Bluesnarfing: The Modern-Day Security Vulnerability in a Wireless and Mobile World

Once known as the next big thing in wireless communication since the invention of mobile phones, Bluetooth technology has since gained a reputation as one of the gaping barriers in mobile and wireless device security — almost as bad as public Wi-Fi access points.

Why You May Need to Rethink Your IoT Security Plan

Traditional cybersecurity methods are still, to this day, playing catch-up. The warning signs were there years ago, and the IoT (Internet of Things) is following the same path. 4,000 IoT security attacks, or around 170 per hour, breach enterprises each day. 54% of those attacks are unsolved and typically stem from poor BYOD protocols. Despite that, we’re still unconvinced. So what’s the big deal with IoT security?

The Big, Bad World of IoT Security

The Big, Bad World of IoT Security
Get ready: IoT is everywhere, and we aren’t ready for its explosion.

Not only will the average individual own over 3 IoT devices by 2020, they’ll also teeter into a whopping 28 billion total devices the following year.  We may be jaded by billion-trillion-quadrillion-levels at this point, but consider this: Just two years ago, connected IoT devices barely broke the […]
