Hence, most of the enterprises have instituted teams with their IT departments to scale up their network security technology on the concurrent basis. According to industry estimates, over 90% of the security breaches occur inside the company’s network. While almost every company has basic network security infrastructure in place, such as firewall and anti-virus (AV), modern threats have grown beyond the capabilities of these basic security solutions.

Network Security in the Age of BYOD, WYOD, and Mobility Trends 

Increasing trend of mobility and bring your own device (BYOD) trend has made the mobile security amongst the top security concern globally. Management and access control of wide variety of mobile devices with multiple versions of software have become the prime importance for securing the corporate network along with security policy formulation and implementation across corporate networks. In addition, the companies are facing challenges with increasing adoption of wearable technologies and are looking for extended security policies to include wear your own device (WYOD) trend.

While networks can’t clean the devices regularly to avoid malware infections, it can guard their access to detect malwares from entering corporate network. Users are likely to disable certain security settings and download apps on to their devices that are potentially virulent. This compromises the security of the smart devices and so, organizations need to ensure that these affected devices do not pass on the breach onto the network.
