Business Don't Know How Many IoT Devices They Have
The vast majority of survey respondents are not aware of exactly how many IoT devices are on their corporate networks. This is because devices are being introduced by multiple teams within an organization, like the facilities management team, or the physical security team adding IP cameras to do security of campuses, according to Artes.
"TVs, DVRs, camera systems -- the IT team isn't responsible for those devices," Artes told CRN. "They're not patching and updating those devices. Groups that are responsible for those devices definitely are not patching and updating those devices," he said. "It doesn't change whether we're talking about health care and CAT scan machines or Corporation X and its video-over-IP surveillance systems. The problem is systemic across every vertical."
