Identifying who and what is on a company’s network is a never-ending challenge. In addition to preventing malicious users from gaining access, there is also a need to protect against unauthorized devices and applications.
Many businesses today embrace the idea of anywhere, anytime connectivity, but often ignore the need for secure network access control. Identifying what’s on the network is an ongoing challenge. Mobile phones and tablets are subject to theft, malware and data leakage. IoT devices are often managed by outside administrators and can be used to generate threats from remote locations. The large number of IoT devices and the varied types that can be connected to wired and wireless networks is driving the need for IT to identify devices, enforce granular policies and protect resources from internal and external threats.
