iScan Online announced a new user-friendly approach that will prioritize and simplify how users remediate their own devices. The new BYOD remediation feature categorizes issues by vendor and directs users to the easiest ways to update their devices to reduce and eliminate vulnerabilities.
More organizations are facing the security challenges created when individuals bring their own devices, such as smartphones and tablets, to the enterprise. On the one hand, they can increase employee productivity, but on the other, they can introduce risks to network and data security. Because these devices are employee owned, they cannot be remediated via traditional patch and system management solutions.
iScan Online’s BYOD remediation breaks these barriers by categorizing and prioritizing the issues identified on the device and empowering users with concise guidance and active links for remediating their devices.
“Given traditional security scanning approaches, the amount of data presented to the average user is overwhelming and confusing to BYOD users, resulting in no action being taken to secure their devices,” said Carl Banzhof, CEO of iScan Online. “We’ve taken away the complexity and security geek speak by providing an easily actionable list of ‘top things you need to do today.'”
iScan Online is pioneering security in BYOD and managed service environments. This new capability not only helps organizations secure their networks and applications against the risks introduced from vulnerable devices, it also empowers end users to become more aware of security risks and take action to protect themselves and their companies.
