VDC Research, the leading market intelligence and advisory firm for the connected world, is pleased to announce another year of forthcoming research in its Security & the Internet of Things (IoT) program. Beginning in Q4-2014 and continuing through Q3-2015, VDC will publish a series of six reports on topics such as embedded security software, IoT security-as-a-service, and security issues in IoT vertical markets.

To help inform industry participants, VDC has posted a webcast on Security & the Internet of Things. This 10-minute presentation briefly covers VDC's research program, including survey data, market sizing, and insightful analysis on security issues for the Internet of Things. In the webcast, VDC's Director of M2M Embedded Software & Tools, Steve Hoffenberg, discusses security aspects unique to the IoT, presents a selection of recent findings from the research program, and describes upcoming research that VDC will be conducting on the topic. The webcast can be accessed here.

“Nearly every category of electronic product is adding connectivity to the Internet of Things,” notes Steve Hoffenberg. “With that connectivity comes security risk. Ultimately, how vendors and users manage that risk will make or break the IoT.”
