10 Leading IoT Security Companies With Diverse Approaches
Internet of Things-based attacks are not unfamiliar, and their risks are top of mind in the C-suite when the topic of IoT arises. As a result, a variety of innovative companies have taken on the challenge of IoT security.
IoT security companies have fashioned tools and services addressing the IoT security risk that ranges from embedded security models that begin with initial chip design to threat detection monitors that reach the far edges of legacy and IoT activity. Frameworks targeting IoT security, use of leading software techniques and adaptations for cloud computing are among elements moving IoT security forward.
The product innovation is needed because the risk is great and sometimes very public. A full 26% of respondents to the Ponemon Institute’s recent IoT risk study said their company has already experienced a data breach caused by unsecured IoT devices.
For its part, research group Gartner marks a lack of clear security best practices and tools as the biggest hindrance to growth for IoT initiatives ahead. Gartner predicts spending on IoT security will clock in at $3.1 billion in 2021.
Gartner emphasizes emerging services and tools for threat assessment and discovery among a host of offerings intended to clamp down on IoT security incursions.
In this top 10 list of IoT security companies, presented alphabetically, we provide a snapshot view of noted players in the energetic IoT security tools and services space, looking at their backgrounds, technology and recent activity as well as some strengths and challenges.
