CRN IoT Roundtable: Closing The Door On The 'Open Invitation' To Hackers

How are you approaching the IoT security market as a whole? What is your strategy for IoT security?

Tom Bradicich: Todd is correct. Security is essential. … I think it's not led with in many ways, it's a lot like air, food, and water. It's absolutely essential, but it's not the essence of what you're doing. It's a way to manage what you're doing in a way that it doesn't get messed up, either by an anomaly or a hostile attack, and that's why we [HPE] recently purchased Niara, a company that has anomaly detection and analytics.
