The march of ‘smart’ technology has seen every conceivable device in our homes and offices ‘enhanced’ with some form of connectivity. While this offers additional functionality for some, says Ken Munro, partner at Pen Test Partners,
There’s been a rash of regulation around the world as governments seek to address IoT security. It’s a positive step, indicating the market is maturing but regulating the IoT space is not without its challenges.
Do we need an IoT 2.0? asks Ken Munro, partner at Pen Test Partners. Being brave enough to take a new approach to an old problem is how technology gets adopted. It’s how pioneers from Steve Jobs to Elon Musk have revolutionised industries.
IoT testing can be a complex process and as a result many vendors aren’t yet onboard with it. Concerns over their intellectual property, the level of commitment required and how to interpret and act upon the results deter many from embarking upon breakpoint testing.
If hype cycles are anything to go by we’re almost certainly teetering on the brink of the trough of disillusionment with the IoT. Recent research claims that 60% of test deployments have failed. But while some pilot projects may have faltered there isn’t yet the weight of devices in deployment to suggest we’ve peaked. Rather, adoption itself seems to be faltering.
