Driverless cars, fitness trackers, smart manufacturing, precision farming, connected clothing, smart meters that measure utilities, smart sensors to detect mechanical failures, medical devices that can monitor diseases – everywhere you look around the globe there is talk about the Internet of Things (IoT).
IoT’s potential to change the way that businesses, government agencies and consumers operate and interact to drive new business opportunities, increase profits, lower operating costs and increase productivity is endless. Demand for connected devices is growing exponentially and organizations, from startups to the fortune 500, are looking to capitalize this trend.
Given the current state of cybersecurity and the potential for hacking IoT devices and infrastructure we need to make security a priority from the outset. Security for IoT needs to be a first step for everyone designing and building IoT devices, software and infrastructure in order to establish confidence that the products put forth can be trusted. To do anything less will lead to failure in the adoption of IoT devices.
The confidentiality, integrity, and availability of our customers’ data and IoT infrastructure is of the utmost importance to Eurotech, as is maintaining our customers’ trust and confidence. Security is an important aspect of everything we do.
