Identifying and controlling who and what connects to the corporate network is the first step to securing the enterprise. Today, networks serve a vast array of traditional and non-traditional devices and other endpoints—everything from PCs, tablets and smartphones to industrial controls, virtualized servers, wireless access points and cloud-based applications.
