4 New AWS IoT Services In 2023 With Huge Customer Potential
From new capabilities in AWS IoT Device Defender and IoT TwinMaker to new location services for devices, AWS’ IoT leader Yasser Alsaied tells CRN about new opportunities for partners in 2023.
IoT Device Defender Now Has AWS Security Hub
The cloud giant recently integrated AWS’ IoT Device Defender security management service with its AWS Security Hub.
Alsaied said the integration now allows customers to ingest alarms and their attributes from AWS IoT Device Defender features in one central location, without custom coding. Additionally, the new feature helps offload or reduce the complexity of managing disparate workflows from multiple security consoles when they review devices monitored by AWS IoT Device Defender.
“Device Defender means that every IoT device connected—and we have hundreds of millions of those—if there is a security issue on it, AWS customers now have a Security Hub. We added an IoT alarm to that hub,” he said.
“So you don’t have to deal with IoT alone and your cloud system alone,” said Alsaied. “If you have any security threat on any of your, let’s say, millions of IoT devices—you can see it right there immediately and you can deal with it.”
AWS’ IoT leader said partners can add “tremendous value for customers” in 2023 with IoT Device Defender around IoT security management for large fleets or devices.
