Protecting the edge of IoT as adoption rates for the technology grow
July 18, 2019 / Nick Ismail
As IoT adoption rates grow into a broader array of environments, the need to protect the edge of IoT grows in importance for organisations wanting to take advantage of the technology. Protecting the edge of IoT is increasingly important as IoT adoption grows. During this evolution, the emerging trend is to put more intelligence on the edge through smarter, more capable devices, which extend and expand the traditional enterprise IT infrastructure beyond a data centre or cloud environment. The addition of elements like trucks, containers, kiosks, warehouses and more creates an ecosystem of edge devices that not only collect and disseminate data, but also now perform highly complex tasks like AI at the outer reaches of the network.
