IoT Security Concerns within the Enterprise


The Internet of Things (IoT) plays a key role in the monitoring, supply chain, facility management, and manufacturing processes used by many organizations. Even though many IoT deployments are mature, a high number have experienced security breaches that were more costlier than breaches in other parts of the enterprise IT infrastructure. This is partially because the IT and security practices commonly used when deploying a new network device or application were not applied to a number of IoT projects. The result can be security coverage gaps and inconsistencies in or between infrastructure devices, network connections, web applications, and collection and analysis tools.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss the current state of IoT security, identify potential threat vectors, describe how to assess vulnerabilities, and suggest remediation processes. We’ll also look at ways in which Spirent’s SecurityLabsTM, CyberFloodTM testing solution, testing expertise, and wide range of managed and penetration testing services can help companies move forward with their IoT deployments while improving both performance and security.
