Cross-platform interoperability benefits from Microsoft's good relationship with its partners. In June, for example, Microsoft announced a partnership with Oracle.
Microsoft claims that the Internet of Things Security Center can collect more than 6 trillion signals a day and rank identified risks by priority. In addition, the tool can identify potential errors and even unsafe configuration information.
Microsoft boasts Azure Security Center for IoT as the industry's first end-to-end solution, enabling organizations to prevent, detect and help repair potential attacks on all the different components of Internet of Things deployment.
Security coverage covers workloads ranging from small sensors to edge computing devices and gateways, Azure IoT Hub, and connecting enterprise IoT computing, storage, databases and artificial intelligence (AI)/machine learning (ML).
In fact, we are not surprised by Microsoft's efforts in the Internet of Things. Because the company already has a series of Internet of Things-based products:
For example, Azure Sphere Security Operating System, Azure IoT Edge Platform, and Azure IoT Central, which opened a public preview last September, are being used in the recently announced digital distribution center.
All these investments are more responsive to the expected growth of the Internet of Things market. IDC expects the IoT market to reach $1.1 trillion by 2023. Interested friends can go to the Azure IoT security portal for more information.
