The Edge is extending IT into challenging locations that can be just about anywhere, deploying to spaces that will not have multiple layers of security and access control. What are the options for securing these installations in spaces that lack typical yet essential facility infrastructure components? And while small in size, Edge installations should also provide maximum efficiencies to support corporate green Initiatives. Join us to learn about best practices and solutions available to ensure a safe, stable, efficient, and secure Edge installation, with a focus on security and safety.
