Topic: Improving Security and Scalability with Blockchain and Edge Computing
With the increasing use of the Internet of Things and the cloud in business operations, traditional computing architectures are moving away from centralized networks to focus on endpoint devices, thus reducing latency and response time. Security and business continuity are growing concerns with the rapid integration of these technologies, which necessitate the storage of a large volume of data in real time. Edge computing and blockchain are two emerging technologies that have powerful implications for improving security and reliability in these areas and have thus generated significant interest among the cybersecurity community.
Edge computing can—despite certain limitations—address the challenges of storing and leveraging large amounts of data, reducing latency in cloud computing, and enhancing data privacy and security. Likewise, blockchain is transforming how businesses operate in digital ecosystems and can itself enhance the security and privacy of edge computing through its unprecedented capabilities for data storage and assurance. This webinar highlights the significance of combining edge computing with blockchain to reach levels of security and scalability that traditional cloud computing models cannot achieve.
- The need for edge computing and edge intelligence
