Key IoT Transformations and Growth
• First of all, IoT is definitely growing in the number of devices. Since 2015, the number of connected devices has changed from millions to billions, and this trend is about to continue and generate problems related to the data growing exponentially.
• This leads to a second transformation, which is increased attention to the security of device networks. IoT devices are eligible to DDoS attacks, which may cause the code to become open for altering. In the third quarter of 2017, organizations that used IoT devices experienced up to 8 DDoS attack attempts per day, which is definitely an occasion for reflection.
• And the third one, businesses want to be equipped with IoT and have a competitive edge over other market units. Thus, Internet of Things evolves to provide its services to any type of business, be it industrial sensor monitoring or crop-destroying disease detection.
