What's on your network?
The Internet of Things will number 50 billion devices by 2020, and one-third of organizations surveyed by AT&T say they already have more than 5,000 connected devices. There are already twice as many connected things as humans on the planet, and IoT security challenges are adding up just as quickly.
Within the next ten years, leading analysts predict that 90% of all IT Networks will have an IoT-based security breach.
Most of these devices are not secure, and many of them will enter the enterprise. Through 2018, more than 50% of Internet of Things (IoT) device manufacturers will not be able to address threats from weak authentication practices. How many connected printers, drones, thermostats, or medical devices will it take to bring down your network?
Most organizations today do not even know what is on their network.
According to the ISACA European 2015 IT Risk/Reward Barometer, 51% of European business and IT professionals believe their IT department is not aware of all of the connected devices within the organization.
With more connected devices present in the enterprise, IoT security and visibility is a vital security step. Pulse continuously monitors for and tags any connected device, so that you can see any device discovered on or around your network.
By 2020, more than 25% of identified enterprise attacks will involve IoT, though IoT will account for only 10% of IT security budgets.
