Edge computing is a network of microdata centers that processes and stores sensitive data closer to the data source or closer to the end user. This reduces network traffic by reducing communication bandwidth between the central data center / cloud and end-user devices. Edge computing can be used for data collection, mobile signature analysis, data caching, and more.
Increased penetration of the Internet of Things (IoT) and increased adoption of cloud services and solutions are key drivers of the global edge computing market. In addition, the increase in Smart City projects and the adoption of connectivity devices are other factors that are expected to drive growth in the global edge computing market during the forecast period. As the adoption of real-time analysis and analysis of large data increases, the demand for edge computing becomes even higher. This is another factor expected to drive the growth of the global edge computing market during the forecast period.
Concerns about high deployment costs and data security are a major factor impeding the growth of the global edge computing market. The lack of skilled workforce is another factor that will hinder the growth of the global edge computing market during the forecast period.
The global edge computing market is segmented by components, applications, end users and geographies. By region, the global edge computing market is divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and the Middle East and Africa.
Email fraud is nothing new, but online criminals have become ever more-effective at spoofing their identities to trick employees into sending them money. The Australian Centre for Cyber Security (ACSC) recorded losses of over $20M to business email compromise (BEC) attacks last year alone, up 230 percent over the previous year – and the full amount is certain to be much larger.

No matter how robust your security, or how diligent your employees, network credentials are a free pass for cybercriminals. This is mostly because employees are relied upon for their own password management. And with more than 4.8 billion sets of stolen credentials said to be available online, odds are that at least a few of your employees’ user IDs and passwords are just waiting to be used by unscrupulous outsiders. Are you ready to stop them?

Cyber resilience will be particularly important as Australian organisations face increased pressure to quickly detect, respond to, and manage the repercussions of breaches in the wake of 2018’s Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme.
