Citrix: Break Down the Barriers to IoT with NetScaler Secure Event Delivery Controller
Citrix helps enterprises break down adoption barriers to IoT with the launch of its NetScaler Secure Event Delivery Controller.
There appears to be no lessening of the “buzz” around IoT; quite the contrary. However, concerns about data privacy and security remain the two biggest barriers to IoT adoption. Gartner states that “by 2020, more than 25 percent of identified attacks in enterprises will involve IoT, although IoT will account for less than 10 percent of IT security budgets”.

As we come off the back off yet another series of well-publicised cyber-attacks, the perceived threat related to the integrity of the global internet casts a murky gloom over the take-up potential of IoT. The proliferation of IoT enabled devices, delivering unprecedented access to data visibility and process automation significantly increases the surface area of attack — a fact of which enterprises are all too acutely aware. So, too, is the scale of the challenge in absorbing the data IoT devices generate. Cisco’s Global Cloud Index predicts that, driven by the growth of IoT, the total amount of data generated by devices in 2020 will reach 600 Zettabytes, quadrupling the data generated back in 2015.
