Not always easy to update IOT device security.

IOT devices usually lack end-to-end security.

Devices still rely on passwords

At Microsoft and across the industry, there’s a broad movement away from passwords to authentication of devices. This is also a feature of Azure Sphere.

Hand sanitiser dispensers raise IOT security concern

#IoTSecurity & hand sanitisers..yep hand sanitisers @microsoft hashtag#iot

The task of securing IOT has extended to an unlikely device – dispensers of hand-sanitising gel.

Microsoft has revealed that Azure-connected Purell Smartlink dispensers will be upgraded to protect them from cyber-attacks.

More than 100 US healthcare facilities have deployed 25,000 of the dispensers, which dispense gel and track how often people are cleaning their hands. Sensors in the machines also detect how many people enter and leave a room. The resulting data is sent to Microsoft’s Azure cloud for analysis.
