According to Statista, the number of IoT devices is constantly growing. There are about 10 billion connected IoT devices in the world now. Roughly 90% of them are unmanageable and unprotected, meaning there is no centralized management platform, no centralized monitoring of events, settings are manually configured, etc.

In the current pandemic conditions, with a large number of users working from their home offices, the issue arises of managing information security risks associated with home IoT devices. Printers, Smart TVs, file storage, video surveillance cameras and other equipment are often connected to the same home network as the devices from which corporate data is accessed. Compromised devices may lead to a data breach. People who install and use all these smart devices at home often have minimal knowledge in the field of information security.

I want to touch upon the information security problems associated with IoT devices, as well as some approaches to solving these problems.

The B2B technology industry is a prime target for private equity firms and it’s easy to see why when the market is valued at $3.5 trillion. According to Forrester, that figure is only expected to double in terms of GDP from 5% to 10% in the next decade. With more partners requesting security, cloud and collaboration tools in the wake of the pandemic, TBI competitors are beginning to accept outside investments to their organizations, as it is the most effective and easiest way to keep up with partner demand.

Are you missing out on this multi-trillion-dollar opportunity? That’s trillion with a “T” and this flourishing industry is about to explode even further. If you’re unfamiliar, IoT stands for “Internet of Things” and in simple terms, this means technology uses sensor and software technology enabling things to become “smart”. Through this, data is collected and sent to a software platform or orchestrator. The data can consist of the environment and changes to it like location, temperature, quantities, consumption, and much more. Capturing this data can drastically revolutionize the consumer and business experience.

Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) is one of the most rapidly adopted technologies of the past decade. According to a recent study published by Dell’Oro Group, the worldwide sales of SD-WAN technologies are forecasted to grow at double-digit rates over each of the next five years to surpass $3.2 billion in 2024. This growth is certainly a testament to some of the more well-known benefits of SD-WAN technology, such as centralized network policy management, network flexibility and application-aware routing. But we should not overlook how some of these same features can be optimized to boost network security, nor lose sight of the new security considerations that SD-WAN introduces.

With SD-WAN, branch offices are now part of an enterprise’s network topology, with their own Internet egress. Corporate devices can access the Internet via multiple endpoints, adding a layer of complexity to network security. However, if properly configured, SD-WAN can simplify management, help improve security, and decrease threat vectors. In total, SD-WAN greatly improves an organization’s security posture and can ultimately decrease the stress and costs associated with a security intrusion.

In this article, we will review how to optimize your SD-WAN to its full potential for advanced security protection from threats.
