Keep Hackers At Bay With Better Security For Your IoT Devices
There have been multiple reports of attacks reported by users who have been using smart devices. Though the number is still not out in public, it is estimated that the global smart home market will reach a value of more than 53 billion U.S. dollars by 2022.
Though there are many rewards to using such smart devices, it makes users more vulnerable to security attacks. A network-connected smart home is as vulnerable as a PC with a public IP. Using these IP addresses, hackers will be able to access most of the user’s information without their knowledge.
Devices can be easily compromised, and the hacker will be able to control all the devices in no time – all of this without the knowledge of the user. The best way to ensure that all your devices are secure is to ensure that you note down all the devices that you have. Update the firmware on every smart device that you own. And ensure that you use complex passwords in order to prevent hackers. Try using a VPN where possible.
Authenticating the smart home device before sending or receiving data. Using two-way authentication via cryptographic algorithms ensures that the data comes from a legitimate, rather than fraudulent, source.
