Edge Computing is a distributed computing architectural concept in which data is processed and stored at the network ’ s edge , away from a central location or data centre .
aim to boost productivity , data insights , and application speeds , this should matter to partners because it will open up a wide array of opportunities for them to offer integration services , analytics and security .
Edge Computing is a distributed computing architectural concept in which data is processed and stored at the network ’ s edge , away from a central location or data centre , and close to where people and devices generate or use information . As a result , large volumes of data created by these connected devices may be processed more quickly at the network ’ s edge , rather as at a remote data centre , thanks to Edge Computing . Edge Computing is also expected to play a critical role in realising 5G ’ s full potential . The network ’ s ability to sustain increasing data loads and unpredictable traffic patterns will be put to the test as 5G and IoT become more prevalent .
With attackers having expanded the scale and scope of their attacks as businesses have been driven to extend services and rely more heavily on the Edge , it ’ s no surprise , then , that security is a worry for enterprise IT and security teams who rely on the Edge . Edge devices were not designed with security in mind , according to 55 % of 268 IT professionals polled , and 69 % indicated Edge Computing has had or will have an influence on network security .
The larger attack surface and increased vulnerability to attacks such as DDoS campaigns , data theft , and intrusions into the enterprise network are the most pressing concerns . When asked which technology investment is most important to meet the changes brought on by the pandemic , over half of CIOs chose security and privacy ( 47 %) followed by customer experience and engagement ( 44 %).
