Plixer And Enterasys Networks Enhance BYOD Security And Reporting

Webcast reveals methods to leverage NetFlow reporting and mobile IAM features
SANFORD, Maine, May 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Plixer International, Inc., a leading provider of NetFlow-based network traffic reporting, and Enterasys Networks today announced a joint webcast titled, "Secure BYOD and Monitor its Traffic for Abuse and Threats." The two events will be held on Tuesday, June 5th at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. EDT and convey new insight on improving mobile device management by allowing IT staff to identify smartphone and tablet users by name and specific device type as well as website interaction and potential security threats.

Michael Patterson, Plixer's CEO, joins Ali Kafel, director of product marketing at Enterasys, to discuss how their proven solutions work together to deliver new visibility and control over personal Android, Apple and Blackberry-based devices using corporate networks for Internet access. Additionally, webcast attendees will gain insight about:

-- BYOD capabilities and requirements that successful enterprises are applying today -- Mobile device connectivity pitfalls and how to avoid them -- Bandwidth consumption by operating system and per switch -- Number of mobile devices, operating systems and specific users connecting to the network -- Identifying applications and websites visited by users -- Avoiding security pitfalls from mobile devices without proper antivirus software. "From a network perspective, there is very little difference between a smartphone accessing a website and a PC. However, IT administrators need to delineate the bandwidth consumption because most mobile device traffic is unsecured personal usage," Patterson said. "Our webcast will show administrators how to break out mobile devices by operating system, username or IP address and group them by any combination using Enterasys' Mobile IAM BYOD Solution and Plixer's NetFlow exports. Joint customers have already experienced added security and threat avoidance benefits."
