The Enterprise of Things: The State of IoT Security in 2020

The Enterprise of Things: The State of IoT Security in 2020

Forescout
Published by: Research Desk Released: Feb 05, 2021

In this first edition of The Enterprise of Things Security Report, Forescout Research Labs analyzed data from over 8 million devices deployed across the Financial Services, Government, Healthcare, Manufacturing and Retail sectors to assess the current state of enterprise IoT cybersecurity. This information comes from one of the world’s largest repositories of connected device data, the Device Cloud.

To date, this is the most comprehensive study if its kind. Some of the key findings include:

  • Smart buildings, medical devices, networking equipment and VoIP phones represent the riskiest IoT device groups.
  • Six of the top 10 riskiest IoT device types fall into the categories of medical devices and networking equipment.
  • Windows workstations represent a major cybersecurity risk to organizations, with over 30% of managed devices in manufacturing and over 35% in healthcare running recently unsupported Windows versions.
  • Commonly exploited network services like Telnet are found in all five industry verticals.
