Preparing your company for “Bring Your Own Device”
The Bring Your Own Device “BYOD” phenomenon is making headway. A lot of enterprises are trying to achieve productivity gains through embracing BYOD but worry about the management of BYOD program. Most network infrastructures do not have measure in place for BYOD, e.g. how the infrastructure allows access of particular user to uncontrolled data and bans access to sensitive data according to his/her identity, business unit, the access device, the aging of the anti-virus signatures on the device, the time of day, the network element through which he/she accesses the data etc.
The Cisco solution for BYOD enables enterprises to make proactive governance decisions. Based upon Cisco Identity Services Engine, the solution enhances infrastructure security and simplifies enterprise service operations by enabling unified access control and policy enforcement.
To learn more about BYOD, please join our seminar on 26-Jun-2012 at Cisco HK. We will have the setup ready for you to test out the solution using Your Own Device during the demonstration session.
