BYOD and Guest Access Security

Ensuring BYOD security and guest access security can be big challenges. S3M offers expert guidance & proven solutions to help.

What is BYOD approach?

BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is an approach where employees are allowed to use their own personal devices, such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops, to access company information, applications, and data. This approach is becoming increasingly popular in the modern workplace, as it allows employees to work from their preferred devices, and provides companies with cost savings on hardware and software expenses.

But... BYOD devices are risky.

There are some potential risks about the employees’ using their own devices, such as:
  • Data breaches: When employees access sensitive company information on their personal devices, it increases the risk of a data breach. Personal devices may not have the same level of security as company-owned devices, and employees may not follow the same security protocols.
  • Malware: Personal devices may be more vulnerable to malware and other security threats, which can spread to the company network if an infected device is used to access it.
  • Device loss or theft: Personal devices are more likely to be lost or stolen than company-owned devices, which can put sensitive data at risk.
  • Unauthorized access: Personal devices can be used by unauthorized individuals to gain access to sensitive company data, especially if an employee’s device is lost or stolen and not properly secured.
  • Lack of control: With personal devices accessing the company network, it can be challenging for IT departments to enforce security policies, monitor access, and control data flow.

How can I protect BYOD devices with NAC?

First things first: authentication. S3M NAC requires authentication before a device is allowed to connect to the network. This will help ensure that only authorized devices and users are granted access. EPP module can also perform health checks on devices before they are allowed to connect to the network. It ensures that devices are up-to-date with security patches and software, and do not pose a security risk. Plus, network segmentation is a big one here. S3M NAC segments the network based on user roles, devices, and applications. It limits the impact of security breaches and contain malware outbreaks. Finally, monitoring feature can monitor network traffic for security threats and respond to incidents as they occur. So that you will prevent your organizations from security breaches and minimize the impact of any security incidents.
