Security is a concern with IoT deployment, but what about edge security?


IoT adopters, quite rightly, have serious concerns about the security of the IoT devices and networks that they deploy. Because security is yet to be built into the design phase of these devices; they are inherently insecure -- and future manufacturers must respond to this. Research carried out by the IMC, (the International IoT M2M council) and commissioned by Pod Group confirms this. It also found a demand for dedicated IoT security solutions for IoT devices already in the market. As edge computing begins to come into play as well, edge security must be considered.
