How will IoT Affect Network Security?

Things are happening fast with the Internet of Things (IoT) and the possibilities of connected devices and streamlined experiences seem endless. New IoT endpoints are connecting to networks by the billions every year- and doing so largely undetected. It’s a daunting task for any IT team to manage, especially via the traditional methods of managing devices with agents.

It’s a topic consistently making headlines, one impossible to ignore. Gartner Research took note and released a new report Predicts 2016: Security for the Internet of Things. The report provides important analysis and recommendations for IT leaders who may be re-evaluating strategies related to purchasing new security solutions and services. The recommendations are timely as network security vendors, integrators and IT managers are all devising their own strategies to deal with these challenges.

The Unusual Suspects

When it comes to hacking your network, the usual suspects might not be who you think they are. Hackers look for any way into an organisation, and with people putting just about everything on their network these days, companies' attack surfaces are growing, constantly providing new back doors for bad guys to get in. Once the hackers get in, they can go anywhere. They can install malware and propagate, they can take your money, they can even steal your companies vital information. But it doesn't have to be this way.

ForeScout allows you to see devices the instant they connect to the network and get rich information such as user, application, network traffic and security posture, so you can control what comes onto the network. ForeScout works well with other security solutions which allows you to streamline your business and respond faster, and identify and neutralise threats.


Announcing the world’s first Security Delivery Platform.

Conventional security strategies just aren’t working against today’s cybercriminals. But what happens when you bring the power of network visibility to the security fight?

With the world’s first Security Delivery Platform, your existing security tools can see what kinds of data are flowing inside the most complex network. As a result, the threats are identified, isolated and eliminated before they do their damage – giving  you far more value from your security investment.
