Cisco has been buying a number of security companies, which has made its relatively tiny security business one of its fastest growing areas in the past two years.  -  OpenDNS uses predictive intelligence to block malware, botnets and phishing threats that antivirus and firewalls miss. Cisco was a minority investor and was one of the backers that invested $35 million in OpenDNS in May last year  The latest move for $635 million, is to boost its security business as cyber attacks increase in number and sophistication.

Why The Internet Of Things Is Still Roadblocked

Why The Internet Of Things Is Still Roadblocked | Future of Cloud Computing and IoT | Scoop.it
Its potential is huge; so are the obstacles.

Via Richard Platt

Richard Platt's curator insight, June 29, 3:55 PM

IDTechEx outlines in its report

1. The Internet is still not available in many areas of the world. While companies like Google are working hard to change this with its balloon-powered Internet and other low-power, low-cost ways to spread the Internet, success has been spotty to date.

2. There aren't many large potential customers. While there are roughly 10 billion sensors deployed today for natural resources, production lines, electricity grids, logistics networks, recycling, homes, offices, stores and vehicles, many are not connected to the Internet or even parts of a network. The investments needed to complete these connections won't materialize until the revenue potential is clear.  Some companies like Bosch understand this and are building services on top of networks of sensors, but most organizations have been slow to embrace the potential of connecting everything.

3. Lack of standards. More than 400 standards already exist, which is tantamount to there being no standards at all. Manufacturers need to be persuaded to build standard communication protocols for the sensors they embed into their products, rather than creating data silos with proprietary protocols.

Related to #2, businesses need to change in ways that make data sharing more appealing than data hoarding. So long as organizations think they need to exclusively build both the things and the services that connect them, the Internet of Things will remain stillborn.

4. Software to be defined. There are many software, system integration and processing issues, like determining what middleware should do and whether to perform analytics in the device or in the network. Related to #3, each sensor type collects and transmits data in a different format, and it's unlikely that any given API hub or integration site will accommodate all sensor data types. Little consensus exists, but we badly need standardized middleware anyway.

5. Security and safety issues. Smart and connected devices systems and other tools can be attacked or deployed to access highly sensitive data, as scholars and others have highlighted. Also, simply flooding the frequencies of wireless networks can paralyze them. An Internet of Things is no good if the things can't talk.

6. Power is a problem. Because large deployments mean the batteries in nodes may not be rechargeable or even replaceable, we'll probably need energy harvesting—in which systems capture and store power from ambient sources like solar or kinetic energy—to power a vast array of lower-power gadgets without batteries.

Richard Platt's curator insight, June 27, 4:58 PM

Why this matters: While Intel is hardly the first company to offer remote mouse software for smartphones and tablets, other apps such as Unified Remote and Mobile Mouse either cost money or are ad-supported. Intel’s solution isn’t as full-featured, but it could be all you need for remotely controlling a PC in your living room or during a presentation. -  A bare-bones app that just works  -  Once paired, the app provides a full keyboard (including arrow keys and a Windows button), along with a trackpad that supports multi-touch gestures such as two-finger scrolling. There’s also a scroll bar on the side of the screen if you’d rather scroll with just a thumb. In a thoughtful touch, the keyboard slides out of the way while using the trackpad in landscape mode, then pops in again when you take your fingers off the screen.   - If you’ve tried other remote mouse apps, you might miss some of their luxuries while using Intel’s version. There are no shortcut buttons for opening programs or managing windows, and no media control buttons either. And because the keyboard is built into the app, you can’t use your phone’s voice dictation capabilities. Intel’s app does just a couple things, but does them well and doesn’t cost a dime.

Richard Platt's curator insight, July 2, 3:10 PM

IoT devices range from robot-like units to tiny chips that hook into industrial or office machines allowing the user to fully control the device, or merely collect specific data from it.

  • The enterprise will be the largest IoT device market: There will be a total of 23.3 billion IoT devices connected by 2019 across all sectors, we estimate. Of those 23.3 billion devices, the enterprise market will account for around 40% of the total or 9.1 billion devices, making it the largest of the three IoT sectors.
  • The enterprise IoT will be massive on its own, larger than the mobile market strictly defined. That also means that in 2019 the enterprise IoT alone will be larger the entire smartphone and tablet markets combined, which BI Intelligence forecasts will include around 6 billion devices by 2019.
