Research Highlights

Research Highlights

  • Cloud operations and management platforms, public key infrastructure and IoT device management, software tools, application programming interfaces, data security and governance are among the top technologies that could compliment a more inclusive framework of IoT IAM.
  • However, it is important to understand that IoT IAM should not be confused with digital security options in IoT and a proper digital identity and access control framework needs to be incorporated that assists rather than hinders organizational expansion.
  • Data analytics and intelligence operations, shadow IT, data governance, compliance and regulations, IoT device authentication and next-gen gateways among directory-as-a-service and managed IAM solutions are brought into the fray of IoT IAM, albeit with various degrees of success.
