Bradford Networks and AirWatch to Showcase Blueprint for Secure BYOD at AirWatch Connect 2013

Bradford Networks to Demonstrate How the Integration of NAC and MDM Technologies Ensures Full Visibility and Control of the Network and Mobile Devices

BARCELONA, SPAIN -- (Marketwire) -- 02/25/13 -- AirWatch Connect 2013 - Bradford Networks, the best choice to enable secure network access for corporate issued and personal mobile devices, and AirWatch, the largest Mobile Device Management (MDM) provider in the world, today announced the companies will showcase a blueprint for addressing the unique security concerns brought about by the Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) trend at the AirWatch Connect 2013 user conference. AirWatch Connect is being held in Barcelona, Spain, February 25-28, 2013 in conjunction with Mobile World Congress 2013.

"BYOD has created new challenges for IT departments, introducing many new devices, each with its own security posture, that need to be monitored and managed as they attempt to access the network," said John Marshall, CEO, AirWatch. "Our partnership with Bradford Networks creates the foundation for a comprehensive security strategy that integrates network access control with mobile device management to ensure network security and integrity at the edge of the network."

Bradford Networks and AirWatch announced a strategic partnership in August 2012, which combines the benefits of AirWatch's MDM solutions with Bradford Networks' network access control (NAC) solution to deliver the industry's first BYOD Blueprint. The joint offering provides an integrated, easy-to-use and affordable solution to manage and secure corporate and employee-owned mobile devices on the corporate network, thereby comprehensively addressing today's BYOD security concerns.

In addition to AirWatch Connect 2013, AirWatch and Bradford Networks will hold a joint webinar on March 26, 2013 to showcase the BYOD Blueprint and explain how their technologies complement each other to ensure full visibility and control of the network and mobile devices in this era of IT consumerization.

"With the influx of personal devices on corporate networks, IT organizations need to be sure that the applications that employees are using on their mobile devices are trusted; they must be sure of the integrity and secure configuration of endpoint devices; and they need to secure the network by controlling access to resources based on pre-established access policies," said Tom Murphy, CMO at Bradford Networks. "AirWatch is the ideal partner for creating a BYOD blueprint that provides a holistic approach to addressing these security challenges. We encourage attendees to stop by our booth at AirWatch Connect 2013 to see this integrated solution for secure BYOD in action."

"The partnership between Bradford Networks and AirWatch enables us to provide a more comprehensive, strategic offering for BYOD that addresses our customers' demands for mobility, together with complete visibility, security and control over each device and user requesting access to the network. The BYOD Blueprint gives us a competitive advantage and is helping to fuel growth and penetrate new markets," said Matt Ashman, co-founder and sales director, Khipu Networks.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
