In the last few years, many organizations have had to face numerous security issues due to the exponential proliferation of IP-enabled devices. Endpoint devices often leave the network perimeter and come back compromised or uncompliant, especially because employees need to access network data anytime and anywhere. With sophisticated cyber-attacks and the use of IoT, BYOD, and mobility on the rise, network exposure to data breaches has become very common. Organizations need solutions that provide visibility and manageability, while also reducing data exposure and helping them meet regulatory compliance requirements. Organizations lacking visibility and control over endpoint access authorization and continuous compliance incur significantly higher risk profiles. In order to reduce this risk, companies are challenged with finding solutions that are both technically sound, and do not incur implementation penalties that negatively impact operations.
