IoT Services

Enabling the Connected World. Streamlining the Complexities.

As many as 1 trillion connected devices will exist by 2025. Everything is connected, from consumer electronics and home appliances to medical devices and industrial equipment. Deploying, securing, and maintaining these connected devices is complex and requires many different capabilities and technologies throughout a single device lifecycle.

Protiviti’s end-to-end IoT services address this complex, connected domain by empowering your organisation to deploy, secure, and maintain IoT devices throughout their lifecycle, ultimately reducing costs, increasing revenue, improving your customer experience, and unlocking valuable insights.

Scott Laliberte, Managing Director, explains how we help bridge the gap between technology and business leaders to transform their technology and reap the benefits, while mitigating the risks from both a business and security perspective.

Enabling Secure IoT Solutions

The Internet of Things refers to connected devices that can “talk” to other devices without human interaction. Using a combination of sensors and connectivity technology such as Bluetooth, WiFi, cellular networks, and others, information regarding people and processes is shared and updated.

Combined with other capabilities such as data storage, analytics, visualization tools, and security, connected devices impact how all industries, governments, and consumers interact with the physical world.

Chances are you use connected devices every day and may not even be conscious that these are IoT devices. Those who have grown up in the digital world often expect connectivity and the benefits it provides in our day-to-day activities. But as business usage of IoT expands, organizations are seeing increased benefits, including:

  • Automated and efficient processes
  • Access to live, updated data
  • Better utilization of human resources and increased productivity
  • Enhanced asset utilization
  • Cost savings
  • Innovation through new service offerings and capabilities

Challenges in Implementing IoT

The IoT provides organizations with limitless opportunities to innovate, gain a competitive advantage, and realize operational efficiencies. As organizations pursue digital transformation by employing IoT devices, the security and privacy of these solutions should be top of mind—but is often overlooked or not considered. We are seeing a significant increase in organizations that: 

  • Do not have an inventory of current assets being utilized in their organization with IoT capabilities 
  • Do not have the capability to identify potential threats or monitor suspicious traffic on these devices 
  • Do not have a plan, nor the skills and ability to update IoT devices if a security vulnerability is identified 
  • Do not have controls in place to manage security and risks that IoT introduces to an organization 
  • Do not have a technology or business resiliency plan 
  • ​Integrate IoT with other technologies to take advantage of other capabilities, including blockchain, artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotic process automation, cloud, and enterprise data analytics.
