IoT Security is in the news once again, after the events of the past month, during which the Mirai Trojan caused a major DDoS (Direct Denial of Service) attack that took down multiple sites across the USA.

To prevent or contain issues such as this, it is crucial to look at the full picture when implementing an IoT network solution.
This begins with ensuring router access is secure. It would also be beneficial to keep devices separate from each other wherever possible, by setting up multiple network SSIDs.

It is also important to implement secure firmware updates, and  of course, strong passwords are always key – avoid default passwords wherever possible.

For more information, view this White Paper on IoT security, or get in contact
with M2M Connectivity to further discuss your System Integration requirements.

M2M Connectivity works with a number of leading cellular brands to offer dual SIM and failover solutions, as well as working on solutions to provide cellular with failover to satellite – please contact us if this is of interest.
