Global study reveals IoT adoption is at 69% despite security concerns

By Zenobia Hegde

Cradlepoint announced the release of a new Cradlepoint Business Intelligence Report, “The State of IoT 2017-2018”, which reveals the current IT practices, perceptions and future plans surrounding global Internet of Things (IoT) deployments. The findings of the underlying study revealed that even though over 69% of organisations have adopted, or plan to adopt, IoT solutions within the next year, 40% of companies have serious concerns around cybersecurity.

Conducted by Spiceworks, the study surveyed 400 IT professionals in the U.S., Canada and the UK at companies with at least 500 employees across 22 industries. Respondents are all involved with IoT strategies and decisions at their organisations.

While cybersecurity remains the top concern (40%), it is a desire for increased physical security that is the top driver for IoT adoption (32%), followed by improved operational processes (23%), reduced operational costs (21%) and simplified management (20%). Approximately 71% of respondents who already use IoT technologies say they’re using it for building security, often through security cameras.

Recent botnet attacks have infected millions of IoT devices. However, despite the growing security threat associated with IoT, the research shows that about half of the organisations surveyed are deploying IoT solutions on their existing enterprise network and 57% prefer to manage their own IoT device security.

“Following the spread of IoT botnets like Reaper and Mirai, which infected millions of internet-connected security cameras, routers, and digital video recorders, it’s evident that insecure IoT devices, even connected security devices, are putting organisations more at risk,” said Peter Tsai, senior technology analyst at Spiceworks.

“Before deploying network-connected devices that create more entry points for hackers to exploit, organisations should vet the security of all IoT devices they plan to introduce and ensure their company can adequately protect these devices from potential threats.”

“Our new ‘State of IoT’ report highlights a looming issue within commercial IoT deployments – cross-contamination. Companies that deploy IoT devices on their existing enterprise networks are significantly expanding their attack surface and creating new vulnerabilities to IoT-specific threats that traditional security tools are not equipped to handle,” said Ken Hosac, vice president of IoT business development at Cradlepoint.

“The good news, however, is that companies can leverage software-defined perimeter technology to spin-up virtual overlay networks, without trained specialists, that isolate IoT devices from existing networks—and other IoT devices, control access and shield them from being Internet-addressable.”

Nine in ten UK businesses would consider switching to wireless broadband

By News Aggregator

By Zenobia Hedge

Cambridge Broadband Networks (CBNL), the provider of licensed point-to-multipoint (PMP) microwave and millimetre wave, has today announced the results of its ‘UK Enterprise Broadband Index’. The survey of 200 businesses, conducted by market research firm Mobilesquared, highlights the gap between enterprise connectivity demands and the services they receive. Almost unanimously, 89% of UK businesses said they would consider switching to wireless broadband. This is coupled with the fact all respondents admitted poor broadband has negatively impacted their performance over the last two years, but more than half (56%) have not changed provider.

These striking statistics highlight the challenges UK businesses face in sourcing and switching providers, along with the significant market opportunity that exists for disruptive wireless carriers.

“It’s clear that a growing number of businesses find their connectivity requirements are growing faster than many broadband services can keep up with,” said Lionel Chmilewsky, CEO, CBNL. “To promote economic growth, it is essential that businesses have access to a greater range of agile broadband solutions which can scale more effectively with demand. This trend is likely to see operators drive more innovation into networks over the coming years, leverage emerging technology and develop 5G fixed wireless services.”

CBNL’s survey highlights that almost half of UK businesses (47%) are not receiving the broadband speeds advertised by their provider. Additionally, one in three businesses (35%) said that they have been negatively impacted by slow broadband speeds, while 34% experienced significant periods of network downtime. This new data clearly shows businesses are looking for faster and more reliable broadband options, yet half (56%) choose to remain with their current providers.

When asked why they opt to stay, one in three (32%) wanted to avoid disruption, 23% were tied into lengthy contracts, while 16% were restricted to services provided as part of a building lease. Moreover, one in ten (10%) suggested they would change at the earliest opportunity, demonstrating an appetite for viable alternatives.

The research highlights the significant market opportunity for disruptive carriers, with 89% of companies stating they would consider moving to wireless services if the speed and reliability was comparable to, or greater than, their existing broadband. With pre-5G fixed wireless commercially available, carriers have an immediate opportunity to leverage more agile and cost effective solutions that can quickly address this demand.

The need for more efficient infrastructure is illustrated by the fact that over half (56%) of businesses spend less than 30% of their IT budget on connectivity. More importantly, less than half of all respondents plan to increase expenditure over the next 12 months. This divergence between enterprises’ connectivity expectations and their connectivity expenditure highlights the importance to operators of innovation, in order to sustain and improve long-term network profitability.

Lionel Chmilewsky

CBNL CEO Lionel Chmilewsky concluded, “This data shows the vital role high capacity wireless can play, providing a more attractive business case to connect under-served businesses and quickly scale existing networks to multi-gigabit speeds.

“More specifically, the data shows the benefits that 26GHz can bring to the UK enterprise market and the value of Ofcom’s decision to […]

Save The Date! ION Belgrade with RSNOG in November

By Megan Kruse

I’m thrilled to announce our last ION Conference of 2017 – ION Belgrade will be held on Thursday, 23 November, alongside the Republic of Serbia Network Operators’ Group. We sincerely thank RSNOG for their enthusiasm and hard work to bring all the pieces together. Also, as usual, this ION has generous support from our ION Conference Series Sponsor Afilias.

We’ll have a full-day program and cover some combination of our favorite topics including IPv6, DNSSEC, Securing BGP, and TLS for Applications. We’re working on a draft agenda and will soon be filling the speaker slots, so if you’ll be in Belgrade in November or are already planning to attend RSNOG and you think you might make a good candidate, please speak up in the comments below or via our social media channels. A quick preview of some potential session titles:

  • IPv6 Success Stories – Network Operators Tell All!
  • Deploying DNSSEC: A Case Study
  • Lock it Up: TLS for Network Operators
  • DANE: The Future of Transport Layer Security (TLS)
  • What’s Happening at the IETF? Internet Standards and How to Get Involved
  • Collaborative Security: Routing Resilience Manifesto and MANRS

We’re still working out the logistics and registration details, so stay tuned to the ION Belgrade website or this blog for more information. We’re also hoping to live stream the ION, so even if you can’t be there in person you’ll be able to follow along online. (Stay tuned for more information on that as we get closer.)

We’re also working on locations for ION Conferences in 2018. Are you part of something that might lend itself to co-locating with an ION? Let us know! We hold several events each year in locations all over the world, and we are open to all sorts of opportunities. Contact us to discuss co-location possibilities, or how your company could sponsor an existing ION Conference.
