The holiday season can create more headaches than it relieves for IT staffs across the country—since returning from the break, they’ve been met with an influx of additional devices on their networks from Santa Clause—from iPads to the latest smartphones.
It would be impossible to ignore the mass effect Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is having on the consumerization of IT. Many firms have already implemented BYOD security polices in the hopes of better managing personal devices and ensuring their network security isn’t put at risk. But with the recent influx of devices, now is the time for organizations to recognize the security threats and resource constraints associated with these devices when they are brought into the enterprise.
On January 31, I’ll be partnering with Zeus Kerravala, founder and principal analyst of ZK Research, to host a webinar outlining best practices for BYOD. We’ll be addressing the evolution of Enterprise Wireless LANs and the impact of BYOD and the roles of Mobile Device Management (MDM) and Network Access Management (NAM) in managing BYOD. We’ll also specifically take a look at Apple Bonjour devices and evaluate how to effectively manage the challenges these devices pose in the Enterprise. Register today and be sure to tune in this Thursday at 11am: http://bit.ly/10PVwPz.
