Why Edge Matters
According to recent research by McKinsey, the future of work is mobile. “Smartphones paved the way for the connected workforce, but today’s workers need far more than email and a few enterprise applications at their fingertips. They need the ability to work anywhere, anytime...” That future is upon us now, and it poses a challenge for information security leadership as well as storage and data management leaders. As early as 2016, NIST cataloged the security threats posed by mobile devices. NIST noted that mobile-device use expands the threat landscape, and our customers told us it can complicate file sharing and collaboration.
Edge not only reduces security risks associated with mobile collaboration, it brings the benefit of CloudFS scalability to those who need to securely access and load very large files, such as construction blueprints, video files needed for legal matters, healthcare radiology images, and lengthy mortgage documents and other contracts.
