In our last article, we talked about behavior-based security, a whole new approach to answer today’s security challenges by preventing an attack before it even happens. This may have seemed outlandish even a few years ago but is now a reality thanks to progress made in areas like Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), and Big Data technologies, providing the tremendous computational power required to finally get in front of an attack.
ISEC7 SPHERE is constantly evolving around the needs of our customers, and we are proud to announce the exciting new features available in version 20.2.0. New core features include extending support for Mobile Threat Defense (MTD) systems, folding security into digital mobility system management and monitoring. Additionally, users can look forward to greater cost-savings through asset tracking and lifecycle management of devices. We are also extending support for Internet of Things (IoT)...
Continuing our exploration of the Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem, we will now move from discussing short range communications to long range communications – where longer distances must be covered, from dense urban areas to isolated rural areas, and an increased number of devices can be static but also in-motion.
Continuing our exploration of the Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem, this week we focus on the short-range communication elements of the data flow that allow IoT devices to deliver their payload. We will cover the communication options that support up to a couple hundred meters/feet.
Building on the ISEC7 SPHERE architecture in our mobility management and monitoring solution, our team has extended the capability to include IOT ecosystem. We are proud to announce ISEC7 SPHERE IOT for Smart Buttons, which can be configured to alert a pre-determined recipient list at the press of a button or a change in GPS location. When used in conjunction with BlackBerry® AtHoc® Crisis Communication Platform, our solution can push alerts out to those recipients.
IoT – what is it? The term “IoT” was first used in ’99 and has only entered our lexicon in the last 10 years. But what does it really mean? IoT as an acronym stands for the “Internet of Things,” which could be summarized as anything that collects data and shares it over a wireless connection onto a network for processing.
