IDC - Critical Need for Edge Data Protection
As companies branch out and become increasingly mobile, there's an increasing need to protect sensitive data on desktops, laptops and mobile phones. The huge - and still growing - amount of data and content created and existing on edge devices is testament to this need, because edge data is showing no signs of slowing.
Edge data carries the same implications as "normal" corporate data that falls under data protection and disaster recovery plans - except that the damage can be even greater, because a breach of security of edge data might not be noticed as quickly as say, a data center break-in.
Check out this IDC white paper to learn about the risks associated with and importance of protecting edge data. Read on to learn the challenges and benefits of protecting such information in today's IT landscape and gain insight into potential solutions for protecting edge environments.
