In today’s digital world, almost everything we do is online. We talk to our friends online, we do our work online, and we shop online. That being said, things are going even further out, meaning that everything is wireless. Not only are we on the internet, but we’re on the internet on our couches instead of at a desktop.

Because of this shift to wireless systems, the bandwidth requirements have gone up significantly. With that, the enterprise network equipment market is expected to reach $30.6 billion by the year 2020. This just goes to show how much traffic is on the wireless network today.

With everything being wireless, we need more protection. Cisco Meraki specialists recognized this need, and they did something about it. Cisco Security Connector, a system “designed to give enterprises the deepest visibility and control over network activity,” is now available in the App Store for iOS devices.

Although Apple has designed their devices to be extra secure from the start, pairing Meraki support with the Security Connector app will allow customers to see and control their network activity. This will allow them to gain insight on the traffic brought by their users.

What does this mean for enterprises that use iOS devices? This Meraki equipment will allow two major accessibility that may not have been possible before. The first is visibility. Mobile users on enterprise owned networks are monitored much more closely now with this app. This will largely help in investigations because the information can be retrieved rapidly. The app can help find out what happened, who it happened to, and assess the possible risk associated with an incident.

The second thing that will change with the new security app created by Cisco Meraki experts is control. When a public internet network is used, risk is always present. There are various devices and users that can access the network, potentially causing harm. However, Cisco Meraki consultants assure that iOS devices are very well protected on a corporate network, public Wi-Fi, or cellular networks.

Cisco Meraki specialists were truly looking out for all the wireless users out there when they decided to release this security program on the App store. The wireless world as we know it just got a little safer.
