Policy & Access

device visibility, control and attack response

As a growing number of IP enabled corporate devices continue to pour into the workplace, the pressures placed on
your IT department to understand and track what devices are connected to your network can be overwhelming. And
with the average employee possessing three personal devices which require access to the network, the increased
security vulnerabilities become a major concern too.

Investing in a policy management platform enables your business to effortlessly onboard new devices, allowing varying 
user access levels, keeping your network secure. Now you can safely connect both business and personal devices to
your network in compliance with your security policies.

User Authentication


Identifying which users and what devices are connecting to your network is the first stage. Automated 'policy enforcement control' ensures that only authenticated and authorised users and devices can connect to your network.

Policy enforcement control gives you the real-time visibility you need across any changes or movements on within your network, including which devices are connecting or disconnecting.

Specific device level data can also be accessed including device type and model, MAC address, IP address, NIC vendor, OS version and VLAN.

User Authentication

The proliferation of devices in the workplace means manual network policy enforcement has become less and less practical for IT teams, taking up too much time and cost whilst often leaving room for human error.

Using a secure portal, or even more secure encryption, you can pre-write policy rules to include who can onboard a device, the type of device users can onboard and how many devices each user can onboard. This allows you to enforce policies during the onboarding of new devices without any involvement from your IT department.

User Authentication


Dynamic policy controls will protect your network, providing real-time threat remediation, no matter the time of day or the location from which a device is connecting to the network. Now more than ever, you must be prepared to take immediate action if you detect unusual network behaviour; and this requires implementing a unified approach to block traffic and disconnect devices when needed.

Understanding the health of devices connecting to your network is essential to network security. By pre-defining a ‘device health level’, the solution will automatically conduct endpoint health checks ensuring only compliant devices gain access to your network.
