Today, organizations have all kinds of devices on their networks. To manage the proliferation of personal devices, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies have moved to the forefront for IT professionals. Users want seamless access to corporate resources no matter which device they use or where that device is connecting from.
In addition, numerous types of devices don’t have users connected to them for example, printers. With so many network-connected devices in the enterprise, IT organizations must redefine their roles – and overall network security As the lines between personal and professional lives continue to blur, security is no longer a question just of how to keep people out; it is also a question of how to let them in. Moreover, new business requirements, such as the need to use collaborative applications, are driving the demand for greater flexibility and more choice, even as users demand the same levels of network performance and security. IT professionals must balance security and enablement so that users can collaborate with confidence.
