Re: too much security
@Adrian 4 - "Security belongs at the borders."
No, you should have defence in depth. A mischievous employee could mess around. Malware can turn a device on your network into an entry point for launching further attacks on vulnerable devices like Pepper. Only securing your borders is eggshell security: strong, until it cracks.
Pepper is being deployed as a receptionist, and in banks, medical centres and restaurants, which are all public or semi-public areas, where visitors might be connecting to the organisation's network.
We need the manufacturers to give users control of the device security, so let's see more of these security fail articles.
