Hybrid workplace initiatives, IoT, and edge computing are dissolving the traditional IT perimeter. The goal for organizations is to provide anytime, anywhere connectivity without sacrificing security and maintaining visibility and control without impacting user experience.

It starts with identifying everything connecting to the network, authenticating and authorizing them, and enforcing robust policy across network.


Identify what clients are being used, how many, where they’re connecting from, and which operating systems are supported – this provides the foundation of visibil­ity. For many purpose-built loT devices, such as those found in a hospital or manufacturing plant, understand­ing the actual behaviour of the device is the only way to accurately identify them. Continuous insight into the enterprise-wide device landscape and potential device security corruption, as well as which elements come and go, gives you the visibility required over time to secure network endpoints.

Authenticate and authorize

Authenticate and authorize the devices connecting to the network, applying Zero Trust best practices related to “least access”. Define and apply access control policies that provide proper user and device access, regardless of user, device type or location; this provides an expect­ed user experience. Organizations must adapt to today’s evolving devices and their use – whether the device is a smartphone or surveillance camera.


Enforce automated response via dynamic policy con­trols and real-time threat remediation that extends to third-party systems. This is the last piece of the puzzle. Being prepared for unusual network behavior at 3 AM requires a unified approach that can block traffic and change the status of a device’s connection.

True security only occurs when there is overarching visibility and control – ensuring that only authenticated or authorized devices connect to the network. This stems from a multi-vendor, wired and wireless per device policy.
