What Is The Internet of Things?

The Internet of Things refers to the ever-growing network of Internet-enabled devices that can communicate with each other, with us, and more importantly, with a central system to deliver information.

IoT Applications and Security Concerns

  • Many devices that previously had no Internet access, and were therefore deemed as “secure” will now be accessible over the Internet and subject to new levels of vulnerabilities.
  • A hacker will always focus on the weakest link. Why attack a hardened firewall when there are weaker, more accessible smaller devices?
  • Challenges at the server end can also be significant. Firstly, the Internet of Things is expected to involve many connections, thousands, even millions concurrently connecting and securing data.
  • Considerations and compromises will need to be made between security, data loss prevention and performance to ensure a sound IoT strategy.

The Internet of Things and Application Delivery

The following considerations must be made for application delivery infrastructure in order to ensure a controlled and secure process for IoT connections.

Can your application delivery platform:

  • Handle millions of concurrent connections
  • Check server health at application level
  • Provide authentication
  • Provide encryption
  • Traffic manipulation
  • Prevent too many connections on backend systems
  • Process server draining

IoT Applications and Edgenexus

Advanced load balancers, or Application Delivery Controllers (ADC) are full Layer 7 devices, it can read the content of both the requests and responses sent.

It’s even possible to change the content of the message based on a condition. For example:

							
					IF 
the Source of the connection is in Germany 
THEN
Append the message with location=Germany
ELSE send the request to a different internal server				
			
  • In addition to this capability the Edgenexus load balancer provides full logging and reporting on the performance of the systems and the load, including the number of connections and throughput.
  • All of this can be managed via the intuitive web based management console or by the well documented REST API.
  • Edgenexus Load balancer will provide the scalability and flexibility to operate a secure, always-on IoT Infrastructure.
