Often, IoT devices seem to have crept into the environment over the years - such as office cafeteria room appliances, coffee makers, toasters - let alone the standard business technology, including conferencing systems, TVs, printers and security cameras. Most, if not all, of these IoT-based technologies should be segmenting into VLANs so they cannot gain access to the business network.20 October 2021
