The new edge of the organizational network is now often found in mobile devices – handsets, tablets, and notebook PCs – that are increasingly owned by end-users themselves. This BYOD paradigm has many quantifiable benefits, to be sure, but also introduces new challenges in securing the network and sensitive data, as well as in maintaining the integrity of the network and other IT elements and supporting what could be a (very) large and complex array of devices. This presentation will break down those challenges and help you develop an overarching security strategy that cuts across the myriad threats and multiplicity of platforms now facing your organization.
