IoT devices have been making headlines for many years now, as their usage has grown quickly in many verticals, including industrial, municipal and consumer. More than 1 billion IoT attacks took place in 2021, nearly 900 million of which were IoT-related phishing attacks.
SAM’s research team has developed an overview of IoT security developments and discoveries that took place during 2021. As the leading provider of cloud-native security and intelligence services for unmanaged networks and connected devices, SAM protects upwards of 370 million connected devices globally. This report’s findings are based on in-depth research, security sources, and data collected from 132 million active IoT devices and 730,000 networks. We’ve analyzed DoS, DDoS, brute force attacks, DPI signature-based attacks, phishing attacks and more.
You’ll find descriptions of the potential impact and severity of various attacks and vulnerabilities, as well as recommendations for how to manage them.
