FINAL WORD
By adding motion-sensing and processing capabilities to the camera , the device can determine which parts of the captured footage are valuable and send just those to the data center or cloud infrastructure for further analysis .
Another benefit of Edge Computing is reduced latency . Rather than sending requests from the Edge and then waiting for a reply , the devices can make decisions themselves . enterprise IT infrastructures around the world . Securing the Edge
As organizations push more computing capacity out of the data center to the Edge of the corporate network , the challenge of maintaining adequate security grows . They must rethink the techniques and tools that have worked well in a centralized environment and often replace those that can ’ t address Edge Computing ’ s security needs .

This shift is particularly relevant when it comes to devices such as self-driving cars . The latency involved in waiting for a decision or direction from a data center could lead to an accident . Instead , the car has the computing resources in place , which allows for autonomous operation .
The myriad applications of Edge Computing will continue to cause its usage to increase . Indeed , according to research firm Gartner , by 2029 , there will be more than 15 billion IoT devices connected to
One of the critical factors that organizations must recognize is that every deployed Edge device becomes
One of the critical factors that organizations must recognize is that every deployed Edge device becomes an additional potential attack vector .
