Using Edge Computing to Help IT Connect and Secure The Enterprise

Using Edge Computing to Help IT Connect and Secure The Enterprise

Edge computing is vital not just to the burgeoning world of real-time responsive IoT, but to enterprise network security, as these IoT systems multiply and spread.

Edge computing creates a distributed infrastructure with centralized management and lights-out — or remote — operations built on private cloud infrastructure. Edge computing infrastructure can provide storage and compute to enable application responses with ultra-low latency or data aggregation points, which can help optimize use of central storage.

Edge computing can provide more than just real-time responsiveness and economical storage for transient data, though. With edge computing security, IT can provide a place to help secure IoT and, therefore, secure the enterprise.
