“Effective mobile device management is critical because of an explosion in the number of mobile devices, network connections and the data they carry. …Because these devices connect to networks with or without permission, a new comprehensive approach is required…Mobile devices must be managed consistently and automatically. NAC offers additional safeguards by initiating an MDM-managed device profile check on access and then managing access to network resources, something not generally available from MDM only deployments. ForeScout Mobile and ForeScout MDM fulfil a variety of common security tasks plus some specialist ones like erasing content on lost devices…These tools are easy to use, manage and deploy, and they will improve mobile device management and security using visibility and effective control.”
