Visibility is increasing every week and so too are network compromises - from healthcare to finance, it’s affecting any and every industry.

Both businesses and consumers are exposed due to the massive amount of static configuration that is activated on most legacy architectures. This makes it possible to disconnect devices that are attached to a system, before reattaching another device and having access to the same network.

Evidently, this is not ideal for businesses or consumers. So, to move forward with a secure, workable IoT, we actually need to put the brakes on an industry that is set to be worth almost $12.5bn in 4 years, revisit the whole foundation and look at delivering some level of segmentation across different services. Let me explain what I mean. Wearable devices for example, access a variety of different apps, so we need to segment and securely isolate devices and services so there is no navigation possible - meaning you can’t hop across networks, making it safer and more secure.
