· Participants in the InfoExpress and Aliado Solutions Secure BYOD Education webinar series will hear from industry and security experts on trends, risks, benefits and requirements associated with BYOD implementations, see product demonstrations and have the opportunity to ask questions.
· Qualified attendees - those with 500 or more employees or 1,000 BYOD devices - are eligible to receive a free secure BYOD risk assessment. The assessment consists of a BYOD policy review, network device discovery and GAP analysis of BYOD policy and network discovery.
· Aliado Solutions' BYOD methodology systematically determines the customer's current situation to determine the appropriate strategy that supports business priorities. Based on the data collected a comprehensive strategy is developed to include a detailed implementation roadmap. Depending on need, Aliado experts work directly with the customer to implement, manage, audit and train IT personnel.
· The addition of InfoExpress CGX to Aliado Solutions' BYOD methodology provides proven NAC technology to facilitate automated self-onboarding to reduce IT involvement with registration and configuration, and improves security by tracking user devices and enforcing BYOD policy.
· InfoExpress CGX is a next generation device security platform that delivers agentless BYOD, guest access, device profiling and registration and MDM deployment to WLAN and LAN environments. The heart of CGX is its policy management system that enables administrators to easily configure policies that keep track of users and their devices and react appropriately to security incidents. These actions reduce costs and increase productivity by automating registration processes, remediating devices, alerting administrators and notifying users of corrective actions.
"The partnership with InfoExpress, and the addition of its CGX Secure BYOD solution to our proven BYOD methodology, significantly increases the benefits to our customers," said Rochelle Hasner, Practice Lead at Aliado Solutions. "Leveraging CGX, we are now better able to prevent data loss, ensure security policies are enforced, enhance compliance by limiting access to authorized devices and reduce cost through streamlined device onboarding and reduction in the number of corporate-owned devices."
"Organizations of all sizes will benefit from our partnership with Aliado Solutions," said Stacey Lum, CEO of InfoExpress. "A well thought out BYOD strategy offers many rewards, and using CGX provides the best path to a successful BYOD deployment."
