IoT Devices Worldwide by 2025. A $14.4 Trillion IoT market by 2022.
Unfortunately, security is not always a top priority for manufacturers who rush their products to market as quickly as possible. In many cases, devices are configured only once and never receive patches or security updates due to power or cost considerations.
According to an IDC forecast, it is predicted that by 2025 there will be as many as 41.6 billion connected IoT devices. Most of the embedded firmware running on these devices is insecure and highly vulnerable, meaning that many critical systems and data all around the world will be put at risk.
