Companies need it. Employees want it. Hackers love it. BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) seems to have something for everyone.
Companies like the idea that employees are, at least in principle, available to work 24/7. Employees like the freedom BYOD gives them. They can work from anywhere and plan their time in a way that’s best for them.
Unfortunately for employers and employees alike, hackers consider BYOD a gold mine. As long as they can compromise one endpoint on a network, they can leverage themselves onto it and get everything they need to advance their own careers. Simply put, BYOD is not secure, even if companies severely limit what their employees do with their network-enabled devices.
Companies might be able to restrict browsing, limit downloads, and control network access, but only if they bear the cost of giving their employees a mobile device to use for corporate business. This is because employees bristle when it comes to companies telling them how to use their own devices. Whatever way you look at it, in the end, it’s a standoff. Both sides want it all. Until recently, there seemed to be no way around this impasse. Until recently, no matter what security measures were taken (sandboxing, containerization, the cloud, virtualization, encryption) none was able to prevent hacker intrusions through a compromised endpoint.
However, now, a solution to this problem has emerged. InZero Systems has developed a novel security architecture that allows both sides to get what they want. Employees are able to browse and use the internet as carelessly as they want and they still cannot compromise sensitive corporate data. How is this possible? Well, rather than having me try to explain it, take a look at this just released slideshow and see for yourself.
