Edge Computing: Confronting the Biggest Cyber Threats in 2023
2023 has presented companies of all sizes with a slew of concerning cybersecurity challenges, ranging from data breaches to a massive talent gap to DDoS attacks as acts of warfare. Yet simply understanding what those threats are isn’t sufficient to address them, as it can be hard to plan defenses against all of them individually. Companies need to figure out how to address many threats at once in order to be most effective. Making the shift to edge computing infrastructure can serve as precisely this kind of defensive juggernaut, allowing companies to protect against many major concerns in one fell swoop. While not a panacea for all concerns, making edge computing part of your tech stack can improve security and leave your organization much better prepared for what 2023 has in store.
