“Resilient edge resources are the foundation for shifting to digital-first, connected operations,” said Jennifer Cooke, Research Director, Edge Strategies, IDC. “Organizations will become vulnerable if and when their technology fails.”

With the increased adoption of IoT devices, autonomous vehicles, as well as new work-from-anywhere (WFA) models, data center functions are moving to the edge to support these compute-intensive, zero-latency applications, and the demands of an increasingly remote workforce. By implementing a decentralized architecture, organizations like retailers, hospitals, hotels, manufacturers, and banks can improve localized computing power for end-users and the applications they need to drive business.

Sentry is RF Code's newest innovation engineered to help heads of IT gain real-time visibility and observability of its IT and IoT asset fleet housed in "lights out" locations. Sentry monitors and provides instant alerts and deep insights to anticipate and thwart environmental threats in unmanned and nonsecure IT spaces like data closets and server rooms.

It's common for critical IT assets to share space with other equipment, files, or materials. Multi-purpose spaces increase IT equipment exposure to human error and theft. Without real-time environmental and critical asset monitoring tools in place, these unmanned and unmonitored IT spaces can be costly. Unplanned downtime, theft, and breaches can hurt an organization’s bottom line costing thousands of dollars a minute. Sentry's motion, temperature and hotspot sensors alert you to unusual room activity.

Sentry is easy to install and can be deployed in 20 minutes—all without the need for an on-site IT team, providing real-time visibility and remote monitoring from anywhere. Sentry’s SaaS model makes it more affordable for organizations to monitor several IT locations at scale.
