Cisco Security Survey Spotlights Consumers’ Influence on Enterprise IT -> Cisco News.

     

  • Fred Kost, director, security solutions, Cisco, said: 

    “As the lines between personal and business computing increasingly blur, it is becoming clear that employees are going to use social networking and personal devices whether permitted or not. The best strategic approach is to focus less on restricting usage and more on effective solutions to ensure highly secure, responsible use. These solutions involve more than technology. Organizations should develop education programs, corporate policies and best practices in order to realize the extensive business benefits of social networking while protecting against the variety of potential threats that it can present.”

  • Chris Christiansen, program vice president, Security Products and Services Group, IDC, said: 

    “Increasingly, unapproved and unmanaged personal devices in the corporate environment are hastening the need for more intelligent security management. These “solutions” must deal with difficulty of protecting individuals and corporations while providing a positive user experience and corporate data access from any device, anywhere, anytime.”
