"Managing the BYOD Onslaught with a Blueprint for Success"
Unlike corporate-issued devices that are well-managed and under IT's control, the BYOD initiative introduces a unique set of security challenges that require a balance of flexibility, visibility and security. This presentation will explain the concept of a "BYOD Blueprint," incorporating network access control and mobile device management technologies, and lessons learned from onboarding personal devices to more than 800 networks across the education, healthcare and enterprise markets.

"Network Access Control (NAC) in the Cloud: A New Deployment Alternative"
SaaS offerings for network access control are new to the market, having been previously available only in on-premise options. SaaS solutions for NAC offer an effective alternative for delivering visibility and control on wired and wireless networks. A true SaaS deployment requires no hardware on site and provides efficient and easy scalability. In this session, Bradford will discuss Xtra Mart Convenience Stores' implementation of a NAC SaaS solution to identify, classify, and monitor every endpoint, including security cameras, safes, environmental monitoring systems, cash registers and PCs, at approximately 200 retail locations.
