There are still major hurdles to securing always-connected IoT devices and endpoints to enable a true machine-to-machine economy. Why?
No standards – there’s no security standard or group of standards for IoT devices and device interoperability
Limited on-board resources – IoT devices have limited on-board resources and can’t run traditional security tools
Centralized approach – IoT sensor systems are highly-centralized
Lots of them – According to Gartner, by the end of this year 6.4 billion “connected things” will be in use worldwide, and over 20 billion by 2020.
The use of IoT networks as the basis for a large-scale cyberattack is just a matter of time. Existing blockchain-based solutions simply don’t suit real-time device interactions.
Available as either a standalone product or as a seamlessly-embedded component in our partners’ platforms, software-based SigmaDots is ideally suited for IoT applications in a wide range of use cases, including:
