Gartner: 'How to Overcome Four Major Challenges in Edge Computing'

Edge computing represents a combination of cloud connectivity and local computing; while the cloud is retained for carrying data, local computers take care of data processing reducing latency, decreasing network traffic, and improving performance. With new ways of computing comes new security concerns. Edge technology expands the potential attack surface by allowing sensitive data to be stored and processed across an extensive array of systems.

With edge computing and risk working in tandem, it’s important for organizations to be mindful of common challenges associated with edge computing. Only when becoming fully aware of the way edge computing can change an organization’s threat model, can security teams take the right precautions.

In this report by Gartner, get familiar with the challenges many enterprises face as they pursue edge computing and how they are addressed. More specifically, learn:

  • Four challenges associated with edge computing and recommendations for building a strategy that helps minimize those challenges
  • Technologies and hardware needed for a safe and sustainable edge strategy
  • Important considerations to make for edge computing protection
  • How to handle the large influx of data that will happen at the edge
