Secure BYOD

There are many tradeoffs when adopting a BYOD strategy. However, the benefits of productivity, usability, and cost reduction have to be factored against the challenges of risk, manageability, and overall security.


According to a recent SAN Mobility/BYOD Security Survey, over 60% of organizations are embracing some form of BYOD but only 9% of organizations are confident they know the devices on their network. There is therefore is a gap than needs to be addressed to enable a secure BYOD strategy.

Gartner and other analyst firms have also noted that, although the BYOD challenges and security policies are new to enterprises, educational institutions have been successfully addressing these challenges for years. Because Bradford Networks’ early customers were education focused, the company has a tremendous wealth of experience navigating the technical and political issues related to BYOD. This depth of knowledge is leveraged by our customers to provide visibility into their networks, streamline the onboarding process, prescribe effective and secure access policies, and automate the network access controls – keeping employees happy and productive while ensuring a secure BYOD strategy.

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.

Bradford Networks Pitches a Perfect Game for the Miami Marlins

Marlins Park is the spectacular new home of the Miami Marlins baseball team.

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.
