Securing IoT Devices?
Customers looking at Internet of Things applications all cite a similar concern – security. Security is also top of mind for solution providers interested in applying their own skill sets to generate revenue from IoT.
Executives from Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Cisco Systems and Forescout Technologies discussed the challenges – and opportunities – surrounding IoT security during a CRN-hosted roundtable, which took place during the XChange Solution Provider 2017 conference in March. The roundtable included Tom Bradicich, vice president and general manager of servers, converged edge and IoT systems at HPE; Bryan Tantzen, general manager of Cisco's connected industry and manufacturing business unit; and Todd DeBell, vice president of worldwide channel sales at Forescout.
Following are excerpts of the discussion around IoT security from the roundtable.
