The dominance of Internet of Things (IoT) is felt everywhere. From the smart home devices to smart connected workplaces to the latest avatar of smart cities and smart connected cars, Internet if Things and connected reality literally encompassed all areas of life. The connected devices are going to be commonplace in every area of living and for years to come it will continue to be a driving force in our life. IOT solutions are going to add value to life in numerous ways. Well, this is undoubtedly a great thing for our life, but like anything superb it has its flaws as well. Internet of Things offers a lot of security concerns that we need to take seriously.
Multitude of people connecting with each other all over the globe make data security a big challenge since most of the connected devices and their interfaces do not have a solid security protocol and arrangement. It is said that IOT devices most often are deployed without any arrangements for the data security. While sharing valuable data across devices became a rule with connected environment prevailing. addressing concerns to ensure data security became an important aspect. It is time, instead of being just enthusiastic about the possibilities of connected environment, we need to consider security concerns more seriously than ever before.
The depth of the issue is really alarming since in most cases the possessors of these IOT devices remain mostly in darkness of these attacks. The owners of connected devices remain mostly unaware because these devices just continue to function as normally as always in spite of such attacks. This makes such security threats doubly dangerous for the IOT ecosystem and devices. Time for IOT development companies to take care of such serious issues!
