As multicloud technologies become increasingly popular, IT vendors are creating simplified integration and operational solutions. But certain complexities are still restricting some organizations from fully enjoying these solutions.
Dell Technologies Inc. uses its edge solutions to help its customers combat multicloud complexities and grow in their respective markets, according to Sam Grocott, senior vice president of product marketing at Dell Technologies Inc.
“We do see that as the next frontier for our customers to really gain that competitive advantage that is created from their data and get closer to the point of creation where the data lives,” he said.
Grocott spoke with theCUBE industry analyst Dave Vellante at Dell Technologies Summit, during an exclusive broadcast on theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s livestreaming studio. They discussed new projects at Dell and what the company has planned for the future. (* Disclosure below.)
The core elements of cybersecurity
There are three core elements of cybersecurity and data security that create a positive impact on a business, according to Grocott. First is setting the foundation of trust and investing in a strong supply chain and partner to meet that requirement. Next, organizations must go with technology that is trustworthy — in other words, assembling the right pieces together so they coexist seamlessly. Lastly, it’s imperative to plan for recovery when challenges arise.
As computing at the edge becomes more prevalent — 81% of the U.S. Fortune 100 companies use Dell solutions at the edge, according to Grocott — organizations must ensure data security. Dell is further addressing this issue by introducing Project Frontier. The platform enables zero-trust security across all edge platforms. To make it more intuitive for users, this integration allows companies to more securely manage and automate edge infrastructure for deployments securely, efficiently and at a global level, Grocott added.
“Project Frontier, in its most simplest form, is a software platform that’s going to help customers and organizations radically simplify their edge deployments by automating their edge operations,” he said. “[Customers] really want simple, consistent infrastructure options that are built on an open ecosystem that allows them to accomplish their goals quickly and successfully.”
