The API revolution is fuelling digital transformation across a spectrum of industries and opening the way for new IoT use cases. But capturing the full commercial potential of the IoT will depend on addressing lingering consumer concerns over consent and privacy, explains Eve Maler

The Internet of Things has come a long way in the five years since the first IoT Day in 2011. But, there is a darker side to its success, with thousands of high-profile hacks having been carried out on connected devices.
In this exclusive interview with ForgeRock, VP of Emerging Technology, Eve Maler tells IoT Now what organisations can do to better protect customer information online.
ForgeRock® has introduced its newest identity management platform, including an implementation of the User-Managed Access (UMA) standard.
