Poor security infrastructure is the Achilles heel for enterprise IoT devices

It’s an exciting prospect to have your fridge communicate with your grocer and directly order food and drinks when stocks are depleting. Remote diagnoses of patients or companies remotely repairing machinery parts of their clients are other cases in point.

The advent of 5G will only provide another boost to the IoT ecosystem. It’s hardly surprise, then, that the global enterprise IoT market is predicted to touch $58 billion by 2023, growing at 26% compounded annual growth rate between 2017 and 2023, according to a January Market Research Future report. However, numerous security breaches right from the Stuxnet virus to Mirai and more show that demand for IoT is growing with little regard to security.
