Asavie, a leader in secure Enterprise Mobility and Internet of Things (IoT) Connectivity, announced today that Asavie IoT Connect is now available on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace. The on-demand secure, network connectivity service enables developers to deploy IoT projects in minutes. By combining the flexibility and reach of AWS with Asavie IoT Connect’s seamless edge-to-Cloud secure cellular network management, businesses can quickly deploy and scale their IoT projects in a trusted end-to-end environment.
Asavie IoT Connect is an on-demand, secure connectivity service designed to connect IoT edge devices to the AWS cloud. Developers can provision their IoT devices in minutes with a seamless and secure private cellular connectivity to transmit data to the Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC). Asavie IoT Connect enables a completely private network, extending from edge IoT devices to AWS, that shields devices from public Internet-borne cyber threats such as malware and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.
The availability of such an on-demand seamless secure connection from the edge device to the cloud facilitates enterprise adoption of IoT by removing some of the complexity and skills required to manage the lifecycle of an IoT deployment. As observed by Emil Berthelsen, Snr. Director & Analyst with Gartner, “Moving deeper into IoT solutions and architectures, however, will require new skills around connectivity, integration, cloud and possibly analytics. On the one hand, connecting and integrating IoT endpoints, platforms and enterprise systems will be critical to ensure the secure flow of data from the edge to the platform. At another level, providing suitable processing and storage capabilities, and enabling the use of future cloud-based services, will require skills from the cloud service area.”[i]
