By Joni Brennan and Oleg Logvinov

It is a counterintuitive challenge to begin with. The whole point of the Internet is to make informationmore accessible, but the prevailing question in cybersecurity, privacy and identity and access management (IAM) is how to build an effective framework of complementary technologies and policies for restricting who can access what information when and in what ways.

The view comes on the back of a recent survey, conducted by TechValidate, which showed only 12% of respondents are currently in the process of rolling out an IoT solution. Yet Red Hat argues this is the natural path for enterprises, generally watchful and glacial over new technology trends.

“Far from being a negative, this...
