With the increase in consumer IoT devices, cybersecurity is becoming a prominent issue for residential customers. To help protect, as well as reassure consumers, all players in the ecosystem – including communications service providers – need to commit to making smart homes easier to manage and more secure.


  • Vulnerabilities in residential gateways and consumer IoT devices have turned the threat of cyberattacks into a significant issue for consumers, forcing regulators and governments to act. It's only a matter of time before the spotlight falls on broadband service providers, so Ovum advocates partnering with a cybersecurity vendor now rather than being forced to do it later under the scrutiny of the regulator.
