The hustle and bustle of modern business can help spur great things and innovations in the marketplace. Unfortunately, this culture of speed and “get things done now!” also has a negative effect on internet security. If employees think they know better than the IT department about which applications to use, they can open the network up to possible attacks and intrusions.
This is precisely why Cisco developed App Discovery for IT use and it’s a game-changer. App Discovery can identify and block applications that wayward employees try to download and install on their devices. This keeps the integrity of the network in check and also reigns in unchecked employee disobedience to the network protocols and rules.
