Taking the IoT On-Premise

The Internet of Things is playing a considerable role everywhere–it is used in both homes and businesses. For large organizations worried about security or enterprises that hold sensitive data about customers, IoT might be too “new” and therefore “unfamiliar” and “insecure.” With the legal implications of personal data breaches, such as the leak of personal information by Facebook to Cambridge Analytica in 2018, it is no wonder that large organizations are taking extra precautions to protect user data.

There is also an increased crackdown on data security from the U.S. and international governments. Protecting data is a serious business, and it has created new jobs and new products. For organizations wanting to implement IoT and secure some of its significant benefits, the approach to data security is a hard choice in a complicated landscape.

Intranet of Things

There has been a significant uptick in requests for “offline” or “on-premise” IoT (a.k.a. The Intranet of Things) solutions. The more substantial number of requests for offline or on-premise IoT is due to the issues mentioned previously, but it can be difficult for organizations to implement and adopt some of the IoT benefited without risking the information they have thus far worked so hard to protect. As outlined in a previous chapter regarding IoT Security, it comes down to a few things: getting the equipment from trusted manufacturers that take end device security seriously, utilizing software that is secured and from a trusted resource that places its core value in security first, and personnel with the proper backgrounds in the disciplines needed to make an IoT project successful.
