Can IoT help make the enterprise more secure?

It’s no secret that the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) presents massive new security challenges. Heck, I’ve written about the issue here more than once. But one company claims that enterprise IoT also shows promise for addressing key security issues.

Tim Lang, CTO at BI and data analytics firm MicroStrategy, notes that 70 percent of security breaches come from the inside, and he says Enterprise Internet of Things (EIoT) can help enterprises “monitor and prevent these breaches before they happen.” 

Lang cites McKinsey estimates claiming that 70 percent of the value created by IoT over the next decade will flow from business-to-business (B2B) applications. He says these B2B applications will use IoT technology to improve many elements of business operations, including security.

The biggest threats lie within

Specifically, EIoT is positioned to help companies mitigate internal security risks.
