Securing the Internet of Things

A wide variety of internet-connected devices such as smart-assistant speakers like Alexa and Google Home, security systems, thermostats, electronic appliances, lights in household and commercial environments, alarm clocks, and more, collectively referred to as Internet of Things (IoT) devices, are becoming more and more popular in both residential and commercial settings.

The security of these devices on your network has to be considered carefully. Most businesses will need to adapt their network security architecture in response to IoT. Many businesses with IoT on their network are investing in additional network security technology to support IoT, including network access control and authentication technologies. Identity-based access controls are often useless for IoT devices that are not associated with an actual end-user, so new controls are required.

Depending on your business category, securing or separating your mission-critical systems could be a matter of life and death. The team at Axigent can provide the essential task of assessing the security of your company’s network infrastructure and how IoT devices will impact its health and performance, and give you peace of mind!
