The Internet of Things (IoT) is exploding into the mainstream, even as the broader role of mobile applications in the enterprise expands. But concerns about mobile and IoT security are emerging even more rapidly.
The challenge, in a nutshell, is that there are currently no clear lines of responsibility when it comes to IoT and mobile security. Applications are developed and pushed out into the marketplace by their vendors with little or no attention given to security. These apps then pour into organizations that often fail to manage them, and indeed are largely unsure of what apps are being used in their workplaces.
In short, the problems with mobile and IoT security are likely to get worse before they get better.
