IoT security

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a collection of devices that are connected to the Internet. This is not only the things like a laptop or a smart TV, but IoT encompasses more than that. Think of electronics that haven’t historically been online, like copy machines, refrigerators at home or the coffee pot in the breakroom. The Internet of Things refers to all devices, even those out-of-the-ordinary devices, that can connect to the Internet. Almost anything with an on/off switch these days can potentially connect to the Internet, making it part of the IoT. Many of these devices become the preferred target for ransomware attacks. IoT security solutions protect from threats and breaches, identify and monitor risks and can help fix vulnerabilities.
