BitSmart IoT Summary Sheet
SUMMARY SHEET BitSmart For the Internet of Things Encrypt Everything™ Stronger security against hackers Reduce costs and improve efficiency from cloud capacity requirements Minimize lost revenue by mitigating service interruptions Increase customer satisfaction and confidence in your brand Why BitSmart For the IoT? BitSmart™ For the Internet of Things Securing & optimizing the flow of your data How will the Internet of Things impact your business? The number of connected things is set to explode, with Gartner forecasting it will reach 26 billion units by 2020 generating incremental revenue exceeding $300 Billion1. This includes anything from large-scale industrial equipment to appliances, electronic devices and wearables. Emerging connected sensors and networks will create value in many different industries with financial services innovating with micropayment technologies, medical and healthcare advancing with better patient monitoring and device health, while industrial, transportation and agriculture sectors will gain preventative maintenance benefits. As per a report by Intel, by 2025, the global worth of Internet of Things (IoT) technology is predicted to reach a whopping $6.2 Trillion with health care ($2.5 Trillion) and manufacturing ($2.3 Trillion) taking the biggest shares2. The more connected things, the greater the threats While the proliferation of connected devices has numerous benefits to consumers, it has the potential to create a myriad of security and privacy risks. The Federal Trade Commission recently issued a warning stating the potential security risks that IoT could unleash. As per FTA, the top 3 security risks would be 1) Unauthorized access and misuse of personal information because of lack of security measures. 2) An increase in the magnitude of Denial of Service attacks as more devices are connected to each other. 3) With the rise of connected devices infiltrating personal space in the form of connected insulin pumps, self-driving cars and other automated physical objects, the security vulnerabilities could pose a threat even to the physical safety of the consumers3. From a B2B perspective, this tremendous wave of IoT innovation will increase threats to enterprises employing either cloud or on-premise network environments. Data is the most critical ingredient of IoT. Hackers and cyber-terrorists will have more opportunities to target vulnerabilities in applications and infiltrate your data, putting you and your customers at risk. Be proactive in your approach to the Internet of Things Safeguarding your data and devices within an IoT strategy cannot be covered with traditional enterprise security solutions. The idea of networking various equipment, appliances and hardware components is relatively new and security has not been baked into product design. As per a recent survey conducted among CIO’s and director level IT management, 71% of the executives believe that the security needed to protect the IoT devices is 12 – 24 months behind the deployment of these devices4. Hence, there are currently insufficient security capabilities in the emerging IoT standards to manage the long life cycles expected in many IoT devices5. The other issue surrounds the immense spike in data traffic and the squeeze on networks. You require a solution that is designed to both optimize and secure your data in order to reap the profits from the Internet of Things. ■ BitSmart: The IoT solution for strong encryption and data optimization BitSmart™ is a patented software-only solution deployed on networks, clouds, mobile applications and other endpoints that optimizes, encrypts and secures your IoT data and devices. BitSmart uses an ultra-fast and secure proprietary encryption algorithm that is both more secure and less resource-intensive, enabling ultimate performance and security simultaneously across devices, networks, and applications. Because it is highly efficient, BitSmart can be used to encrypt all internal data without impacting the user experience.
