Network Rx: Health Care Security
“A secure network with no disruption to users and service is essential for the operations of any enterprise, but owing to its time-critical nature perhaps nowhere is it as vital than in the health care industry. Additionally, taking a device offline in a hospital setting can literally put a person’s life at risk, so this adds a level of complexity to securing the network…The center already used tools from Bradford, Cisco and ForeScout and found Bradford and Cisco not compatible with its new needs…ForeScout CounterACT’s agentless approach was key.”

How Nottingham Trent University has Bolstered its Wireless Defences
“With more than 25,000 students and 2,500 staff spread across three campuses, NTU’s wireless network accommodates about 6,000 active wireless endpoints — and 10,000 “seen” endpoints — figures that grow continually as students bring more of their own devices (BYOD), including laptops, smartphones, tablets and gaming devices, onto the network…After implementing CounterACT, calls to the IT helpdesk were reduced, which has contributed to cost-savings for NTU. “

Next-Generation NAC: Advancing Control Intelligence and Security Management
Today’s Network Access Control (NAC) technology has evolved well beyond that of allowing or denying network admission. The latest generation of NAC solutions addresses numerous security and compliance applications, but more so, help organizations enhance operational awareness, efficiency and use of their existing network and security infrastructure.
Join this expert webinar to discover the key issues driving NAC’s maturation, what is required to enable security automation, and where control interoperability can enable NOC and SOC resource optimization.


Take Back Network Control: Taming the Rogue Device Threat
With workforce mobility, bring your own device (BYOD) into the workplace, and guest access into your network, enterprises are realizing how important it is to track and monitor who and what is accessing the network. We’ve recently seen examples of how rogue devices have caused significant damage through gaining access to
corporate infrastructure through network vulnerabilities. And, it’s alarming how easy it is for this to happen. A rogue or unknown device connects onto what you thought was a protected network, gains access and proceeds to cause often irrevocable damage which can result in millions of dollars to your business. Can you afford for this to happen?


  • How do you know what devices are accessing your network?
  • How do you detect a rogue device?
  • What can you do to prevent a threat in your network and minimize the risk?

Architecting a Flexible Strategy for Securing Enterprise and Personal Mobile Devices

Phil Hochmuth, security program analyst at IDC
Scott Gordon, chief marketing officer at ForeScout
This webinar examines BYOD trends and risks, the mobile security landscape, policy development and control options. The session will also present a tiered service approach to enterprise mobile security where complementary controls can offer necessary network and device level defenses to enable IT organizations to realize mobility advantages and reduce security and compliance exposures.
Topics Include:

  • Real-world issues, considerations and operational impact
  • Policy development processes to tolerate, support or embrace BYOD
  • Why combine NAC, MDM and other technical controls
  • How to devise tiered security service strategy


Getting Through the Compliance Maze with NAC (60 minutes)
- Diana Kelly – IANS Faulty Advisory and Founder, SecurityCurve
- Jeff Bradberry – IT Security Manager, BrightPoint
To maximize efficiency, manage risk and reduce potential violations due to compliance failure, organizations need to implement tools that apply and support multiple specifications across difference compliance requisites.  Network Access Control (NAC) supports numerous critical security and protection functions across multiple mandates. This interactive expert / user session, led by IANS faculty advisor Diana Kelly of Security curve with end user participant Jeff Bradberry of BrightPoint, will examine NAC and real-world compliance use cases.  Attendees will discover:
  • Key NAC functions that apply to compliance processes and specifications
  • Real-world use cases; considerations, controls, activities and processes
  • How NAC specifically maps to top commercial, regulatory and federal mandates
