F-Secure is looking to go that extra mile in consumer security with the launch of an anti-hacker appliance for the Internet of Things.The device, dubbed SENSE, works as a secure gateway, policing traffic to devices that might be insecure and generating alerts. For example, it will warn consumers if their router is running with default settings, and therefore with a more easily hackable password.Credential-spewing iKettles, insecure hubs and potentially snoopy smart TVs are characteristic of the generally lamentable state of IoT security.

Dell is one of many technology companies banking on the Internet of things as a generator of zettabytes of data that will help it sell more stuff—in Dell’s case, servers and storage hardware for corporate data centers. Like many of its largest peers (Intel, GE), Dell sees projections around the Internet of things—50 billion connected devices by 2020, or the potential for trillions of dollars in economic value—and wants a piece of the pie.On Wednesday at Dell World, the company’s annual customer conference, CEO Michael Dell paid lip service to the opportunity without articulating a clear strategy. Dell will sell hardware tailored to the Internet of things, its chief executive said. Beyond that, who knows.
