Reading, England. October 10, 2012
With the number of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives in the workplace on the rise, organisations of all sizes are struggling to keep adequate security controls in place whilst gaining the financial benefits offered by BYOD. Rebasoft, the network and security monitoring company, has delivered its latest version of Security Auditor to help overcome these security problems.
In order to protect network security, it is crucial that BYOD are confined to parts of the network where security controls can be applied and that organisations be alerted if a device is accessing areas it shouldn’t. Security Auditor supports BYOD initiatives by:
1) Maintaining a real-time record of what end-devices are connected and, more importantly, where they are connecting ensuring that they are not bypassing network access controls and other security measures.
2) Categorising end-devices so that both BYOD and company provided devices can be effectively managed and authorised
3) Automatically generating alerts in real-time to security breaches eg new devices on the network, a device being where it shouldn’t be or unauthorised network changes
“The challenges presented by BYODs are dominating the headlines and it is more important than ever for businesses to know who and what is using your network. But if organisations get the right systems in place then these challenges need not be a headache. Our software gives security professionals the information and intelligence they need to identify devices and determine where there are risks enabling them to act quickly and effectively to mitigate any potential breach of security.” said Philip Harragan, Chief Executive Officer at Rebasoft.
Security Auditor is immediately available through Rebasoft’s worldwide partners. For more information visit Rebasoft’s website
