Bradford Networks - BYOD

Bradford Networks offers the best solution to enable secure network access for corporate issued and personal mobile devices. The company's flexible Network Sentry platform is the first network security offering that can automatically identify and profile all devices and all users on a network, providing complete visibility and control. Unlike vendor-specific network security products, Network Sentry provides a view across all brands of network equipment and connecting devices eliminating the network blind spots that can introduce risk.

Bradford Networks - Network Sentry/RTR

Network Sentry/RTR minimizes a threat's impact and the response time for remediation. Network Sentry/RTR leverages its unique Live Inventory of Network Connections (LINC) to automatically correlate high fidelity security alerts from the leading firewall and Advanced Threat Detection solutions, including FireEye, Fortinet, and Palo Alto Networks, with detailed contextual information on compromised endpoints, users and applications. Once identified, Network Sentry/RTR triggers an automated response, based on the severity and business criticality of the incident, to contain compromised devices in real time. Network Sentry/RTR also provides detailed historical information on all network connections, giving security experts unprecedented forensics to help fully understand and investigate the threat's methodology, lifecycle and scope.

Throughout the ballpark there are thousands of different IP devices that are used to run the facility and venue events - including ATM machines, televisions and menu boards, LED display boards, point of sale terminals, sound systems, as well as PCs and laptops used by Marlins staff. For each game there can also be anywhere from 20 to 80 radio and television station personnel who need network access in order to broadcast the games. In addition to the sheer volume and variety, equipment is constantly being added and moved around the ballpark.
