It’s easy to underestimate the risk presented by the lack of strong network access security. Phishing attacks, botnets and ransomware may grab all the headlines. But failure to properly secure the way BYOD and guest users connect to the network with their personal devices also leaves you open to data compromise.
Hackers can spy on unencrypted wireless data traffic using widely available network analysis tools. If a user connects a device without proper security measures in place, they might introduce malware into your environment. Without role-based policies for network access, it’s hard to restrict access to the appropriate level. These are only a few of the risk areas.
Default methods for getting users connected, like MAC authentication and conventional pre-shared keys (PSKs), come with very serious security flaws. They also provide a poor user experience for network onboarding and authentication. User frustration means more help desk tickets for IT.
It doesn’t have to be this way. With the right system in place for secure network access, users can connect quickly and easily. Intuitive self-service workflows let them self-provision their devices without IT intervention. You get to focus on high-priority projects rather than day-to-day network access issues. A host of powerful safeguards increase security for users, devices, data and the network.
