b2ap3_thumbnail_internet_of_things_400.jpgThe Internet of Things is all around us, in our homes, our offices, and even our cars. While this connectivity can provide a more unified and automated approach to daily tasks, it has the downside of enabling certain security threats to go unfettered. A prime example are the IoT-driven botnets that seem to be increasing in popularity.

b2ap3_thumbnail_internet_of_things_presents_risk_400.jpgThere’s a reason why IT professionals think that the Internet of things is a major security discrepancy. Around 5.5 million new devices are being connected to the Internet every day, and are giving security experts a run for their money. The Internet of Things and its devices could potentially become a security hazard for businesses that aren’t prepared to protect their assets from hacks.

b2ap3_thumbnail_curious_use_of_technology_400.jpgWe’ve seen some pretty incredible technology developed in the past several years, but all of it pales in comparison to the epitome of the Internet of Things: the KFC Memories Bucket. Why? Because nothing says “the future,” like printing your family’s photos out of a family meal chicken bucket.

b2ap3_thumbnail_internet_of_things_400.jpgWhen you think of the Internet of Things, does your mind immediately wander into the realm of connected devices that change the way we interact with each other? Or, does it consider the security issues that can potentially become a threat to your entire network and technology infrastructure? Hopefully it’s a little of both, with an emphasis placed on security.
