Home security and remote monitoring systems are one of the immediate applications for the Internet of Things (IoT). They can alert you to fires and intrusions, provide a reassuring view inside your home, and let you control your home systems remotely. But could they – and other IoT applications—open your home to hackers?
A new study by Hewlett Packard Enterprise Security, “Internet of Things Security Study: Home Security Systems Report,” uses HPE Fortify on Demand to explore the cyber security features of 10 leading systems. You need to understand the results if you are considering a home security system – or any of the IoT applications coming down the pike. Read the report to learn the glaring security problems found in almost all systems tested.
