Dynamically identify and profile the devices on your network, and assign security policies based on device type, location and access method. Delegate device management tasks to functional groups outside of IT. Prevent unauthorized devices from connecting to your network. Gain network-wide visibility with detailed logging and reporting on network connection activity.
Discover What’s On Your Network
Profiling the devices on your network allows you to dynamically identify them and classify them by type. With this information, you can provision security policies for each type of device as it connects to your network. Connect a printer and have it dynamically added to your “Printers” group and placed into your “Printers” VLAN. Add a security camera and have it added to your “Physical Security Devices” group and placed into your “Facilities” VLAN. Further, with the ability to assign administrative tasks to appropriate functional groups, device management need not rest solely in IT’s hands.
Prevent Unauthorized Devices
Locking down your network to allow only known, authorized devices to connect is a key step in securing your critical assets. But first you need to be able to identify all the authorized devices in order to recognize when something shows up that doesn’t belong. Sounds simple enough, but this can be a drain on IT resources – unless you have a security solution in place that can automate the whole process.
