In honor of the major cyber security conferences starting later this week in Las Vegas, this post will give you a sneak peek of ARRAYENT IOT SECURITY WEEK which will run in our social media feed starting Sunday, July 31st. We’ve scoured the Internet for recent stories about IoT security we think you’ll find important. The importance of IoT security is all the more reason why big consumer brands should partner with an IoT platform company that has 1) been delivering secure IoT solutions for enterprises for at least five years, 2) is focused on security and has gone through multiple security audits by 3rd-party cyber security firms, and 3) has other big brands as customers who, because they are in the limelight, have a lot to lose and therefore vet their IoT partners VERY carefully. We’re posting these stories every day from Jul 31 to Aug 6 on Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook but you can get to them all early, right here:
