"While free Wi-Fi is ubiquitous in airports, coffee shops, hotels, and other highly trafficked areas, this service is no longer unique to these locales. Guest Wi-Fi is now expected in nearly every industry – but how do you deliver Wi-Fi while enforcing acceptable use policies and meeting compliance regulations?
Dive into the requirements for Wi-Fi security by consulting this brief resource today. Inside, find five essential recommendations to help you make Wi-Fi security your business reality – read on to get started now."
The threat landscape has evolved and the traditional approach to endpoint security cannot keep up. Detection/response is not an acceptable approach. There are a number of approaches to prevent threats on the endpoint and their ability to prevent unknown and zero-day threats varies widely. Join this webinar featuring a guest speaker from Forrester where we will discuss the findings from a recent commissioned survey they conducted that evaluates these approaches and illustrates that exploit prevention and integration with a network security platform are must-have capabilities. Forrester will also summarize their recommendations for prevention of advanced threats on the endpoint.
Your users, especially when working outside of the office, no longer need to always connect to the corporate network to get work done. They often connect directly to SaaS apps. And, let’s face it, employees also don’t turn on the VPN if they’re using their work laptop for personal use — which means they’re left with very little security protection.
Plus, many organizations are now using direct internet connections at branch offices, which means employees and guest users don’t get the protection of your traditional security stack. Not only are more offices connecting directly to the internet — it’s estimated that 70% of branch offices already have some direct internet access — but attackers recognize these weak points in their targets and have started exploiting them more.
To solve these new challenges, security controls must also shift to the cloud. This in-depth white paper describes how security must evolve to protect users anywhere they access the internet.
Security and management are critical to enterprise mobility—but they’re also complex. Dive deeper in this virtual roundtable with guests from Forrester Research, Inc., Good, and BoxTone. Learn more about mobile security trends, concerns, and myths.

The What, Why and How to Employ NAC to Apply Guest Networking, BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and Endpoint Security Policies.
Many of today's endpoints are neither known nor protected. According to Gartner, enterprises are only aware of 80 percent of the devices on their network. Those 20 percent of unknown devices are inside the perimeter of the network, are unmanaged and provide users with access. They are small, varied and highly mobile, and they are loaded with their own applications, can act as WAPs, and often contain outdated firmware or are jailbroken. Even as the devices are accessing personal applications on the web, they are also accessing corporate resources such as e-mail-all from the very same unmanaged devices, which have not been vetted by the security organization. Smartphones, notebooks, netbooks, iPads, e-readers, gaming consoles and more-the list of personal devices attempting access to employer networks seems to grow every day in what's come to be known as the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) era in networking.
In this whitepaper Gartner evaluates a variety of networking vendors providing access layer connectivity. Vendors must have an end-to-end hardware solution, but increasingly, vendor differentiation centers on network services, including guest access, onboarding, security and management tools.

In the age of evolving shopper expectations and technology advancements, the global retail industry is in the midst of a profound shift in retail operations. To gain a deeper understanding of retailers’ focus, concerns and investment plans, Zebra conducted a global research study across a wide spectrum of retail segments, including: specialty stores, department stores, apparel merchants, supermarkets, electronics, home improvement and drugstore chains. The results of this study are shared in this 2017 Retail Vision Study.
Founded in 1898, the department store chain The Bon-Ton Stores has a long history of innovation. One of the largest regional department store operators in the United States, the retailer is constantly implementing new strategies and technologies to improve customer service in all of its sales channels – beginning with enhancing the customer’s experience on the sales floor.
Organizations around the world are embracing the economic and operational benefits of cloud computing. Whether organizations are extending internal resources or fully deploying on Microsoft Azure, the ability to take advantage of the business benefits of cloud require that organizations continue to meet key security requirements. Azure delivers a trusted cloud infrastructure on which customers can design, build and manage their own cloud applications and infrastructure. While Azure provides security controls for the infrastructure and change to virtualization layers, deploying organizations are responsible for deploying and maintaining security for the guest operating systems, applications, and data in order to protect against malware attacks, zero-day vulnerabilities and data breaches. Read this white paper to lean more about Trend Micro Instant-On Cloud Security for Microsoft Azure.
Guests, contractors, vendors, business partners, and other temporary users require and expect certain level of network access within organizations that they visit. Corporate network access has been typically open; internal LAN connections have seldom required authentication. Today however, regulatory and other security concerns demand that organizations adopt a more secure posture towards these short-term users.
