E-mail Print PDF

According to Gartner by end 2017 20% of enterprises will acquire security services to protect business initiatives using devices and services making part of the Internet of Things (IoT).

"Overall revenue and port shipment growth was weaker than expected in 2Q15. Even the relatively strong 10Gb segment saw weaker results than expected," the analyst says.
