Seamless connectivity between devices anywhere, anytime, in any condition is the goal behind the concept of IoT. Connected ecosystem will leverage the connectivity of devices for information sources thereby helping in more accurate analysis of data coming from different sources and improving productivity for the organizations and individual. However, with the connected infrastructure, security is one of the key concern that is hindering wide-spread IoT adoption globally.
Traditional security solutions are developed on the concept of securing a single device for a specific application sector. However, for a connected ecosystem, where variety of devices are connected together and are not restricted to the organization network only, traditional security solutions fail to provide the comprehensive protection across the various layers of the network. This demands for a more all-in-one package security solution that can analyze every single node of the connected network and also offer the flexibility to be used across any application sectors for optimal interoperability.
This research service identifies the key technology development areas within cyber security ecosystem and also highlights the loop holes within key sectors that could be compromised due to lack of a comprehensive security solution in place.
