Millions of new wireless devices are finding their way into our homes, cars, factories, and cities every day. This vast array of smart, interconnected devices, broadly described as the Internet of Things (IoT), is fueling innovation in every aspect of society and is forecast to grow to 41.6 billion devices by 2025 and generate a whopping 79.4 zettabytes (ZB) of data, according to IDC.
Over 80% of these IoT devices connect wirelessly today whether its over 4G/5G, broad-spectrum RF, Public/Private LTE or simply WiFi or Bluetooth. This vast wireless mesh has become the new network and new attack surface. Organizations, networks and cybersecurity tools were never built to handle this extraordinary volume, velocity, and hyper-connectivity of IoT. Moreover almost all asset discovery and intrusion detection tools available today rely on monitoring the wired traffic network. IoT wireless traffic will never appear on the wired network leading to rogue communications, and network back-doors – the new invisible threat.
