Big name companies are investing in edge computing developments. Bruce Davie, VMware’s VP and CTO, Asia Pacific and Japan, ranked Edge Computing along with the rise of mobile devices, cloud and AI in his list of “four super powers of technology”. According to Fujitsu CTO, Joseph Reger, “It is very obvious that you need to bring intelligence closer to [IoT] devices, and for that you must have a kind of distributed intelligence and that is going to reload the opportunities for digital transformation.” With reference to Gartner saying that by 2022, some 75% the of enterprise-generated data would be created and processed outside the traditional, centralised data centre or cloud, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) committed some US$4 billion investment in intelligent edge technologies and services by 2021.
The global 5G-enabled edge computing market is growing rapidly, fueled by major technology changes that are disrupting the traditional networking industry. By 2025, this market is expected to exceed $50 billion. 5G has the potential to deliver a new generation of services, thanks to higher data rates and ultra-low latency. To take advantage of this potential, communications service providers are looking to move data processing and compute power closer to the end user — closer to the edge. While the digital boom provides many opportunities for IT leaders, it comes with challenges: a growing number of smart devices, the need for faster processing and increased pressure on enterprise networks. To harness all this potential power, organizations need to modernize their networks to effectively consume these new services at the edge. Some key trends are empowering this shift toward the 5G-enabled edge.
What Is IT Infrastructure Security?
If you are reading this blog, we would like to assume that you are either an aspiring cybersecurity professional or a business owner looking for ways to improve their network security. A business IT infrastructure includes networks, software, hardware, equipment, and other facilities that make up an IT network. These networks are applied to establish, monitor, test, manage, deliver, and support IT services.
So, IT infrastructure security describes the process of safeguarding the core networking infrastructure, and it is typically applied to enterprise IT environments. You can improve IT infrastructure security by installing protective solutions to block unauthorized access, theft, deletion, and data modification.
As offices worldwide sit abandoned, many of the millions of employees ordered to stay home are actually keeping hard at work, taking advantage of residential broadband connections, VPNs, email, video conferencing, and instant messaging applications to do their jobs. Thank the corporate world’s willingness to let employees occasionally work from home for the necessary IT infrastructure. However, as much as we’d like this alone to solve the business continuity challenges, enabling a handful of employees to work from home once a week is trivial compared to ensuring all of a company’s employees can do so for months on end.
