Actionable Benefits

  • Ascertain the key opportunities and challenges of the IoT security and device management ecosystem through the lens of different organizations – each with their own unique strengths and innovative strategies.
  • Discover how these IoT players fare in the arena of IoT security against ten innovation and implementation criteria and obtain valuable insights regarding the state-of-the-art technologies.
  • Learn from their mistakes and obtain valuable insights regarding the strategies that failed, those that succeeded and those that have a higher chance of success in the future.

Critical Questions Answered

  • What is the current state of the IoT security market when it comes to device management?
  • Where is the marked headed? Which companies will have a higher chance of success? What are the key requirements towards that endeavor?
  • How does your organization measure against a chosen spectrum of cloud providers, security and identity vendors, OEMs and connectivity players? Where do they succeed? Where do they fail and why?

Research Highlights

  • Microsoft Azure and AWS are leading the battle, but cloud dominance alone does not guarantee victory. Intelligence and innovation lead the way into scalable, automated services.
  • Secure hardware module manufacturers like Thales and Telit boast high levels of secure onboarding and lifecycle management, yet the importance of critical partnerships is as relevant as ever to increase their market reach.
  • Securing the device identity supply chain is important for companies like Intel, Device Authority and Pelion, but flexible pricing models and a versatile range of software tools is a necessity as well.
  • Securing device updates and firmware-over-the-air (FOTA) powered by secure device identities should be chief among all concerns for IoT implementers.
  • One IoT application does not rule them all. Having a solution solely based on LPWA in connected utilities does not equate IoT versatility just as one industrial monitoring service does not mean that the IT/OT gap has been bridged.
  • Organizations must revisit their IoT monetization strategy and align with the digital security moving pieces prior going to market.
  • Innovation is king setting the path for future IoT implementations. However, innovation without purpose, an actual market foothold and a solid partnership circle is utterly meaningless.

Who Should Read This?

  • Connectivity and cloud service providers.
  • OEMs, gateway, device and embedded hardware security manufacturers.
  • Encryption specialists, digital certificate and device identity players.
  • IoT digital security service providers.
  • Governmental, regulatory and standardization organizations.
