  2. 2. Data storage has undergone a huge shift over the last decade, and an explosion of information driven by inter-device connectivity is creating similarly transformative waves in networking and security. Image source: Pexels.
  3. 3. Security threats represent the biggest obstacle to Internet of Things adoption, and Microsoft, Amazon, and Cisco face daunting challenges as cloud and IoT platform holders. Image source: Amazon.
  4. 4. Cisco estimates the current number of connected devices to be roughly 10 billion, and expects 50 billion connected devices and sensors in 2020. Sharing data between new devices presents huge analytics opportunities, but the data needs to be funneled and protected to reduce the potential for misuse. Image source: Wikimedia Commons.
  5. 5. New IoT devices open new security challenges, but the biggest vulnerabilities will likely be found on networks. Image source: Pexels.
  6. 6. Application programming interfaces (APIs) from IoT platform holders enable devices and software to interact, but a lack of standardization across networks and APIs leads to vulnerabilities. Image source: Pexels.
  7. 7. Gartner estimates that more than 25% of enterprise security attacks will involve IoT connections by 2020, and threat growth is expected to outstrip security spending. Image source: Pexels.
  8. 8. IoT will account for just 10% of IT security spending in 2020 according to Gartner. Platforms holders have to build in preparation for the IoT data boom. Image source: Microsoft.
  9. 9. Vulnerabilities for IoT data have potentially severe implications. Multi-layered protection is needed. Image source: Cisco.
  10. 10. Network segmentation helps wall off information, and will be one of the keys to making the Internet of Things secure. Image source: Pexels.
  11. 11. Digital walls can function as detection points and regulate what data comes and goes, but they also need to learn in order to keep up with threats. Image source: Pexels.
  12. 12. Amazon, Microsoft, and Cisco are looking to improve network segmentation capabilities through internal development and acquisitions, and stand to gain competitive advantages from strength in this area, but there's likely an even more important key to making interoperability a reality.

  13. 13. Even with improvements in threat detection, the different network standards employed by IoT devices and platforms will proliferate vulnerabilities. Image source: Microsoft.
  14. 14. Information needs to be movable between public and private clouds and local networks, but doing this securely requires greater standardization. Image source: Cisco.
  15. 15. IoT is already prompting a wave of collaborations, but greater cooperation could still be needed to reduce the security issue. Image source: Pexels.
  16. 16. Authentification standards would greatly reduce the IoT security threat, but the wide range of competing interests involved makes standardization a challenge. Image source: Pexels.
  17. 17. The next billion-dollar iSecret The world's biggest tech company forgot to show you something at its recent event, but a few Wall Street analysts and the Fool didn't miss a beat: There's a small company that's powering their brand- new gadgets and the coming revolution in technology. And we think its stock price has nearly unlimited room to run for early-in- the-know investors! To be one of them, just click here.
