Securing the edge empowered by Genians Device Platform Intelligence
North Andover, Mass. – Oct 21, 2019 – Genians, the leader in providing Cloud-managed Network Access Control (NAC) solutions, announced today it will be attending the MISA Ontario 2019 InfoSec Conference & Trade Show at Casino Rama in Orillia, Ontario, from October 21 – 23 2019.
Since 2005, Genians has helped organizations achieve better insight, access control, and security for all connected devices in wired, wireless, and virtual network environments. Now, Genians has reimagined network access control to secure edge networks more effectively in the cloud/IoT era empowered by Genians device platform intelligence.
Device platform intelligence can easily correlate device fingerprinting data with contextual data to dramatically enhance network visibility. It not only provides a more dynamic, real-time view of the devices themselves, but also a comprehensive understanding of all IT security risk indicators present.
By 2020, Gartner indicates that almost 20.4 billion IoT devices will be network-connected. For many organizations, that is a technological tsunami. Without the benefit of device platform intelligence, organizations will not know what devices are connecting to their network, who is using them, or how they are being used on the network.
As Genians CTO/Co-founder Kyeyeon Kim notes, “Apart from this great wave of IoT devices, we also still need to control a multitude of legacy devices and systems. Windows 7 is a great example of the challenges ahead. After January 2020 it will no longer be supported and thus will become a major new point of vulnerability. You may be able to take care of your known Windows machines, but what about those unknown or transient Windows machines brought in by guests, contractors, even rogue users? And of critical importance: how are you going to ensure that all connected devices are operating at the demanding compliance level your organization needs and expects? Without securing those devices at the edge, you will not be able to build the foundational cybersecurity framework required for securing your IT/OT infrastructure.”
Kyeyeon further added: “Thanks to Genians’ focus on intelligence, control, and compliance, it is much easier to fully control any IP-enabled device without disturbing your operational environment. It is also easy to share contextual data between other IT security assets on your network – and to refine your data to be more meaningful to your business stakeholders.”
Genians Next-Gen NAC can efficiently perform ongoing compliance checks to ensure that all connected devices are automatically identified, classified, authorized, and given policy-based access control. Right out of the box, it provides all the major features network managers expect, such as IP Address Management (IPAM), desktop configuration management, complete security control over Wi-Fi access, automated IT security operation, IT asset management, and much more.
