AWS IoT Device Management vs Crowsnest: What are the differences?
Developers describe AWS IoT Device Management as "Onboard, organize, monitor, and remotely manage connected devices at scale". AWS IoT Device Management makes it easy to securely onboard, organize, monitor, and remotely manage IoT devices at scale. IoT Device Management lets you register your devices individually or in bulk, and manage permissions so that devices remain secure.
