Security around IoT, and around industrial IoT in particular, is becoming a critical concern for businesses that might not be used to dealing with a new generation of cybersecurity threats. The use of edge architectures offers a great deal of promise in addressing those threats, but it’s not a drop-in solution to such problems.
Data gathered by traditional building systems goes overlooked because it is formats aren’t compatible with data formats used by newer IoT devices, slowing the advance of smart cities.
