This role of 5G and AI in IoT security are increasing in importance with each passing day. With the overall proliferation of IoT devices combined with their growing sophistication, securing these end points needs to keep up with the pace of deployment. While there are benefits that come with the use of these technologies for making IoT end points more secure, the data would also suggest that certain risks could come with using AI and 5G for device security. The article below does an excellent job in taking a look at both the benefits, as well as some of the drawbacks of using AI and 5G for IoT security.
Artificial intelligence (AI) and the 5G network are two things that often get talked about together. So, people often wonder how those two technologies could separately or collaboratively influence other technologies.
For example, how could they make the Internet of Things (IoT) more or less secure? Here are some likely possibilities.
One of the complicated things about IoT security is that it becomes more difficult to manage threats as the number of devices a company uses goes up. Microsoft recently polled more than 3,000 IT decision-makers about their IoT usage. Security was one of the matters targeted within the survey.
The results showed that 97% of those polled had security concerns about implementing IoT devices, although those reservations did not hinder their adoption levels. Moreover, two of the top challenges cited were creating strong user authentications and managing/tracking IoT devices.
The 5G network and AI could help with both of those.
