Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Security and Privacy: Challenges and Opportunities



 

 

LONDON, Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com has added a new market research report:

Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Security and Privacy: Challenges and Opportunities

https://www.reportbuyer.com/product/2307727/Machine-to-Machine-M2M-Security-and-Privacy-Challenges-and-Opportunities.html

Overview:

Machine-to-Machine (M2M) applications will be developed in various sectors of the industry at a rapid pace over the next five years, reaching an inflexion point by 2020 as the Internet of Things (IoT) begins a high growth phase. With increasingly more devices connected to the Internet in which critical business processes depend, the threats to applications increase in terms of incidence, severity, and impact.

It is important to recognize that applications are susceptible to physical attacks on devices as well as network-level attacks, which in many cases have different issues and solutions. The M2M industry is quickly recognizing the need to deal with security and privacy issues pertaining to M2M, but understanding the specific issues and solutions are not broadly understood.

This Mind Commerce research addresses security and privacy based on our many years of M2M coverage as well as recent interviews and survey. The report is divided into four parts as follows:

Part One: Evaluates M2M security issues and challenges
Part Two: Assesses M2M as well as related technologies (Cloud and Big Data)
Part Three: Discusses survey findings, insights and conclusions pertinent to M2M
Part Four: Addresses security within Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) integral to M2M and IoT
All purchases of Mind Commerce reports includes time with an expert analyst who will help you link key findings in the report to the business issues you're addressing. This needs to be used within three months of purchasing the report.
