What It Is

What is edge security?

Edge security is threat prevention, detection, and mitigation for your entire network, no matter how your employees connect to it, with firewalls, antivirus software, and internal systems protection. It integrates unified threat management (UTM) and a web application firewall (WAF) to protect sensitive apps and data and control internet traffic.

DOT Security combines hardware and software to make sure that your employees have the freedom to work in the office, at home, or anywhere in the world, with whichever devices they choose, without potentially compromising critical business assets or creating network vulnerabilities.

Network edge security differs from endpoint protection because, where endpoint protection covers individual devices to secure your environment, edge security protects the network itself, no matter what devices are connecting to it.

Uncertainty

Without edge security, every staff member checking their email through an unsecure wi-fi connection in line at a coffee shop creates network vulnerabilities for attackers.

Outdated

Network edge security wasn’t considered when developers were creating the first antivirus programs, but it’s now a crucial element of cybersecurity.

Imprecision

Are you sure that you understand and have both edge security and endpoint protection? Without expert help, it’s hard to know that you have these critical, distinct elements.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

What does edge security mean?

Edge security means cybersecurity protection for the networks in your organization that are closest to the internet, no matter what endpoints are connecting to it or how far away they are physically or in organizational proximity to the center of your company.

What are the parts of edge security?

The parts of edge security at DOT Security are unified threat management (UTM) devices and web application firewalls (WAF). They work together to ensure that you have protective hardware on routers and software for network edge security.

How do I secure my edge devices?

You can secure your edge devices with the combination of a global edge security plan and endpoint protection to ensure that the devices themselves are as protected as the internal networks they’re connecting to.

What is edge computing?

Edge computing is the process of storing data at a location that is physically closer to the client so it can be accessed instantaneously, as opposed to in a single, centralized data center where there may be a lag in accessing the information. While the concept of keeping data close to the edge of your network sounds similar to protecting the edge of your network, it is separate from cybersecurity network edge security.

What are IoT edge devices?

IoT edge devices are the hardware that connects to your network and accesses the internet. IoT is short for “Internet of Things” and edge devices are endpoints that allow you to actually get into your network. Some examples of IoT edge devices are laptops mobile phones, and smart sensors, all of which need to be fortified against network vulnerabilities.
