Report reveals how the Gartner Managed Diversity Model minimizes risks to the organization while maximizing productivity and satisfaction of BYOD/CYOD users
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and Choose Your Own Device (CYOD) trends are transforming the way organizations manage network access. Gone are the days when organizations could sustain an IT environment in which 100 percent of the endpoints accessing the network were corporate-owned (managed). Today’s employees and contractors are using personally owned (unmanaged) laptops, tablets and smartphones at work—and circumventing policies if a structure is not in place to accommodate them.
For IT managers, there has to be a middle ground—and there is. It’s called a managed diversity model, and this is what Gartner has to say about it: “Gartner’s managed diversity model gives endpoint computing a structured compromise toward end-user device choice while protecting assets and supporting end-user productivity.” The Gartner report:
- Discusses the Managed Diversity Model* in depth
- Addresses IT’s most pressing endpoint management concerns in today’s rapidly changing—and challenging—enterprise security environment
- Offers suggestions to minimize organizational risk while maximizing productivity
No matter which device management approach you choose, you need a network access control solution that lets you see unmanaged devices on your network and enforce security practices and policies. Forescout offers the unique ability to see managed and unmanaged devices the instant they connect to the network and control them and orchestrate information sharing and operation among disparate security tools.
