Internet of Evil Things reportThis is the 3rd year Pwnie Express researchers have studied the wired, wireless, Bluetooth, IoT, and BYOD challenges facing IT security professionals in the workplace.

This report’s findings were culled from more than 800 IT security professionals and on-the-ground data from Pwnie Express sensors monitoring real life wired, wireless, IoT, and BYOD device data, and expert analysis from the Pwnie Express team of InfoSec professionals.
