Data comes in from sensors into the Xi edge over encrypted channels. Interactions between the SaaS control plane and the edge are encrypted as well.
When you set up the Xi edge, you enable a serial number in the SaaS control plane and you do all the configurations there. Then when you plug in the edge, it calls home and pulls down the configurations. Your edge may be in a remote location where you don’t have IT resources, so this makes it easy for you to deploy securely.
The data is encrypted from the edge to any cloud.
