Application Visibility at the Branch for Your BYOD Solution

In 2011, IDC research reported that for the first time ever, more devices shipped without an Ethernet port than with one. As IT administrators prepare for this onslaught of wireless mobility in the workplace, we are faced with more challenges than ever before. - how much bandwidth is enough? What types of devices might show up?

Today most personal devices are Apple or Android devices - but what about next year? How can IT administrators prepare for an unknown set of devices, with unknown bandwidth and connectivity requirements, with the same number of resources, and still rest assured that they can confidently say their networks are secure, high-performance, and ready for the next wave of new technology?

This situation describes the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) predicament. Efforts to allow users to bring their own devices to work in order to improve productivity and mobility are countered by the worry that devices may not be secure and that workers may be distracted by applications rather than using the device for work activities.

But above all, supporting and troubleshooting these unmanaged devices and the effect they may have on the network could place an overwhelming burden on the limited IT staff.
