The Internet of Things (IoT) will lead to significant changes to cybersecurity that will last forever, a new study has found.
Research from Gartner found that more than 20 per cent of enterprises will have digital security services dedicated to protecting business initiatives using devices and services in the Internet of Things (IoT) by the end of 2017.
Gartner defines digital security as the risk-driven expansion and extension of current security risk dangers that defend digital assets of all types in the digital business and guarantees that relationships of these assets can be trusted.
In an IoT world, information is the “fuel” to alter the physical state of environments through devices that are not general-purpose computers, though devices and services are often designed for certain purposes.
Because of this, the IoT is redrawing the lines of IT responsibilities for the enterprises, with IoT possessing the ability to alter the state of an environment.
Even though an IoT device may seem new and unique, a hybrid of old and new technology infrastructure allows services to perform. Securing the IoT will cause most enterprises to use old and new technologies from all generations to secure devices and services.
A new characteristic of the IoT is the number of possible combinations of device technologies and services that can be used by the technology.
Ganesh Ramamoorthy, research vice president at Gartner, said: “The IoT redefines security by expanding the scope of responsibility into new platforms, services and directions.
“Moving forward, enterprises should consider reshaping IT or cybersecurity strategies to incorporate known digital business goals and seek participation indigital business strategy and planning.”
