The Internet of Things (IoT) is on the rise and enormously increases the amount of data. Is your infrastructure prepared for it?
The Internet of Things brings together three inevitable trends: mobility, automation and the enormous hunger for data. Tailored endpoints that automatically provide data-driven information through enterprise systems offer virtually unlimited possibilities. The IoT informs companies about everything – from customers’ use of products to issues with critical hardware.
However, all of these devices and the data they send create potential risks. Compromising your own systems over hacked devices or corrupt data cannot be risked by any organization. That’s why it’s so important to back up your infrastructure in preparation for the IoT. That’s the only way you can really take advantage of the Internet of Things.
The growing diversity of Internet-connected devices – the Internet of Things – offers the potential for dramatic change in the corporate world. From automated monitoring and management of hardware and physical environment to the identification of required products or unrecognized business processes, the IoT can make the corporate world smarter and thus better.
However, to capitalize on these benefits, businesses must first go through countless security-related risks to their own infrastructure through the Internet of Things. The individual IoT components create different risks.
Companies that already rely on the Internet of Things are confronted with a high volume of data. However, this is just the tip of the iceberg. There are countless other important factors – such as routing IoT network traffic or setting up device profiles for authentication. Therefore, the corporate networks need to be adjusted accordingly. With more information, customizability, and security for the networks, organizations can prepare for the IoT and make the most of it.
