- Allow personal devices to enhance employee productivity
- Ensure personal devices do not compromise the network
- Strengthen network security measures
While many IT managers see Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) as an inevitable disruption that opens the network to security risks, users see it as a great enabler of personal productivity and efficiency. Enterprises need the ability to enforce usage rules for personal devices once they are on the network. BYOD rules may include throttling heavy usage, blocking downloads of exe/zip files, allotting more bandwidth to employee devices over guest devices, and giving priority to business applications. Allot’s superior DPI technology provides device signatures in the same way that it provides application signatures, and it updates them regularly. This ensures timely and accurate identification of non-corporate devices and their traffic on the network.
