Internet Of Things (IOT)

The internet of things is a term that describes a network of devices that are connected to the internet. As it becomes more popular, the IoT reduces the number of devices that are connected by wires and increases opportunities for companies to implement innovative ways to improve business processes, monitor more effectively and reduce the chances of manual system takeovers. However, as new technology advances, IoT devices present new challenges as people with nefarious intent can access vulnerabilities in devices to access a network.
