IoT complexity to lead towards security vulnerability
As per Cisco's Visual Networking Index (VNI), it is predicted that there will be around 26 billion IP network-connected devices by 2020. With Internet of Things (IoT) reaching the levels of enterprise networks, government systems and general user's handsets at such a large scale, security vulnerability will continue to plague these connected devices. Due to complexity in protocols and standards, absence of skilled resources to manage IoT environment, low-quality products with vulnerable security measures, and intricate architectures, IoT devices have already been under attacks from hackers, which is predicted to get worse in 2017. fact, organizations are still not equipped enough to review even their popular apps for malware, which is resulting into DDoS attacks, and even leading to providing an entry point into the networks of enterprises for APTs and ransomware.
