Three Steps to a Secure IoT Networkby Najam Sg SEO Analyst Three Steps to a Secure IoT Network
The complexity, connections, and speed that characterize the Internet of Things demand a redefinition of network security strategy. At Pulse Secure, we recommend – and support through our Pulse Policy Secure solution – three steps to ensure a secure IoT network:
- Choosing the right IoT systems for your business. If you want to deploy IoT devices – a necessity to stay competitive in today’s marketplace – you need to create a solid strategy before you put devices in place. A strategy enables you to create a secure and robust ecosystem from the ground up. It is infinitely easier to secure your IoT network if you take a proactive, strategic approach than to retrofit security onto IoT devices and systems that are inherently insecure.
- Deploying IoT systems at the right network segment. Once you have chosen your IoT devices strategically, it is critical to segment your network to protect your data and to mitigate risk.
- Providing the right Secure Access. With an IoT system in place, you need to maintain visibility of every endpoint on the network and establish strong authentication protocols and rules to ensure that only appropriate users can access devices, systems, and data.
If these applications perform well, the business will do well. The
trouble is, they typically don’t perform well: 88 percent of companies*
report poor application performance as a real business issue. source
