Security and Network Administrator’s Concerns
CIOs and CISOs are increasingly worried with the large number of mobile devices geographically distributed accessing their enterprise network. Monitoring and maintaining compliance levels of these ever growing end points pose a huge challenge. Keeping pace with the rapidly growing list of checks that need to be performed on these end points adds to this challenge. Maintaining compliance is a prerequisite to ensure a clean and healthy network on an ongoing basis.
Need for Automated Endpoint Compliance
“End point compliance” implies end user machines/devices adhere to organizational policy. Such policy defines various profiles appropriate for the device and the user. Each profile defines OS versions, patch levels, AV definitions, removable device control, that the endpoints are required to comply with and a clear set of rules of DO’s and DONT’s for endpoints. End point compliance is essential to keep the enterprise network safe and secure. Users connect to the enterprise LAN from various locations to access centralized data center services. Keeping track of the state of the endpoints, connecting and accessing LAN services is a rigorous activity that can benefit enormously from automation
