Colleges Want BYOD to Work But Are Struggling to Keep Networks and Data Secure

Colleges Want BYOD to Work But Are Struggling to Keep Networks and Data Secure | IT Security | Scoop.it

Mobility is powering new learning methods and opening the door for major security risks.

 

Whilst this is a huge opportunity for professors and students to engage in new learning styles — it's also an opportunity for hackers and criminals to gain access to networks and potential sensitive data.

IS Decisions's insight:

Happy to say the new UserLock 7 offers Wi-Fi session control to mitigate BYOD risk and strengthen the first line of defense in a Windows Network.
