|Government Cybersecurity Challenges at the Edge|
|Published: December 28, 2020||Content info: 11 Pages||
This IDC Perspective examines how government agencies approach security as part of their ongoing edge computing efforts.When computing moves to the edge, traditional security concerns still apply, but new concerns emerge related to sprawling attack surfaces and the physical security of multiple devices. Protecting both edge data and systems is becoming more complicated, even though many security tools are similar. This means edge security is "the same, only different," in that it requires a more detailed approach to security, starting with physical security and improved system access control."Edge computing has different security needs, but government edge systems still must be maintained and protected in a unified way," said Shawn P. McCarthy, research director, Government IT Infrastructure at IDC. "This includes moving toward a zero-trust connection capability while still supporting unified threat management platforms and enterprisewide SD-WAN technologies."
