Layered security for mobile devices
Security consultant Eric Ogren recently blogged about how VDI is a great supplement to NAC, and how these vastly different technologies can work together.
We agree. Customers that we're talking with are looking at various technologies -- network access control, mobile device management, and VDI. Depending on the nature of their business, and what they are trying to accomplish, and their budget, different customers will decide on different types of solutions. Many customers decide on a strategy to use multiple technologies in complementary ways. Sort of like a speedometer:
Today with the launch of ForeScout Mobile, we are increasing our level of compementary integration with MDM systems. This is especially interesting to customers who have budgetary constraints. An efficient and cost-effective approach is to provide different levels of mobile security to different classes of users and devices by deploying ForeScout CounterACT and ForeScout Mobile to cover basic mobile security requirements, and linking to MDM systems for more advanced (or high-value) users.
