Technologies: embedded device

In an effort to better understand the security strategy and plans of connected device makers, The Security Ledger and LogMeIn have collaborated on a survey of 400 professionals at firms making physical products in industries including consumer electronics, “smart” home, industry and life sciences. Our study found reasons for both optimism and concern. On a positive note, there is strong interest in designing and adapting products for the Internet of Things (IoT) among survey respondents.

But there are warning signs, including the fact that significant gaps in understanding still exist within this population of device makers. If device makers fail to adequately address the most common risks to connected devices, the result may be a population of deployed devices with less robust security features that open the door to future generations of hackers.

Read the full report to understand common mistakes and how you can adopt the best security practices for IoT connected products.
