EcoStruxure Micro Data Center 6U Wall Mount Addresses Edge Computing Challenges

To meet the needs of today’s always-on world, companies of all sizes are undergoing digital transformation. As a result, IT systems are being placed closer to where the data is created and processed- a disruptive trend called edge computing. Edge computingpresents new challenges with many distributed systems in locations unstaffed by ITwith new cyber and physical security demands and in environments not optimized for IT systems. Schneider Electric’s6U Wall Mount is designed for edge computing where space is at a premium and resiliency is a must. Itallows large, heavy edge servers, networking equipment, and the UPS to be safely mounted on a wall, so it consumes zero floor space and is 60 percent less intrusive than traditional wallmount enclosures.Shock packaging means partners and integrators can pre-install IT for quick and standardized rollouts, and its integrated dust filter and fan ventilation make it ideal for light industrial environments. The 6U Wall Mount empowers customers to support critical business operations in non-IT environments.

“With the EcoStruxure Micro Data Center 6U Wall Mount’s creative design and functionality, we are able to open up new possibilities to deploy resilient ITat the edge, making digital transformation a reality,” said Jim Simonelli, SVP Emerging Businesses, Secure Power Division, Schneider Electric.“No one else can provide the full, standardizedIT infrastructure solutions that Schneider can along with the partner ecosystem to ensure simplified deployment and compatibility. A fully integrated EcoStruxure Data Center Solution, including EcoStruxure IT and Asset Advisor 24/7 remote monitoring and services,ensures resiliency in the cloud and at the edge.”

Schneider Electric’s New Device Security Vulnerability Assessment Enhances Cybersecurity

As edge networks proliferate, IT professionals face new security challenges. An estimated 61 percent of small and medium businesses are hit by cyberattacks annually.*To defend against cyberattacks, Schneider Electric has announced the new Device Security Vulnerability Assessment, now available in EcoStruxure IT Expert™, Schneider’s cloud-basedmonitoring and management software for local edge, distributed IT, and data center. Today’s release includes assessment of all Schneider Electric connected devices with future updates to expand vendor-neutral capabilities.

The new assessment reduces the risk of a security breach and saves time by helping users determine threats and engage in preventive measures sooner, ultimately lowering the possibilities of major business disruption and data loss. Specifically, it helps customers identify and report vulnerabilities, prevent risks, comply with security policies and regulations, and understand the industry best-practices for security. EcoStruxure IT Expert users can find the Vulnerability Assessment on the ‘Assessments’ tab in the tool.
