Report: Connected Home Consumers Want Data Security Support

Several recent studies have shown that security and privacy are top of mind for consumers considering Internet of Things devices for their homes.

Parks Associates back in October noted around 40 percent of U.S. broadband households reported a recent privacy or security problem with one of their connected devices. And in February the firm followed up with a report that revealed 45 percent of broadband households are concerned about privacy and security risks to their smart home devices.

Now, Parks Associates says its data indicated nearly 60 percent of broadband households want security support services to go with their smart home devices. The firm found services that resolve technical issues or provide tools for users to address device issues also gained the interest of 45 percent of potential buyers.
