What we know about IoT Security?

IoT Security

What is Internet of Things (IoT)?

We read a lot about IoT, but not clear what exactly it means, although we know about its definition so here we explain in simple terms. IoT is basically connecting of computing devices, mechanical, digital machines, objects, and people with one another. Ex: wirelessly connecting devices such as smart speakers i.e. our very own Amazon Alexa or Google Home, smart TVs, Apple Watch, internet-connected baby monitors, video doorbells, and even toys, CCTV camera’s controlled by smartphones.

What is IoT Security?

The technology that is concerned with safeguarding the connected devices and networks in the internet of things (IoT).

What is the difference between IoT and AI?

 IoT is a concept based on the idea of everyday physical objects with the ability to communicate directly over the InternetArtificial Intelligence (AI), on the other hand, is an area of computer science to create machines to do intelligent things the way humans do, or possibly even better.

How to safeguard our IoT from the breachers or attackers?

There are sensor-based things have minimal computing resources, and the opportunities for antivirus, encryption and other forms of protection within things are more restricted.

What is an Endpoint Security?

Endpoint Security

Endpoints to the generic audience it would be meaning that something which is connected at the end of something as if we are talking about at the end of a land shore .

So basically an endpoint are the end-user devices such as desktops, laptops, and mobile devices which need to be secured from the exploits by an malicious actors. Endpoint security is the practice of securing the entry points of the end-user devices.

To give you a more clearer picture check out the diagram below:

API Architecture

To understand the working of this API Architecture, you could checkout my earlier blogs on this link https://doctoolss.com/api/letss-understand-api/

So here I would like to tell you about the end-users which are the applications or the laptops/desktops/smartphones used by the users like us starting from the Web servers > Internet Platform > Systems/machines on which we work, this is how it works at the background.

The security related to the endpoint is the prime concern as the antivirus softwares provides comprehensive protection from sophisticated malware and evolving zero-day threats. As today endpoint protection systems are designed to quickly detect, analyze, block, and contain attacks in progress.

There are endpoint security providers by BlueCoat Proxy, Cylance End Point Security and many others in the market. To know more about the best practices or to understand the technology contact the undersigned.
