Security for the Internet of Things

Adopt IoT with confidence, maximizing benefits while minimizing risks and threats

The Internet of Things (IoT) is central to digital transformation in all industry sectors. We are already seeing IoT become a powerful enabler in city infrastructure management, in smart grids for utilities, and in the healthcare, manufacturing and automotive sectors.

The Internet of Everything (IoE), built around the global interconnection of people, process and context, is already starting to happen.

The massive potential that these developments hold is matched by a corresponding rise in threats. As our reliance on this new connectivity grows, the security, reliability and resilience of data and infrastructure also gain in importance.

Atos specializes in four areas that underpin security in the worlds of IoT and IoE:

  • Securing sensors and their operations
  • Ensuring the confidentiality and integrity of data in transit
  • Securing stored data
  • Securing access to information

With this end-to-end approach, we look beyond the individual organization to include all partners in the extended ecosystem.

Internet of things

French utility company GRDF chose Atos to address the security challenges associated with the remote reading of gas consumption from 11 million smart meters.

Securing your IoT opportunities

McKinsey estimates that the annual value of the Internet of Things could be $11.1 trillion by 2025. Security is a prerequisite for successful participation.

Atos is positioned to enable bold IoT and IoE adoption — by preparing, implementing and managing sustainable long-term security models crafted specifically for each industry sector.
