Companies exploring IoT technologies that improve the efficiency of business and IT functionalities are faced with critical decisions. Teams must decide whether it is prudent to bypass policy requirements in favor of adopting IoT solutions that support business objectives. Coupled with the burden of limited and untrained IT resources and a lack of baseline IoT security knowledge, a means of discovering and securing IoT devices is required to attain complete network visibility, enforce endpoint security policy, and prevent the propagation of the Threat Black Hole. 

In this webinar, learn: 


- Why automated discovery and access of IoT is essential to shine light upon the Threat Black Hole 

- How network and access solutions dynamically discover devices quickly within existing infrastructure 

- Secure Access best practices to secure IoT implementations using network access control (NAC)
