PITTSBURGH — Feb. 23, 2021 —Black Box, a global solutions integrator, today introduced its new Edge Networking services offering. With a focus on education, healthcare, banking and finance, and manufacturing/industrial facilities, the Black Box Edge Networking solution drives a “reimagined workplace” — one in which employees are empowered to work and collaborate securely and seamlessly, anywhere and on any device, and with no disruption.
“Over the past year, CIOs and CTOs have had to oversee a fundamental shift in work patterns and processes. With a large percentage of employees now working from home and other remote locations, the numbers of devices and physical sites have grown exponentially — together with the volume of network traffic and companies’ exposure to cyberattacks,” said Kevin Swank, director of product management, Black Box Global Solutions Integration. “At the outset of the pandemic, CIOs and CTOs cleared their first big hurdle by ensuring business continuity. Now they’re turning their attention to the next step in the evolution: providing the enterprise-level security that will enable people to work from anywhere, on any device and at any time, while easing the burden on IT staff.”
Swank added, “In 2021, companies are looking ahead and trying to redefine what business resiliency and digital transformation will mean in a post-pandemic age. And that’s why Black Box has introduced Edge Networking. With this new offering, we are helping our customers conceive, design and implement the workplace of the future, powered by resilient networks that maximize employee productivity.”
The new Black Box Edge Networking service offering reimagines a workplace in which workers are empowered to be productive from anywhere, and each remote worker’s experience is optimized for performance, cost and security. IT departments can extend enterprise-class operations to the home office, with operational consistency across environments and a distributed work model that is both secure and seamless. Bringing together a dedicated team of Black Box solutions architects and global strategic partners, the Edge Networking program is centered on three core challenges:
