Workstations, laptops, and smartphones are no longer the only web-enabled electronic devices in workplaces. The rise of wearables and the Internet of Things has added more gadgets that connect to the internet at home. This has created more conveniences but also introduced new problems.
One of the problems brought about by the reliance on smart web-enabled electronic devices is the expansion of cyber threats. New devices being added to the enterprise network become new attack surfaces. They create more opportunities for threat actors to exploit vulnerabilities and launch attacks.
