CAMPBELL, Calif., November 10, 2014 Forescout Technologies, Inc., the leading provider of pervasive network security solutions for Global 2000 enterprises and government organizations, announced that Joshua Wright, senior technical analyst with Counter Hack; Scott Gordon, CMO at Forescout, and Matt Santill, CISO at Broward College, will participate in a new webinar to discuss the disruption that the consumerization of IT has on traditional endpoint security protections.

Regardless of whether end-user mobile devices are owned by an organization, or by the employee and supported through a BYOD program, the consumerization of IT creates significant strain on the IT function. The advantages of increased access levels that these devices afford are often times offset by the additional risk that potentially non-compliant devices can introduce into a network – a risk that traditional endpoint controls are unable to effectively mitigate. Wright, Gordon and Santill will discuss methods of managing these risks associated with a Bring Your Own Everything (BYOE) environment, and then discuss the mitigation capabilities of a robust, integrated next-generation NAC solution.

Attendees will come away with knowledge about:

  • New layers of risk presented by BYOD that traditional endpoint security is unable to effectively manage.
  • How to identify various threats including hacks, drive-by-downloads and phishing scams
  • How to effectively manage and secure BYOD devices on a user-by-user basis
  • How to employ next-generation NAC to holistically manage risk

To register for the webinar, visit https://www.sans.org/webcasts/bring-integrative-network-access-controls-98907. Those who register will be among the first to receive an advance copy of a SANS whitepaper discussing the role of NAC in a BYOD environment.
