Are connected devices leaving you vulnerable to security breaches?

19 Oct 2017

Enterprise employees today are using an average of three devices per person with laptops, smartphones, tablets and Internet of Things (IoT) devices to increase productivity.

Existing security protocols usually lack policies around wireless networks and devices, conference calling services and printers.

With Gartner forecasting 50 billion connected devices by 2020, it’s important for devices to be secured, or they could represent entry points for security threats.

Network Access Control (NAC) solutions secure devices by providing enterprises with visibility, control, and attack response easily from anywhere, at any time.

ClearPass is a vendor and device-agnostic NAC available through NetWireless.

The agnostic nature of the service sets it apart from other NACs in the market, as it can be integrated with companies’ existing hardware, e.g. Hewlett Packard, Cisco, Meraki, Aruba and Ruckus.

NetWireless can provide your multi-site business with the right visibility, control and security response anywhere, anytime, on any device.  

ClearPass NAC has the added advantage of features like:

  • Providing simple, fast, and secure guest access to wired or wireless networks
  • Advanced security health checks on devices to ensure IT policy compliance
  • Integration with third-party security threat solutions like firewalls, MFA, and SIEM tools
