There’s a lot of hype lately around IoT – the “Internet of Things”. Most everyone understands the basic meaning – controlling real things over the Internet. And that could be a DVR, a camera, your home oven, a thermostat, security alarm, lawn sprinkler, door lock, or air conditioning and heating. Even to the non-technical, it’s pretty clear that such capabilities greatly increase personal convenience, and can even enhance one’s quality of life. This is of course the fundamental reason the IoT has caught fire – the Internet takes on real uses, beyond just communication and information sharing. However, there are serious security requirements and concerns that must be addressed to safely control anything over the Internet. Silicon East has been deeply involved in developing and deploying IoT security and can bring deep expertise to bear to securely implement your IoT project.
