No Clear Methods For Identifying Connected Devices

As things stand, most enterprises today have a hard time even getting out of the gate with IoT security because they can't even get a bead on how many connected devices they're dealing with or where they exist. A recent survey by AT&T shows that methods of discovery are all over the map, with about half of organizations essentially just estimating in some way or another.

Useful Set of IoT Information/Statistics
Well done on the article regarding industry perspectives on the IoT.  It is good to see that the top concern is security; however, simply worrying about the issue will not solve the security vulnerabilities and weaknesses of IoT.  There need to be more security requirements imposed by the consumers of the IoT technologies.  Simple network segmentation will not solve the challenges.  Instead there needs to be more discipline when connecting to a network and interchanging information.

Again, well done on the collection of statistics and graphics on this important issue.  Thank you.

Great insightful article and good use of numbers.

The No 1 issuee or concern is IoT security, and this appears again and again. However I dont see the enough people doing something about it. They just talk about it, and asse it is covered and all safe as it someones else's issue to solve.
