The Crucial Role of Human Expertise in MDR

It’s safe to assume that attackers will get into your network, so it’s important to detect them as quickly as possible and mitigate the impact they have on business operations.

Relying solely on an internal team of security analysts can hamstring much of these efforts as overworked team members become inundated by dozens of alerts from multiple security monitoring tools.

Working with an MDR service provider gives you the peace of mind that you have an army of cybersecurity experts working 24×7, 365 days a year with the right expertise and access to the best cybersecurity tools available to protect your organization from any threat that dares to infiltrate your network. 

What to Expect When Upgrading to Wi-Fi 7 From Earlier Generations of Wireless

Wi-Fi 7 builds upon its predecessor, Wi-Fi 6, and is designed to meet the increasing demands of modern connectivity and mobility. Wi-Fi 7 aims to provide a more reliable and efficient wireless experience, building on the era of 6 GHz connectivity that began with Wi-Fi 6E.

With blazing-fast data rates and advanced multi-user capabilities, Wi-Fi 7 is poised to meet the demands of today’s bandwidth-hungry applications and tomorrow’s emerging technologies.


Decoding the Differences Between Cloud and Edge Computing

Edge computing is a distributed computing model that positions processing and storage closer to where the action is – from endpoint devices and smartphones to sensors and the vast array of Internet of Things (IoT) devices that have become ubiquitous in the modern enterprise.

It leverages an intelligent software layer that enables local data processing to provide immediate, actionable insights where needed most, minimizing the delays that can occur when data has to travel back and forth between distant cloud servers.
