Mojo Enforce: Integration with Google for Education Delivers Secure School WiFi Authentication

IT organizations everywhere face the unfortunate decision to sacrifice security, control and even performance to lessen complexity and increase ease of use. Management and maintenance of the systems used today to help control access can be complex, and the need for extra appliances, software and licenses complicates this approach further. The underlying problem remains: there is no way for schools to ensure that only authorized devices connect to their WiFi network.


Cisco Advanced Malware Protection for Endpoints

Hackers are creating advanced malware that can evade even the best prevention tools, like antivirus and intrusion prevention systems. These tools will never be 100 percent effective at preventing all threats. Furthermore, they provide no visibility into threats that evade initial detection. This leaves IT security teams blind to the scope of a potential compromise and unable to quickly detect and remediate malware before it causes damage.


The Rise of the Secure Internet Gateway

The IT landscape has evolved. Critical infrastructure, applications, and data are moving to the cloud, leveraging either public or private cloud infrastructure. Salesforce.com, Box, G Suite, Office 365, and other software-as-a-service (SaaS) apps, whether sanctioned by IT or not, are commonplace in companies of all sizes and industries — even the most highly regulated ones. Not only does this raise questions about how to protect where sensitive data is going and how it’s being used, but it also changes how employees get their work done.
