Companies and customers are growing increasingly concerned about security in today’s digital-first world. Malicious actors have upped their game and cyberthreats are on the rise, causing many organizations to re-evaluate the security of their remote work tools.
Many manufacturers are taking the first steps towards the digital future by ramping up their deployment of Internet of Things (IoT) devices. ABI Research predicts that, by 2030, manufacturing and industrial firms will have deployed more than 49 million 5G-connected IoT devices inside their facilities. In the chemical industries, 5G connections are forecasted to reach 4.8 million in 2030.
