Companies with better internet security indexes tend to be better seen by customers. Despite the obviousness of that statement, not every company is aware of that matter before growing its own investments in the technology area. And the financial factor not only weights in that balance, but also the privacy of the users.

However, due to the growing demand for the internet and computing networks, ensuring the protection of data and personal information it is still a big challenge, even for the more advanced and solid systems – with the IoT this is not any different.

The fast and accurate maturation of the solutions produced by the IoT developers has already made viable the creation of platforms that allow the direct connection between devices in a secure way.

Proof of this is the statement of Oh-Hyun Kwon, Vice Chairman and global CEO of Samsung Electronics, who already trusts in the IoT not only as a business efficiency revolution, but also in its potential of life changing to the society. This is excellent news, because now developers also have at their side the big manufacturers, certainly leading the IoT security to a higher level of trust.

Another major issue to achieve a desirable level of security on the IoT is directly related to a good comprehension of these platforms’ functionalities by the users – whether it is an employee inside a company or the final consumer. it is important to bear in mind that no platform is completely safe if it does not count with the attention and care of its user.

Inside companies, to count on a good IT department is another essential point for having success in the real IoT experience. Well prepared institutions to deal with this new technology tend, in the future, to become the main reference in the market to the general public, leading them to the much-desired customer engagement to brands and products.

A further important point to have in mind is that the internet security is a constant concern and even though every technology faces its own limits, the IoT is already established as a flagship of a new era to the virtual universe.

The emergence of new platforms, such as those developed by Konker, makes possible a scenario that allows a more strict, automated and, consequently, flawless control during its process.

The benefits that the IoT brings to our lives are becoming common stories in the news. However, what few people imagine is that behind what is seen as a final product by the general public, there is a lot of cutting-edge technology being developed. One of the most important platforms related to controlling the process of that technology is the dashboard, the tool of which we’ll speak today.

Basically, the dashboard is a user-friendly interface, which works as a control panel, whereby is possible to configure changes and to have a global view of the behavior and performance of a software and its data in real time.

In more specific cases, this platform is capable of project conducts and reactions of its operational infrastructure, having as main features the support to business demands and the benefit of providing information for its user.

Most precisely when connected to the IoT solutions, it is vital that the dashboard gathers in the same package, besides an attractive design and an architecture of easy and accessible comprehension, an intuitive connection between devices. This is why is not recommended to trust in a fixed pattern that fits in every case.

For example, each dashboard designed by Konker is aimed to cover with success every need and preference of each client.

The dashboard’s backbone
It is important to understand that a dashboard is a durable good, which can remain functional and modern for a long time. This creates the need for a friendly platform to its user, so that they are always pleased with it. However, it is highly recommended to have an extreme care: the work done in the design of a dashboard cannot impact its feedback power.

In this context, the technological challenge with the IoT is the development of diagrams, charts, graphs, maps and data which provides real-time results for a precise analysis of the status of services and process, since that continuous monitoring can involve several apps and softwares simultaneously.

We are daily following in magazines, newspapers, and on the internet the fast evolution of the IoT (Internet of Things). However, even with the velocity of technological innovation, we cannot leave aside the care for the environment. Thinking about it, several companies have started to create and invest in connected solutions that contribute with environmental preservation. In this text, you will get to know some of these devices, which are being developed in several countries in order to prevent and generate less impact on the environment, check out:

  1. Floating Sensor Network (University of Berkeley – California) – a system that can be implemented and integrated into rivers and water monitoring infrastructure, via cell phones, GPS, temperature, and salinity sensors. It can also be quickly activated in case of unforeseen events, such as floods, contamination, and other conditions in the watercourses.
  1. Invisible Tracck – is a wireless device that is being used in pilot programs to help to combat illegal deforestation at Amazon (Brazil). The devices operate with battery and stay in certain trees. By the time they are cut down and are in movement, the sensors send alerts with location coordinates to the Instituto Brasileiro do Meio Ambiente (Brazilian Institute of Environment) so that they can take the necessary measures.
  1. Assessment of Landslides using Acoustic Real-time Monitoring Systems (ALARMS) – micro acoustic and integrated sensors with wireless network capacity to provide warnings of instability on ground. The sensors are permanently installed and send a text message in real time when the acoustic activity of the soil reaches a predefined limit. The alarms use a steel pipe leading the signals out of the ground. This tube is placed in a hole in the ground, which is filled with sand or gravel. Sand and gravel produce more energy when the soil changes its surroundings and this facilitates signal detection. Therefore, as soon as a movement of land that can be incriminating is perceived, an alert is sent to the communities so that they can prevent themselves, and leave their houses before a worse event to occur.
  1. Sintelur – is a small sensor that can determine the amount of trash in a container. The captured data is sent to a monitoring center that, based on the amount of garbage and the location by GPS, maps strategies to collect trash around the city. The system also determinates optimal routes for garbage collection, reducing fuel costs and general expenses, in addition to decreasing greenhouse gas emissions from the garbage trucks.
