IoT represents a complex, dynamic ecosystem that enterprises are struggling to protect. According to our research, less than ten percent of IoT devices have effective security built-in, which is why many IT teams are experiencing nervousness and frustration with IoT projects.

Most teams aren’t even able to offer a full accounting of all IoT devices deployed by their enterprise, let alone the state of each device’s security.

Common IoT Vulnerabilities

Most enterprises need help in identifying and securing the following common IoT vulnerabilities:

  • Use of insecure or outdated components
  • Insufficient privacy protections
  • Lack of physical hardening
  • Insecure network services
  • Weak, guessable, or hard-coded passwords
  • Non-existent or weak device identity and authentication mechanisms
  • Lack of secure update mechanisms
  • Insecure ecosystem interfaces
  • Lack of device management
  • Insecure default settings
  • Insecure data transfer and storage
