Europe: 65% of businesses lack control of IoT devices on their networks

A survey conducted in Europe by ForeScout Technologies Inc. revealed that, while most enterprises are aware of the business opportunity presented by the IoT and the growing number of IoT devices connected to their enterprise networks, they also lack understanding of how to adequately address the associated security risks. 65% of survey respondents indicated that they have ‘quite’, ‘little’ or ‘no’ confidence in terms of being able to identify and control all IoT devices on their network. One of biggest IoT security challenges identified by respondents was related to getting the various functions (networking, security, etc) work together within the organisation.
