Mobility – The Future of Communications
Whether on a desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone, employees are becoming increasingly mobile within traditional office environments, creating new requirements for access, security, and management. This ability to work anywhere is equally likely to take workers beyond the confines of a traditional office environment, introducing new challenges stemming from the use of personal devices that communicate over unsecure Internet connections. Mobility extends beyond just wireless access points and controllers and encompasses identity and access control, device management, application and end-user virtualization, and security. BYOD and remote access are the new norm and the now permeable network edge must be approached with mobility in mind first.
