IT: The Gatekeeper of your IoT Deployment

IT: The Gatekeeper of your IoT Deployment

By Tom Gibbings In the early days of an IoT project most of the team is focused on figuring out what data they want to collect and overcoming the constant stream of technical challenges. What is often not well understood is that after all the other problems are solved, the fate of the project is contingent on the approval of…

Software-Defined Infrastructure in Industrial IoT: How it Works

By Gareth Noyes In my last blog post I introduced the idea of a software-defined infrastructure approach driving and accelerating digital transformation in industrial automation. It offers a more flexible, adaptable and cost-effective alternative for developing automation systems leveraging the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). In contrast to conventional single-vendor, proprietary automation solutions, open software-defined infrastructure platforms allow for a…
When is an IoT Botnet not an IoT Botnet?

When is an IoT Botnet not an IoT Botnet?

By Mychal McCabe IoT botnets continue to make news, with new strains of malware infecting a range of internet-connected devices and then using those devices to participate in historically large distrubuted denial of service (DDoS) attacks. By some estimates the Mirai strain of malware has infected over one million devices since it emerged, with more to come following its release…
