Cybersecurity Critical to Safeguarding IoT/IIoT Connections (Download)

Secure connections are essential for many internet-based devices. As the number of devices connected to the internet escalates, opportunities to steal data or information also increase, heightening the need for internet cybersecurity protection. Networked information can be captured from any internet interconnection, including Internet of Things (IoT) and industrial IoT (IIoT) devices.

If not properly protected, those devices can become unintended access points. They can allow data to be subtracted and malware to be added to a network. It’s possible to make safer IoT/IIoT devices by adding circuitry and software to the devices, although more-effective IoT/IIoT protection is usually achieved by incorporating cybersecurity circuitry and software at the network level.
