Vulnerabilities: UA HealthBox

Wearable technology such as the new UA HealthBox is the most comprehensive ecosystem of fitness products made to date. What could this mean for the well-being of your company network? The individual impact may be relatively small, but the combined effect of these increasingly common devices can create a much larger impact on the network. More employee-controlled devices connected to the network means more access points and bandwidth usage. While this issue may start small, its impact will only grow over time.

Tech's biggest event, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), garners more than 200,000 attendees and never has a lack of innovation or head-scratching technology. From an entire section devoted to virtual reality to a futuristic Batmobile model, attendees collectively navigate through 3,800 exhibitors and 2.5 million square feet of space to experience the most advanced technologies. Of course, 2016's show had no shortage of wearable tech, tablets and hybrid devices on display.

With all these new products being introduced to company networks, the opportunity for vulnerabilities and security and compliance complications continues to escalate for IT teams. In 2016, IT teams can expect to deal with the onslaught of wearable devices, ensuring continuous infrastructure and deploying new technologies. The products introduced at CES will only add to the complexity for IT teams' never-ending efforts to manage and keep up with the hot tech trends.

In this slideshow, Ipswitch highlights six of the technologies from CES that are most likely to disrupt your company network.
