    For software related you can consider any anti virus with internet security facility. Is it your home purpose/ office related. Environment/ OS also a matter regarding this Q.

    A lot more info is needed to give a valid answer. What OS are you using? What is the hardware involved? What is the main goal of the project? What is your current skill level?

    The question is very vague and makes little sense. Please be much more specific.

    What objects/devices exactly do you need to interface with? What platforms will you be connecting with? What functions go you need to perform? What risks are you avoiding?

    Maybe most importantly. is this for commercial, in-house or home environment?

    It's no different than any other type of system: What are your threats and vulnerabilities? Once you understand those then you can go about determining your risks and the appropriate security controls to keep things in check.

    What are the things you have connected Internet with? It's  like quite impossible to answer such things whiteout having exact info of the things.

    So many things can connect to the internet today. Some do not need security like a coffeemaker or refrigerator. Protecting our device is the price we have to pay for having the latest technology. I do not even own a smart phone, or smart television. No internet connected house. Who cares if I can turn on my lights or heat from work. Maybe I'm over cautious but I do not have these worries.

    Internet of things is all about connected devices. If you specify in which environment you plan to use IoT then it will be helpful to answer your question in the right way. Anyway, check the following article of techtarget on this subject. It will help you to get the better idea about IoT security.

    Some do not need security like a coffeemaker or refrigerator.

    Once an internet connection is practical, security for both of those becomes an immediate concern, as would almost any other ubiquitous devices.

    It would be important not only for individual owners, but also for entire regions of a country once some botnet C&C server chooses to turn them all on at the same time on a hot summer day. Numerous trouble scenarios can be imagined.

    I agree Raven, if it is connected then it should be addressed. My thought was more along the thought of "Why do I need to connect this device to the internet?" It may be a convenience for some but on the other side it's just another possible door we are leaving open to unwanted guests. I would like to see manufacturers sales for normal product and internet connected devices. I'd like to know what is now more mainstream.
