IoT Security is protection of the Internet of things and the network they’re in from threats. It also monitors risks all while helping avoid vulnerabilities in the devices that would cause security risks to your business.

Security Risks to Your IoT Network

We know the benefits and value IoT devices provide, but we must realize that they are also vulnerable to cyberattacks. According to security researchers, as many as 57% of IoT devices may be vulnerable to medium or high severity attacks.

As more and more of our users build out their digital nomad lifestyle in business and IoT security, it is also more challenging than ever before, even in homes with connected kitchen gadgets, security monitoring systems, and drones. All of these applications need to comply with the network security policies of the organization/home and their devices.
