This IDC Perspective discusses how secure, scalable access anywhere and anytime is one of the goals and outcomes of the connected enterprise. As enterprises adopt the edge to enhance application performance and improve business agility, trusted connectivity requires that organizations take a multifaceted and expanded approach to security that extends across the cloud, network, and application levels.

"The edge brings new capabilities and performance benefits to the enterprise when secure connectivity is established," commented Paul Hughes, research director, Future of Connectedness at IDC." As organizations adopt and leverage more applications and compute benefits at the edge, building a secure and trusted edge strategy will require a singularly managed but multipronged strategy that maps locations, connectivity, suppliers, and architectures together."
