IoT has revolutionised the ways in which we do business. We now have new technologies enabling us to gather and transmit data faster and more reliably than before. But something else has increased just as rapidly, if not more so than these IoT opportunities – potential risks stemming from people who want to, and can, intercept the data you’re transmitting. How do IoT solution providers ensure safety and security of their end-users' data while also focusing on innovation and growth? Network and security management is an essential, yet often overlooked, facet of building a solution that will be successful for the long haul.
In the next instalment of our IoT Insight Series, Chris Francosky, Senior Vice President of Information Technology and Security at KORE, shares his insights from his extensive experience in the wireless communications industry. This interview asks and answers key questions about how and why organisations should build network and security protocols into their IoT solution framework.
IoT security isn’t optional – in fact, Gartner reported that network security is the most significant area of technical concern for today’s IoT solution providers.
