CEB consulting Foundation’s research Gartner recently noted that nearly 20 percent of the institutions noted attack at least one target iot during the past three years.

And to protect against these security threats, predicts Gartner that global spending on security solutions of iot technologies to $ 1.5 billion in 2018, an increase of 28 percent from the rate of spending in 2017, which totaled $ 1.2 million.
