What is Edge?

Edge is simply a monthly IT related "newsletter" (if you really have to label it!), brought to you by Secure Services & companies. We hope to keep you informed about the latest trends, news and views from the IT world, which are posed to directly or indirectly impact on you or your company. We promise to be an easy, fun and quirky read, because IT is not a world full of boring technical people, who are too busy to stay updated because they are busy saving costs for companies and/or being super heroes against IT theft! *BREATHE*
