Why Read This Report

The Internet of Things (IoT), or what Forrester refers to as the connected world, combines technologies that enable devices, objects, and infrastructure to interact with monitoring, analytics, and control systems over Internet-style networks. These IoT-enabled solutions hold vast promise, with the potential to revolutionize customer experience, enhance safety, improve health, and tear away inefficiency. However, the security implications of these devices and the data that lies within cannot be ignored. S&R professionals in all industries must understand the tremendous risk associated with IoT-enabled, -connected solutions and help their organizations adopt such technologies safely with a comprehensive security strategy.
