This IDC Technology Spotlight Study, sponsored by Rambus, discusses key areas where manufacturers must address the growing demand for security and privacy built into connected devices. There is a growing belief that security is best done at the hardware level with layered security and implemented in a way that does not create complexity.

The study discusses:

  • Demand rising for fundamental device security
  • 27% of enterprise IT and business decision makers indicated a device manufacturer or supplier's proven security capabilities are the top factor in their selection criteria, according to IDC’s Global IoT Decision Maker Survey, 2018
  • 44% of those surveyed said exposed security concerns delayed expansion of their IoT deployment
  • Looking back at Meltdown, Spectre and Foreshadow demonstrate dramatic examples of the need for dedicated security at the device level
  • Mirai malware represented a new weapon that cybercriminals can use to increase the effectiveness of their attack campaigns
  • Security by design: Fundamental security best practices for IoT devices
