The annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas is always a big showcase for the latest new technologies including security and the 2017 edition of the show, which ran from Jan. 5 to 8, was no exception.

A one major theme at CES in recent years has been connected consumer devices, commonly referred to now at the Internet of Things.
IoT devices have helped to introduced new security risks for consumers and technology devices have responded with new devices and software to help protect them from emerging security threats.

At CES 2017 both ends of the IoT spectrum were well represented with new devices for home security as well as new technologies to help protect connected devices.

Among the new IoT devices announced at CES 2017 is a security floodlight from Ring that provides an internet-connected camera as part of a motion sensing outdoor light fixture.

To help protect against insecure IoT devices, multiple vendors including Symantec, McAfee and Bitdefender announced new technologies to help secure consumer networks.
Improving the security of user access was also a key theme with new security authentication products announced by Kensington and Yubico.
