Edge Endpoint Solutions Overview

Edge technology is a solution set that offers endpoint data protection, security, easy access, and search capabilities on end-user data. Using Edge solutions, you can protect your data against data breaches and also increase the productivity through end-user self-service capabilities. End users have immediate access to their data, regardless of where it is created, and can securely share, search, and restore files from their desktop, laptop, or other mobile devices, without assistance. Edge solutions provide global access to distributed files and documents without using third-party file sharing and cloud backup services, which are outside the security and control of corporate IT solutions.
