This case study will explain why WSO2 implemented EMM to give Internet access to employees using mobile phones (Android, iOS). The key question was whether EMM is really needed to give Internet access through WiFi, as there are other ways to offer secured Internet WiFi access through WPA2-Enterprise requiring a RADIUS server/service or by using a captive portal connected to the company’s userstore. All these solutions can identify some of the devices’ attributes such as MacID, device Model. However, with regard to company policy, these solutions are not able to source further information such as applications installed in the device and whether the device is rooted or not. This session will also illustrate how EMM was implemented to address these requirements.

In this webinar, Shanmugarajah, director - mobile architecture at WSO2, will discuss the following topics:

  • How WSO2 EMM can help implement a very secured Wifi network based on BYOD Policy of the Enterprise
  • Overview of security in Wifi (WEP, WPA) and Enterprise Wifi (WPA2-Enterprise)
  • Drawbacks in existing Wi-Fi implementations
  • How Wifi is implemented in Enterprise (Captive Portal)

If you are a CEO, CIO, CTO, architect, developer, or a system administrator looking to secure your network resources such as Wi-Fi in a BYOD scenario, then this webinar is for you!
