A Comprehensive Guide to IoT Protocols
When network entities like servers, gateways, routers, applications, and connected devices interact, protocols give them a shared language. A protocol is a set of rules both network entities must have in common in order to communicate. It governs what their interactions look like, what values and attributes can be transmitted, how they’re received and processed, what security methods will be used, and more.
Why Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) Is the Future of IoT Security
Coined by Gartner in the 2019 Networking Hype Cycle and Market Trends report, Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) introduces a new architecture where networking and security functions are bundled in a cloud-delivered service. As IoT and internet-based traffic continues to soar, SASE allows enterprises to streamline network integration, security, and policy management of distributed devices with a centrally managed platform.
IPSec vs. OpenVPN: What’s the Difference?
The more distributed your devices or employees are, and the more valuable your data, the more critical it is that your data transmissions are encrypted and secure. You want your devices and users to have access to network resources without leaving the door open to hackers.
