Internet of Things
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the concept of highly interconnected devices and services in the private and business lives of each and every citizen and organization. Connected cars, Smart Metering and Smart Home technology are areas in which the IoT has reached us already. It turns out to be a pervasive technology for practically any field of application where devices with local intelligence and sensoric or control capabilities are required.
With large numbers of devices in the IoT, this has become a serious issue for security and privacy concerns. There is an increasing number of media reports on major vulnerabilities and privacy breaches. In consequence, Cybersecurity is one of the most significant challenges for IoT and IoT user acceptance.
However, also the diversity of devices presents a challenge. Different devices may create different sets of data to be consolidated, may require updates of software and firmware at times, and require an effective asset and configuration management to keep track of the zoo of things out in the wild. Questions of long-running power supplies and failures after some period of continuous operation also have to be taken into account.
The flexibility, adaptability and scalability of IoT architectures is paramount. Cyber Vision knows how to cope with the massive data volumes created by IoT, but also respects security and privacy issues arising from such information pools and devices. We create secure architectures over a range of communications protocols and different types of devices, integrating edge computing and central computing as necessary. Applications are manifold in different sectors and often involve Big Data technology to manage and analyze the vast amounts of data generated in order to derive valuable business insights.
