The Edge is a force multiplier for cloud, with the potential to exponentially increase the power of your clouds to transform your business. It’s the defensive shield that can surround and protect everything — sites, users, devices, data centers, clouds. It is the technology that eliminates friction and enables immersion.

Edge has all the right people to talk to in the same place and at the same time.” Mark Silis, Associate Vice President Information Systems & Technology, MIT
