Research Study: State of IoT Security

Understand the security risks

Suddenly, everything from refrigerators to sprinkler systems are wired and interconnected, and while these internet of things (IoT) devices have made life easier, they’ve also created new attack vectors for malicious hackers. IoT devices are poised to become more pervasive in our lives than mobile phones and will have access to the most sensitive personal data such as social security numbers and banking information.

Download this research report to better understand the security risk associated with connected IoT devices. Some of the findings include:

  • 90% of devices collected at least one piece of personal information via the device, the cloud, or its mobile application.
  • 70% of devices used unencrypted network service.
  • 70% of devices along with their cloud and mobile application enable an attacker to identify valid user accounts through account enumeration.
  • 80% of devices raised privacy concerns.

A world of interconnected “smart” devices is here, albeit in the early stages. By 2020, Gartner predicts, the internet of things will be made up of 26 billion “units.” Fortunately, there’s still time to secure devices before consumers are at risk.
