It’s no secret: The scale and pace of business change today is challenging all of us to do more -- better, faster and with ever greater efficiency. Customers are demanding more and wanting it now. Market expectations for product and process innovation are growing. Mergers and acquisitions in many industries are at or near all-time highs. Complex global supply chains and highly distributed organizations are the norm.
Guests, contractors, vendors, business partners, and other temporary users require and expect certain level of network access within organizations that they visit. Corporate network access has been typically open; internal LAN connections have seldom required authentication. Today however, regulatory and other security concerns demand that organizations adopt a more secure posture towards these short-term users.

IT is expected to deliver business results with a measurable contribution to the organization's bottom line.
