  • AWS IoT Device Management lets users securely onboard, organize, monitor and remotely manage your IoT devices at scale throughout their lifecycle.

  • Amazon CloudWatch Dashboards allow users to create reusable graphs and get a unified operational view across cloud resources and applications. 

  • Amazon GuardDuty threat detection service enables continuous monitoring to detect security threats.

  • Amazon Polly, AWS Lambda, Amazon Simple Notification Service and Amazon API Gateway now offer FIPS 140-2 compliant end points. A full list of FIPS 140-2 compliant AWS services is available here.
