IoT business scenarios will require a delivery mechanism that can also grow and keep pace with requirements in monitoring, detection, access control and other security needs,”

He further said; “The future of cloud-based security services is in part linked with the future of the IoT. In fact, the IoT’s fundamental strength in scale and presence will not be fully realized without cloud-based security services to deliver an acceptable level of operation for many organisations in a cost-effective manner.”
