The last couple of years have signaled a turning point for the IoT. In the consumer space, the popularity of connected devices such as smart watches, voice assistants, and smart home systems has exploded. 2018 will be the year that will continue to push the Industrial IoT into the workspace in a similar way. From building surveillance, connected cars or smart cities to monitoring workers in risky environments, the IoT has a lot to offer. For enterprises, manufacturers and factories, the IoT can revolutionize their entire operation and with deployment times falling, it looks set to take the industrial sector by storm.
However, gaining and retaining users’ trust in reliable connectivity, secure data exchanges and privacy is essential for the IoT to reach its potential. IoT Security is a crucial challenge and IoT players need to ensure an end-to-end secure IoT ecosystem that everyone can trust in.
