Securing the IoT

October 26, 2015

Security is one of the biggest barriers to mainstream consumer IoT adoption. According to a Fortinet survey, 68% of global homeowners are concerned about a data breach from a connected device. They’re right to be cautious – a recent Symantec study of 50 commercially available smart devices found that none of them had sufficient security measures.

Smart products need robust, enterprise-grade, end to end security measures that protect the products themselves, your customers, and the data that they generate together. To drive consumer adoption and realize the full potential of the IoT, it is critical that its security is taken more seriously.

It’s complex subject matter, with multiple considerations at different levels of the IoT, including:

  • How users, apps and devices are authenticated and approved
  • How data is protected in transit and at rest
  • How to enable permissioning customization across different use cases

Our guide to IoT security
We’ve collated our experience and the insights we’ve gained from working closely with the manufacturers who are leading the charge in building smart products. The result is our latest white paper, Securing the Internet of Things.

At EVRYTHNG, we believe that IoT security requires a robust, end-to-end approach that starts at the software platform level. Our security is architected to provide an enterprise-grade solution, with a methodology that encompasses 5 fundamental building blocks.

In the white paper, we outline best practice approaches to IoT security, and explore how the EVRYTHNG IoT Smart Products Platform is architected to provide a robust, end-to-end solution.

We hope Securing the Internet of Things proves a valuable resource for you in your research. If you’ve got any comments on the white paper, or want to talk about an upcoming project, please do get in touch!
