When it comes to the modern network, challenges arise — and at a scale never seen before. Gartner writes that, “Enterprise infrastructures are changing, with new opportunities — and new threats.”1
Between growing numbers of connected devices, distributed cloud resources, and edge location management, securing and optimizing the network edge is a complex—and urgent—concern.
As Gartner explains, “I&O leaders responsible for cloud and edge infrastructure must be innovative with network security, workload deployments and infrastructure extended to the edge.”1
We believe this report tells you how to:
- Understand the evolving nature of the modern network edge
- Address risks related to a growing number of connected devices
- Implement best practices for optimized cloud management and performance
- Develop an edge computing strategy that will support your network into the future
