Organizations of all sizes have gained monetary advantages due to the rising popularity of Bring Your Own Device initiatives. Organizations are, however, concerned regarding the security controls being used with BYOD. Rebasoft has unveiled an enhanced version of Security Auditor, which will assist organizations to resolve issues related to security. Security Auditor v 2.6 is now commercially available through global associates of Rebasoft.
As part of ensuring network safety, organizations need to restrict the BYOD only to parts of the network where safety measures can be incorporated. In the event of a device accessing an unrestricted area, a mechanism to alert the organizations needs to be implemented.
With Security Auditor, organizations can now track the end-devices connected to the network in real-time. Security Auditor also provides details regarding the parts of the networks where the devices have connected, ensuring that the network access controls and other protection measures have not been circumvented.
Both BYOD and company offered devices can be supervised and sanctioned in an efficient manner as Security Auditor allows the classification of end-devices. Instantaneous alerts are also generated by Security Auditor automatically whenever a security infringement occurs. Organizations can be alerted if a new device joins the network or if a device tries to access a restricted area or unofficial changes to the network are being made.
In a statement, Philip Harragan, CEO of Rebasoft said, “The challenges presented by BYODs are dominating the headlines and it is more important than ever for businesses to know who and what is using your network. But if organizations get the right systems in place then these challenges need not be a headache. Our software gives security professionals the information and intelligence they need to identify devices and determine where there are risks enabling them to act quickly and effectively to mitigate any potential breach of security.”
Ground-breaking software solutions provided by Rebasoft ensure successful network and security operations. A group of network and security experts launched Rebasoft with an aim to offer best-in-class products to address the specific requirements of the customers. The organization was founded with an objective to reduce the limitations faced by current network and security systems.
