In the era when everything is connected to the internet, Internet of Things (IoT) devices with high constant connectivity and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) devices as sensors in the manufacturing industry will expand new business opportunities at the same time. This poses a security risk. In addition, for industrial control systems (ICSs) and control/operational technology (OT) security, which are important infrastructures, it is necessary to strengthen security systems and systems with a view to fusion with IT systems in order to provide services safely and continuously.
This CIS analyzes IoT security and sensors used in IIoT and OT security markets. IDC Japan's annual information service Japan Internet of Things and OT Security (Japanese Version with Key English Language Reports) focuses on the IoT/OT device and technology on security trends of companies, focusing on the products (hardware and software) that realize security and the entire service market — investigate/analyze and forecast. It also categorizes products by purpose and provides information on detailed markets, vendor trends/predictions, and technical future directions.
In 2021, we will investigate business trends related to services in the IoT/IIoT security market.
