HOBOKEN, N.J., September 19, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- A NYC area cyber-security consultant and managed services provider (MSP) presents Internet of things (IoT) cyber-security challenges and how to overcome them in a new article on the eMazzanti Technologies website.
The informative article cites the proliferation of IoT devices and lists major challenges facing business leaders, including a larger attack surface, outdated hardware and software, weak credentials and lack of accountability. According to the author, organizations should employ a multi-layer cyber-security strategy to counter the increasing challenges.
"To protect business assets and sensitive data, organizations need to better understand the IoT environment," related Almi Dumi, CISO, eMazzanti Technologies. "They must keep abreast of evolving cyber-threats and develop proactive solutions for modern problems."
Below are a few excerpts from the article, "Master IoT Cyber-Security Challenges with Comprehensive, Multi-layer Security."
"From the smart lock on your front door to the printer down the hall, you interact with the Internet of Things (IoT) dozens of times a day. In fact, in 2019, the number of connected devices jumped to more than three times the world population. In addition to convenience, that growth has also brought significant IoT cyber-security challenges."
Protect the Entire IoT Environment
"The IoT ecosystem includes much more than the smart device, and each component of that environment requires protection. This includes the device itself, the software that runs it, the network it connects to and the cloud that stores the data produced."
Always Verify, Never Trust
"In contrast to the old "trust, but verify" model of cyber-security, many organizations have begun to adopt a "zero trust" model. Under this model, the system verifies all connection requests before granting access."
AI and Machine Learning to the Rescue
"Just as technology innovation increases the attack surface, evolving technology also provides part of the solution. Advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning allow for monitoring of the IoT landscape in ways humans cannot replicate."
