We notice that the number of IoT devices is increasing rapidly, but that the security isn’t always up to date. Cyber criminals use poorly secured IoT devices for DDOS attacks or as a proxy for other malicious actions. IoT devices are usually stationed outside the reach of the owner, who are usually not immediately aware that they have become a victim of a hacker.
Thingsdata can advise and guide organizations in securing against these types of attacks. Simple measures: always install the latest firmware and change the default passwords. It is also very worthwhile to apply a VPN so that the IoT devices are not accessible via the public internet.
