IoT poses some unique challenges for securing networks and protecting your operations. All communications with devices must be secured and managed by default, regardless of their network location. Authenticating and authorizing each device, however, can sometimes put a strain on available bandwidth and resources. Finding the right solutions for secure connections may require the services of a professional cloud services company to ensure full interoperability.
Demands for access to network resources, including IoT devices, must be prioritized appropriately to maintain productivity and proper functionality for all aspects of your operations. By creating a dynamic policy that first identifies the source of the request and then allows or denies access on a priority basis, you can prioritize key IoT activities and processes while managing other network traffic effectively. This can balance user experience with functionality for your systems.
