Consumer Data Protection Fears Open Doors for Managed Security

Three-quarters (76%) of US broadband households are “very” concerned about their data security and personal privacy when using connected devices. This presents an untapped opportunity for internet service providers to find additional revenue via managed security offerings.

Third-quarter consumer research from Parks Associates finds that identity and data theft are among the highest-ranked security concerns when using connected devices.

"Broadband households in the US now own an average of more than seven Internet-connected computing and entertainment devices, and nearly one-fifth own a smart home device," said Patrice Samuels, research analyst at Parks Associates."
