IoT: Managing the Next Technology Trend
It may be a surprise to many, but the Internet of Things (IoT) has been around for a while. It is only over the last few years has it taken off, been “acronym-ized,” and started to receive media attention. It is called the Internet of Things, because almost anything can be connected and controlled. Things you use everyday are already IoT endpoints; your TV set top box, your smart thermostat, your remote car starter or even the car itself. Wearable technology like fitness peripherals and smart watches are a growing IoT trend and who knows where the next consumer outbreak of IOT will occur. From a business perspective, the challenge of IoT is how to manage and secure these new endpoints as they come online. How do you protect the privacy of your driving information or stop people from lowering the temperature on your smart thermostat? How do you push updates onto millions of buggy smartwatches? The possibilities of IoT are endless, but so are the risks if left un-managed and un-secure. That is where SOTI comes in.
SOTI is a pioneer in Mobile Device Management. For over two decades SOTI has delivered mobility management solutions and led the market with many industry firsts. For example, SOTI was the first EMM provider to support Zebra Mobile Printers. We enabled IT staff to enroll, configure, and manage connected printers along with other their mobile endpoints. No additional device management solution was required and IT Admin can do everything from a single, easy-to-use interface. SOTI is also working with Vuzix to provide an EMM interface for their smartglasses and digital AR (Augmented Reality) solutions. SOTI will follow the emergence of IoT and continue to provide industry leading mobility management for all endpoints, whether you wear it, carry it or drive it.
