ISTE 2012: A Cure for BYOD Headaches
There’s nothing that gets a school administrator more upset than the idea of kids and teachers bringing their own devices to connect to the school’s network, printers and other shared resources. Enterasys Networks has a better idea with the company’s Mobile Identity and Access Manager. Based on the company’s OneFabric technology, the software provides a common way to log on and get provisioned for access to the portions of the infrastructure that the person is approved for. The key is that it excels in the BYOD world where it needs to work just as well with desktops in the computer lab, notebooks in the math department as Android slates and iPads students bring in. The software costs roughly $8 per device.
