When it comes to security, information is power. Firewalls, anti-virus software, and overzealous character password requirements are irrelevant if unknown devices are already accessing your network. Like a sleeper agent, these trusted yet unknown devices can create huge vulnerabilities for an organization’s network.
For many organizations and network security professionals, guarding against such devices means an end to BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and a tighter hold on internal network access. True security can only be achieved if network operators know where a suspicious device is located, who used it last, and how to shut it down.
