About Alex I am your AWS cost saving guru, ready to slash your AWS costs!

As a CTO at various start-ups and scale-ups, I've seen too often how AWS costs can sneak up on you. It used to be something we'd only think about when there was a problem—either it wasn't working like we needed it to, or the expenses were through the roof. I took my know-how in AWS and made it my goal to change that. Now, I use a simple rule to make a big impact: focus on the few changes that make the biggest difference in cutting costs.

I look at your AWS bills with a fine-tooth comb and find where you can save money without losing performance. It's about being smart with your resources and making sure AWS works for you, not against you. By doing this, I help your teams do more with less, and make sure we keep your cloud spending in check.

AWS IoT Device Defender is a security tool for IoT devices. It audits IoT resources, identifies vulnerabilities using ML models, monitors device behavior, and alerts on security anomalies. Counteractive measures include updating device certificates or quarantining devices. It also automates security evaluations, sends alerts, analyzes past device behavior, and detects insecure network services.

AWS IoT Device Defender pricing

AWS IoT Device Defender pricing is usage-based with no minimum fees or mandatory usage. The Audit and Detect features are billed separately. Audit charges are based on the number of active device principals in a month, which considers certificates as active when they are created, updated, or used to connect to AWS IoT Core. Principals other than certificates are considered active when they are used to connect to AWS IoT Core. Pricing tiers exist for devices up to 100,000 and over 100,000.
