What are operators, systems integrators, and security software and services specialists doing about this? Why doesn’t security seem to be discussed as openly as other M2M requirements?

Current Analysis, the market leader in continuous, tactical competitive intelligence for the telecommunications and information technology markets, announced today an analyst view into the security issues created by the expanded use of M2M. Kathryn Weldon, Principal Analyst for Enterprise Mobility at Current Analysis, provides her insights into where security holes will most likely occur and where market opportunities lie.

“If M2M grows the way the ecosystem hopes it will, there will be millions and even billions of end points sending continuous (as well as more sporadic) data across wired and wireless networks, including proprietary and mission-critical pieces of information about customers and businesses,” commented Ms. Weldon. “What are operators, systems integrators, and security software and services specialists doing about this? Why doesn’t security seem to be discussed as openly as other M2M requirements?”

Key questions answered include:

  • What protection do APNs provide?
  • Where are the holes and what security fixes are currently in place?
  • What are the revenue opportunities for operators, SIs, device OEMs, application platform providers and security specialists?
