Internet of Things (IoT) has seen great growth and much financial investment interest that should keep it progressing and evolving for years to come. But some are still hesitant due to the security risks that come with automation. Computer Weekly brought this interesting topic to us in their article, “IoT growth set to come from managed data analytics.”

IoT and artificial intelligence (AI) are the biggest areas of growth for the IT industry, and will continue to be, as IT decision-makers in organizations expand the use of these emerging technologies in their businesses. The slow technology adoption curve across various new trends doesn’t seem to be affecting IoT and AI.

It is expected that by 2024, we’re going to have more than 22 billion connected devices in the world. It’s a vast opportunity but it also brings vast risk. How do we begin to keep billions of devices secure? How do you make sure the data from all those devices isn’t compromised?
