As enterprises accelerate adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT), there’s a call for simplified tools that help manage and secure their IoT devices across the network. Today, we’re introducing new features and functionality to the Azure IoT Suite that give customers more ways to extend, manage and monitor their IoT solutions.
Enhancements to the Azure IoT Gateway SDK and Azure IoT Hub device management in general availability
- With general availability of the Azure IoT Gateway SDK, we’re giving customers even more flexibility in how they design and deploy IoT solutions, from the datacenter to the very edge of the network. The Azure IoT Gateway SDK allows data to be processed close to the devices that create it, only sending truly necessary pieces to the cloud for further processing.
- Enhancements to Azure IoT Hub device management capabilities in general availability enable IoT developers, administrators and operators to organize, monitor, query, configure and update software and firmware configurations across billions of geographically dispersed and cross-platform devices.
Introducing the Azure IoT Hub IP filter
- As IoT devices proliferate, security and privacy are top concerns. The Azure IoT Hub IP filter, introduced today, enables customers to configure IP filtering rules for their IoT Hub. You can instruct IoT Hub to only accept connections from certain IP addresses, reject certain IP addresses or a combination of both.
These new Azure IoT features help enterprises utilize their IoT solutions more effectively and securely, from the cloud to the network’s edge.
