We know it sucks, but BYOD and IoT are changing the way employees access your company's data. Next year more than 50% of the devices connecting to enterprise networks will be owned by employees. Within 3 years, IoT devices will have a significant presence in the enterprise. So why should you care about all these new devices showing up in your office?

They carry all your company's critical data, and none of the security tools you have today can even see them.

The security implications of this shift are huge, and already being felt:

  • 86% of InfoSec professionals cite connected device threats as a major security issue
  • 55% of InfoSec professionals have seen an attack via a wireless device
  • 38% of InfoSec professionals have seen an attack via a mobile device

In this webinar John Pescatore will examine how to apply the CIS Critical Controls in an BYOD and IoT world. John, together with Pwnie Express CEO Paul Paget, will explore how to gain visibility and control over all wired, wireless, bluetooth and cellular network devices in and around an enterprise.

Pwnie Express will also demonstrate their Pulse security platform that provides:

  • Complete visibility into all wired & wireless devices in a distributed enterprise
  • Device threat detection, fingerprinting and analytics to identify and prioritize risky devices
  • Alerting, reporting and intelligence required to mitigate device threats
  • The ability to run continuous and fully distributed security assessments
