The Internet of Things (IoT) has evolved over the last few years and is rapidly become an important part of our daily lives. Gartner predicts that there will be nearly 20 billion IoT connected devices by 2020. These devices are undoubtedly changing and improving our lives and businesses in many ways but securing this volume and diversity of devices represents one of the biggest challenges currently facing enterprises and their adoption of IoT.
Through the Singtel Innov8 Connect initiative, we’re seeking innovative IoT security solutions that can address the challenges created by the ever increasing volume and diversity of IoT devices and their environments. Proposed solutions should address areas such as threat identification, prediction, mitigation and prevention. In addition, we seek to address data privacy and integrity, secure communications, secure firmware updates, vulnerability detection and device management.
