M2M Dream Challenged By Alarming Security Concerns - Spurs $198 Million Market By 2018

Tuesday, February 12, 2013 The financial golden goose egg of M2M services that has attracted the attention of carriers globally risks being thwarted by the growing security concerns in M2M applications. Porous security is exposing vulnerabilities in a large number of use-case scenarios, including SCADA systems, telemedicine, and telemetry. Most M2M applications are lacking the basic security requirements that have been a defacto standard for information and communication technologies elsewhere. If not addressed sooner, this weak link could throttle the successful adoption of M2M in healthcare, industrial installations, and consumer homes.






“The markets ability to respond to these security challenges at the application level is still underdeveloped,” says Michela Menting, senior analyst in cyber security. “When faced with security requirements, the focus has been to tighten the screws at the network level, often to the detriment of the application, leaving it unpatched and exposed.” However, the horizontal evolution of M2M will require full end-to-end security. Significant efforts need to be invested into M2M application security in order for the M2M market to fully evolve. Whether this is through open source initiatives or standards development, the demand for increased M2M application security will have to be answered, and sooner rather than later.

A number of M2M vendors have already started putting more emphasis on M2M application security in a bid to anticipate future market opportunities. The report highlights pertinent solutions from Axeda, ILS Technology, Gemalto, Novatel Wireless, and Sierra Wireless in this area. While the market is still relatively niche, ABI Research forecasts strong growth over the next five years, with global revenues hitting $198 million by 2018.

This report studies the challenges and the addressable market for M2M application security, complementing the analyses tackled in the ABI Research report M2M Network Security. These findings are part of ABI Research’s M2M Service Delivery Platforms, M2M Services and Modules, and Cyber Security Research Services.
