Our world has never been more connected than in this day and age. Everything from wearable devices to smart light bulbs in smart homes can be connected to the cloud.
According to Juniper Research, the number of IoT (Internet of Things) connected devices will number 38.5 billion in 2020, up from 13.4 billion in 2015: a rise of over 285%. In Juniper’s report, The Internet of Things: Consumer, Industrial & Public Services 2015-2020, data shows that while IoT smart homes dominate the news, it is the industrial and public services sector – such as retail, public transport, smart buildings and smart grid applications – that will form the majority of the device base. This is why we felt it was important for our Attivo ThreatMatrix Deception Platform to be the first deception-based threat detection platform for the Internet of Things. We achieved that last May.
