Better IoT Security Could Grow Device Market
en

The Internet of Things continues to grow rapidly, but concerns about security are hindering the adoption of IoT devices. Research by Bain & Company finds that enterprise customers would buy more IoT devices if their concerns about cybersecurity risks were addressed—on average, at least 70% more than what they might otherwise buy. What’s more, 93% of the executives we surveyed said they would pay an average of 22% more for devices with better security (see Figure). Taken together, Bain estimates that improving security solutions for these devices could grow the IoT cybersecurity market by $9 billion to $11 billion. Device manufacturers can help move the market by learning more about their customers’ cybersecurity capabilities and improving the security and quality of their devices to meet customers’ needs.
