IoT: A Look Back at 2015, a Look Forward into 2016 and Beyond

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the interconnected set of intelligent devices and objects designed specifically to enable the virtualization of the physical world. The devices can create new value, services and perspectives from the sharing and analysis of their observations of the world around them. Nearly every type of business that exists today can employ IoT systems to create cost savings and efficiencies or support new business models.

In this webinar, we look into how the Internet of Things market is evolving, with major developments in 2015 and our predictions for 2016. We review the considerable M&A activity in the sector, as well as initial findings of enterprise IoT adoption from 451 Research's Voice of the Enterprise. The webinar also previews the key focus areas of 451 Research's Internet of Things research channel for 2016.

Security summer camp 2015: Three overarching themes at Black Hat, DEF CON and BSidesLV

Security summer camp 2015: Three overarching themes at Black Hat, DEF CON and BSidesLV
Analyst: Scott Crawford

The late summer week of Las Vegas security conferences – Black Hat, DEF CON and BSidesLV – together make up one of the year's most significant industry checkpoints. Although the booming interest in security has made the focus, particularly at Black Hat, more commercial in recent years, these conferences have maintained their position as leading forums for security researchers and practitioners, and as such remain bellwethers of many of the topics and trends security professionals care most about.

The 451 Take

This year, three overarching topics collectively stood out at every venue of the Vegas conference trifecta: the security of technology-equipped automobiles as a focus for growing concerns about security in the Internet of Things, controversy over the sharing of intelligence and security research tools and the role of government in both, and more subtle yet distinct changes in the nature of the security market itself. In this and two other related 451 Research spotlights, 451 Research analysts take a look at these and related themes that will set the tone of the industry in the months to come.
