AWS IoT Device Defender is a fully managed service that helps you keep your connected devices secure. Using AWS IoT Device Defender, you can continuously monitor security metrics from devices and AWS IoT Core for deviations in what you have defined as appropriate behavior for each device. You receive an alert whenever devices violate custom-defined behavior, so you can take action to remediate the issue.

Starting today, you can use statistical anomaly detection, and receive alerts when a device is not within the percentile-based threshold. For example, you can be alerted when your device is not within the 90th percentile of fleet behavior. You also have the ability to configure the number of consecutive violations per device that should trigger an alert.

In addition, AWS IoT Device Defender now provides an easy way for you to visualize security metrics in the AWS Management Console for all devices, even when they are not in violation of custom-defined behaviors. The increased visibility of your security metrics and associated statistical information, such as percentile levels, means you can more quickly investigate behavior violations and view historical device behavior and alerts.
