As a result, more than two thirds of IoT and mobile development pros are optimizing apps for security.

A new report from Evans Data finds that Internet of Things (IoT) and mobile development pros are becoming more concerned about security. More than 70% of IoT developers surveyed said they had experienced a security breach in the last year, and more than two thirds of respondents said they were optimizing their IoT and mobile apps for security.

"While it's clear that IoT has a very compelling need for security optimizations," said Janel Garvin, CEO of Evans Data, "there are also new advances that help developers secure their connected device projects. For example, we found that biometric authentication has come a long way recently with now over a quarter of IoT developers implementing some biometric authentication and another 40% working on projects that are planned to have that capability."
