Edge security refers to the set of measures and practices used to protect devices, applications, and data at the edge of a network or system.
Edge security is a subset of cybersecurity that focuses on protecting the devices, applications, and data that are located at the edge of a network or system. The "edge" refers to the boundary between a network or system and the outside world, where data enters or exits the network. Edge security is particularly relevant for IoT, as the number of connected IoT devices and the amount of data being generated at the edge of networks continues to grow.Edge security measures may include access controls, firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems, antivirus and anti-malware software, and other security technologies designed to protect against cyber attacks and data breaches. In addition, edge security may involve using encryption, data masking, and other techniques to protect sensitive information and maintain data privacy.
