Gemalto, a leading provider of digital security, has released the findings of its 2015 IoT Outlook Report, looking at the impact of the Internet of Things (IoT) on the telecoms industry.

The research, conducted in partnership with IBM, F5 and Wind, surveyed 1,000 respondents from a broad cross-section of the telecoms industry about four key areas including the: IoT Landscape, Information Security, Cloud and IoT; Networking Challenges; and Industrial IoT.

Among the key highlights of the research were:

  • 4% believe security challenges represent the biggest inhibitor to the IoT
  • A further 37.2% see platform standardisation issues as the biggest challenge
  • 4% of respondents believe they’ll be ready to monetise IoT by 2020
  • 2% of respondents believe Information Security is the biggest inhibitor to the development at IoT
  • 7% say between 10%-40% of IoT data should be considered “sensitive”
  • 78% disagree that there is no space for cloud services in IoT
  • Roughly 70% of respondents think private cloud platforms are more likely to power IoT services because of data privacy and  security concerns
  • 70% believe service providers must make full use of real-time data analysis to help IoT reach its full potential.

The research was conducted by Intelligence.
