Only 9 Percent of Organizations Are Aware of the Devices Accessing Their Corporate Data
CAMBRIDGE, MA, Apr 09, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Bradford Networks, the best choice to enable secure network access
for corporate issued and personal mobile devices, today announced
that CMO Tom Murphy will participate on an April 12 webinar panel
with SANS, HP and MobileIron. The panel will examine the results of
SANS' "First Annual Mobile Security Survey," offering insights and
best practices on how to effectively manage Bring Your Own Device
(BYOD) risk and compliance.
"With the onslaught of mobile devices in the enterprise, the intent
of this survey was to determine how organizations are currently
handling the risks associated with a Bring Your Own Device Security
policy," said Kevin Johnson, senior SANS analyst and survey author.
"We were shocked to find that while more than 60 percent of
organizations allow their employees to bring their own devices, only
9 percent felt they were fully aware of the devices accessing
corporate data. We decided to conduct this webinar to help the large
number or organizations that continue to struggle with BYOD."
Presented by the SANS Analyst Program, this webinar will feature
executives from Bradford Networks, HP and MobileIron who will unveil
the complete results of the First Annual SANS Mobility Security
Survey and examine the current state of BYOD in today's enterprise.
Panelist Tom Murphy will discuss the importance of network visibility
and explain the role of network access control (NAC) in building a
secure BYOD policy.
"The survey results proved what we have suspected all along --
organizations are not prepared for the proliferation of mobile
devices across the enterprise," said Tom Murphy, CMO of Bradford
Networks. "Businesses need to balance the productivity gains of BYOD
with the very real concerns around protecting sensitive data. This
starts by gaining visibility into all the devices that are accessing
the network. I'm excited to join this esteemed panel and address the
major security issues that organizations face when implementing BYOD
by sharing Bradford's real world experiences."
The webinar will take place Thursday, April 12, 2012 at 1:00 PM EDT.
