IoT is here, and it’s only going to get more prevalent. IoT presents unique challenges to anyone responsible for their organization’s IT security. Today, many devices—medical devices, printers, security cameras, HVAC controls, and so on—can connect directly to the Internet, but may not have any native authentication capabilities, making them difficult to patch (and that’s if their respective manufacturers even offer patching).

Analyst firm Gartner says that “by 2020, there will be more than 26 billion connected devices—excluding PCs, tablets, and smartphones.” And a recent McKinsey publication says “by 2020, 46 percent of all Internet connections will be machine-to-machine, without human operators, and this number will keep growing.”
The interconnectivity driven by IoT has the digital workplace moving with lightning-like speeds.
For example:

Wireless keyboards connect to
monitors pulling in video connected
to your Bluetooth headphones.
Smart TVs displaying the updated
user stats, or streaming the latest
presentation from a tablet.
Employees airdropping files from
device to device in meetings, while
taking conference calls on
The big question is: Productivity vs. Protection: Can there be both?
Securing the network against cyber threats via IoT requires a multi-layered approach of visibility, security analytics, cognitive threat analysis, network access control, and comprehensive identity management. PCM can help manage IoT security and leverage the right technology mix to tame the IoT and make it work as intended.
