Hiring An App Developer With Vast Knowledge Of Internet Of Things

Technology is emerging day by day and enhancing the way we communicate. The increased shift of interest is also towards the way devices communicate with humans. In a broader sense, giving new means to communicate has actually become a richer experience over a period of time. Recently, with the way wearable technology is blooming wherein for e.g, your watch could communicate via sensors and pulse. This information relatively gets communicated to an app that sends you to push notification about the heart rate and other health data.

The technology that works behind this concept is known as ‘Internet of Things (IoT)‘. Hence, IoT refers to how devices interact with us and the information they produce. With IoT, our smartphone could directly communicate with the workplace sensors ultimately ending up creating an immersive and intuitive environment.

The single most underrated thing that paved the way for this technology to emerge and boost is our mobile device. Because of the wireless radios, sensors, etc, our mobile phones help us to communicate with other devices without any obstacle. These devices could be located anywhere such as home, offices, city center, cars, shop or even gym.

The Potential of Connectivity:

Our mobiles device remain with us throughout the day while shifting places from home to car to gym to office, etc. These sensors send timely updates and/or notifications when said mobile devices comes in the close proximity, it could be about the purchase or special offer on the list, etc.

Similarly, such devices also can help to bridge the gap by allowing to create an immersive environment of our surrounding by elevating our day to day life experiences and the way we communicate with devices. There is also a rise in integrated sensors as the technology is becoming smaller day by day for consumers to experience in the most convenient way possible. We communicate with them, work on it, use it to navigate, play games, etc. and also our primary source to access the internet while we are on the go, hence, we can add more context to all such activities.

The developer of IoT:

It is utmost necessary to have a knowledgeable app developer for your IoT project if you are not confident to develop the app for yourself. However, you can always go with the services of specialized app developers who can help you build a custom app as per your needs or project requirements. Additionally, not all developers will have the same skill set and can give you the design or performance output as you need & hence, make sure to identify the following the things while taking a decision to hire an app developer.

1) Years of experience:

This is an important factor as it will indicate the amount of severity and industry-specific knowledge. Usually, one can go with an app developer having minimum 5 years of experience. You can also learn about them via references, reviews of their work, etc.

5) Revenue Generating Apps:

Developers can easily integrate calculated cash plans and appropriate application costs. Even can take benefit if ads appear, however, everything should be based upon the mobile app features and then goes the subscription charges and in-app purchase features.

6) Cloud Technologies:

With shared information easily accessible via data from anywhere in the world, the question remains in place of reliability and accessibility and security? This can easily be handled with a cloud service provider such as Microsoft Azure & Amazon Web Services (AWS) to develop mobile applications. Cloud technologies are best for mobile app development because it offers scalability, access to cloudless server architecture for developers to expand and enhance as per the needs. Such solutions are widely used to integrate data analysis and other advanced technologies, all of which have become the part of the Internet of Things (IoT).

Twist & Turns Of Mobile Security For Enterprise Data

Technology adaptation is happening in every nook and corner of the world. With almost 2/3rd of the world population owning smartphones, needless to say, that most aspects of our lives are getting connected with it.

May it be corporates, businesses or industries, everyone is not only surrounded by it but also has to rely heavily upon usage of phones, tablets, apps, etc. In short, in today’s era, it’s hard to imagine lives without technology and its implications even for a minute task.

With such a rise in tech advancements, the security threat has also increased two-fold. From colleges to companies, who have to allow the use of mobiles and other smart devices when in the respective premises are facing immense difficulty to keep the security level tight because of the ever-changing tech-evolution. Employees having access to smart devices and phones while at work have to deal with sensitive company information every now and then which makes enterprises find it hard to protect data from being compromised due to cyber attacks through the same network. As employees and their devices access data and information from the servers & cloud, however, hackers have been successfully able to penetrate and steal through backend system gateway.

Meanwhile, some of the mobile apps also try to gain access to user data and information from the devices. Though these are general specific information such as location, calendar entries, cloud storage account, etc. Enterprise data that gets extracted through such phones are at an optimum risk of the leak via cyber attack. Mobile apps fall into the category where it becomes very easy for cyber attackers to breach security and steal enterprise data as the initial validation is approved by mobile user thinking that the security of the app is intact. Many of the high-level apps are at the topmost security threat when it comes to enterprise data. Furthermore, we have listed a few mobile security enhancements for securing your enterprise data.

Secured Network Connections

The problem arises when the same mobile device is used for work, home and for the rest of the public places. It is not considered as a preferred choice because public wi-fi is unsecured and always a threat and as a result, data can be easily hacked.

Downloading Apps From Store

Downloading 3rd party apps from the store is the easiest way to put your mobile device and enterprise data at risk. It is advisable to only download and authorize only authenticated & legitimate apps from the app stores.

Stop Device Rooting

Frequently getting your device rooted does allow more access and control over your device, however, it also gives permission to unassigned apps to access your data and in certain cases to make changes to data which leaves your device vulnerable to threat.

Data Protection Measures

Operating Systems aren’t left behind from security threats but mobile OS such as Android and iOS are preinstalled with security measures. You can even encrypt your device and protect personal confidential data as well as corporate information.

Security Apps

There are many apps available which can protect and acts as a primary defense of security measure. The favored suggestion is to use apps specifically those that offer anti-theft features such as remote wipe-out, tracking, locking, etc.

Password Strength & Permissions

Strong passwords and app permissions are a great way of restricting the access to the apps and also limiting their way of accessing confidential and personal information.

Conclusion:

We all have heard that the “Prevention is better than cure” and based on the principle, caution and care is certainly going to bring down any possible threat so as to keep your enterprise data more safe and secure.
