“Any colour you like, as long as it’s Azure”
Yesterday saw two unrelated announcements regarding Microsoft’s Azure platform and the Internet of Things (IoT). Tern’s Device Authority investee has unveiled that its KeyScaler product will be available through the Microsoft-curated Azure Marketplace – a major achievement and a positive endorsement of the software. On the bigger stage, Microsoft has acquired Israeli software group CyberX for a reported $165m, bolstering its presence in the IoT arena. Microsoft clearly continues to propel its Azure cloud platform, and this note looks briefly at both Device Authority’s new opportunity and the CyberX deal.
