It introduces complex scenarios and elements that an IT manager never would have thought about back in the days when networks just connected computers. Consider networks of connected cars or sensor swarms[md]or the plethora of now-connected consumer-class devices that have become the weak link in IoT security.
It’s no wonder that concerns about security have become the single biggest barrier to IoT adoption.
But the opportunity is, when you address these ...
