Peeping at the Future of IoT
As per the past trend set by the IoT devices, the growing statistics set our expectations high. As a result we can expect considerable growth in the number of IoT enabled devices in the near future. If believe the tech experts, more than 20 billion IoT devices would be in place in the coming years.
Nothing could be perfect and so as IoT. According to tech geeks, cybercriminals can make use of the Internet of Things to execute DDoS (Distributed Denial of service) attack. It is also estimated that IoT would not just be limited for the usage of individuals rather companies, institutes and other group of people can also make use of this technology to simplify and ease up their working mechanism.
