BYOD Support on Next Generation Firewall Series

UserSense engine enhanced to inspect data and monitor traffic for better control over devices

GajShield has introduced BYOD Policy Creation on its Next Generation firewall series. This new feature will enhance the UserSense engine in their popular DC Series to inspect, detect and monitor the traffic and control the devices being used by employees. It can identify whether the traffic has come from a mobile device or desktop device. Based on this information, enterprises can set up different BYOD policies limiting the access to internet or mobile applications.

More than often employees are allowed to bring in devices which are not controlled by the enterprise. Many of these devices have varied OS, with malicious apps getting downloaded. These devices can compromise enterprise network with unaccounted traffic. Using the GajShield Object Oriented Policy Security Management, enterprises can do the following

  • Block access to critical servers in DMZ to BYOD devices
  • Setup Data Leak Prevention policies which monitor and block all upload from these BYOD devices
  • Block risky applications which can lead to data leak from  BYOD devices
  • Setup policies to limit access to internet from these devices
  • Control and limit the bandwidth used by these devices
  • Limit access to internet based on time. (Education institutes do not want students to have access to internet during class hours)
  • Redirect the BYOD devices to non-critical internet link so business applications are not affected
