Why Read This Report

Your employees are also consumers, and their personal IoT devices — ranging from home automation hubs to connected cars — interact with the enterprise devices they use to access sensitive company resources, introducing new attack vectors to the enterprise. Adversaries can leverage these interactions to find weak spots and gain access to corporate resources on the same network. This report categorizes and quantifies the risks that connected employee consumer devices pose to the enterprise and provides advice for mitigating those risks.
