Network Security That Works for IT and Users

Wednesday, May 16 | 3:45PM–4:45PM | White River Ballroom C
Session Type: Professional Development
The traditional approach to network security is to institute top-down policy measures that are then imposed on users with a patchwork of systems to maintain compliance. This approach is inherently flawed because it fails to make the user an active participant in creating and maintaining a secure computing environment. American University will discuss how the implementation of Impulse Point's network access control solution balanced IT staff and users' need for convenient access. Impulse Point will also present the user-centric elements of its NAC solution.
