For organizations concerned with ROI, conducting open conversations with linelevel IT staff could make the difference between achieving bottom-line gains or missing the mark.
IoT Best Practices
—— Treat network security as a foundational consideration from the inception of the planning process, not as an afterthought.
—— Do not try to implement IoT applications using only in-house resources and IT generalists. Work with one or more trusted partners/vendors with IoT expertise
to drive initiatives forward effectively.
—— Consider whether legacy network infrastructure — which requires manual, error-prone, and time-intensive network segmentation and policy orchestration — can really meet the needs of this fundamentally different technology.
