Prominent Research Analyst’s White Paper Addresses Security Issues Posed by the IoT
ZK Research recently published The Internet of Things Requires a Security Rethink, a white paper by the firm’s Founder and Principal Analyst Zeus Kerravala. The paper is a clarion call for taking IoT security very seriously. In the paper, Kerravala states that the IoT represents the biggest technology shift since the birth of computing, and suggests ways to deal with IoT-related security challenges, including:
- Why traditional perimeter defenses are no longer relevant and how IoT devices can circumvent conventional firewalls
- The lack of IT and OT alignment—a major issue given that the IoT connects everything to a common network
- The role agentless visibility and control play in finding, classifying and securing network-attached IoT devices
