Microsoft launched a bunch of new services and capabilities to secure Azure-connected IoT devices and workloads. The new IoT security tool is called Azure Security Center for IoT, and it essentially connects Azure cloud security, visibility, and analysis tools with the company's Azure IoT Hub.
Azure Security Center for IoT uses Microsoft's threat intelligence, Azure Security Center, which Microsoft says collects data from more than 6 trillion signals daily. It also hooks into Microsoft's new cloud-native security information and event management (SIEM) tool, Azure Sentinel. And it adds new capabilities to Sentinel that allow customers to combine their IoT security data with security data from across the enterprise, and then use analysis or machine learning to identify and mitigate threats.
