However, IoT Security is also a huge effort for small manufacturers producing most of the IoT devices and is often neglected, and it is found that only 48% of the companies put effort in their devices in development phase. Also, due to tight development schedule and insufficient knowledge, the majority of IoT solution providers ignore the importance of IoT security. Moreover, there are many risks on IoT devices including a large number of data transmission and not requiring complex password. Furthermore, IoT devices are resource-constrained in terms of power/performance/functionality, thus it is impossible for network administrators to know what’s going on with all devices.
Therefore, SiMPNiC, a professional IoT integrated solution provider, aims to solve these IoT security problems which may result in potential damages to users, and offer the best solution of IoT security Mechanism, Edge Security, to ensure users utmost peace of mind.
