In the guest chair:
Chris Rouland, CEO & Founder of Bastille Networks joined us in the studio this morning to talk about securing the Internet of Things (IoT).
Launched in 2014, Bastille Networks is the first security company to detect and mitigate threats affecting the Internet of Things. As the number of connected devices grows to 50 billion, Bastille is at the vanguard of IoT security with a patented, full scope solution.
Chris mentioned that we are quickly moving towards a future where many of us will 5 personal devices or more with us at any given time (between our laptops, tablets, phones and wearables) and he talked about the number of random devices that will also have internet connectivity in some way. Bastille sets out to protect companies by giving them a view to WHO and WHAT is on their network at any given time.
Of course we talked about the line between security and privacy as well!
In the headlines:
- Twitter is putting a massive data center in Atlanta.
- Mayor Reed is talking with potential local buyers for the Hawks and vowing to keep the team in the city.
- A chain restaurant called Cook-Out will take the place of Zesto on Ponce. So – it won’t be the same, but you can keep going there for burgers and shakes.
- The improv group Dad’s Garage has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help get them into a new building and as you can imagine some of the incentives for helping them are pretty funny.
- And there is a new battery-less chip coming onto the market that will be the perfect solution to power the Internet of Things.
