Microsoft rolls out its cloud-based IoT service to the general public, while upping data protection with new categories including device management and security.
Microsoft has made Azure IoT Edge publicly available around the world with several updates intended to bolster security and device management, as well as help businesses act on the data the cloud-based service collects.
Azure IoT Edge was developed to help businesses manage and leverage data by running Azure services, artificial intelligence (AI), and custom logic on cross-platform Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Microsoft first announced it about a year ago, and it was made available for preview in November. Now it’s exiting preview mode with improvements to make it enterprise-ready, Microsoft reports.
