Network Access Control and Mobile Device Management Enhance BYOD

Network Access Control and Mobile Device Management Enhance BYOD

by MaaS360 staff | May 29, 2012

As standalone offerings, NAC and MDM give contemporary IT the tools to solidify their network security and device management initiatives. Integrating NAC features into a MDM solution leaves IT with one of the most flexible approaches to securely support Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs in the enterprise.

The Industry's First Mobile Device Management and Network Access Control Offering

Earlier this month, MaaS360 by Fiberlink and ForeScout Technologies, Inc. announced a partnership to deliver the industry's first full integration of NAC into a MDM offering, ForeScout MDM powered by MaaS360, a service of Fiberlink. Since its launch, the solution has been implemented at a Fortune 500 company in the Finance industry, and will be applicable in other industries with similarly high regulation standards.

This solution offers MaaS360's unique lineup of cloud-based Mobile Device Management feature sets, giving IT the tools to manage the entire iOS, Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone device lifecycle (enrollment to security, monitoring, application management and support).

Integration with ForeScout CounterACT offers the following advantages:

  • Visibility into personal smartphones and tablets that are not managed or enrolled in the MDM client
  • Automated enrollment capabilities, ensuring unmanaged and noncompliant devices remain unconnected from the network
  • On-demand profiling the moment a smartphone or tablet attempts to connect to the network
  • Device and mobility support expanding beyond smartphones and tablets
  • Device visibility and policy control combined into one console
