Internet of Things Security: Focus on Identity and Access Management
By: Abhi Dugar
This IDC Market Perspective examines identity and access management (IAM) consideration for the Internet of Things (IoT) environment. The document explores what is different about addressing security in IoT applications compared with traditional IT. The document also highlights developing industry initiatives for standardization and best practices targeting IoT deployments and provides recommendations for incumbent and new IAM vendors in the space.
"Identity and access management for IoT requires integrating multiple access management elements into a cohesive and synchronized implementation," said Abhi Dugar, research director, IoT Security. "Solutions should be easy to use and deploy, yet they should not compromise security or the safety and reliability needs of IoT applications."
