The IoT does represent a looming security threat. A new HP study found that 100 percent of the studied devices used in home security contain significant vulnerabilities, including password security, encryption and authentication issues. However, the IoT is definitely going to happen regardless of security threats. Today’s IT infrastructure for large companies - and the military - will expand to include the IoT - wearables, smart devices, sensors, etc.
With the growth of the IoT, and the known security factors, many companies are hard at work to solve the security puzzle and make the IoT secure.
