SA IoT 2016 Security Threats and Trends Report: Perilous, Porous and Pernicious

Please contact us to discuss pricing Contact Us

Report Summary:

The Internet of Things offers greater opportunities but in interconnected environments, the security risks increase exponentially and the attack vector or surface is in theory, potentially limitless. Strategy Analytics 2015 IoT Deployment and Usage Trends Survey which polled over 400 businesses in June 2015 identified security as the number one challenge that presented the biggest impediment to IoT deployments according to 40% of survey respondents.  Six months later, security threats loom larger than ever as corporate enterprises ramp up their mainstream Internet of Things deployments.

Strategy Analytics 2016 IoT Security Threats and Trends Survey polled C-level executives, IT managers, software developers, consultants and systems integrators at 600 global organizations representing 30 different vertical markets in November and December 2015.

The results of SA’s latest research, the Strategy Analytics 2016 IoT Security Threats and Trends Survey indicate that corporations are confronting an IoT security threat landscape for which they may be woefully ill-prepared.
