Most organizations need to support seamless access to the network for multiple types of users, such as workers in offices, employees who are traveling, and perhaps even business partners and customers. At the same time, organizations need to protect network resources from potential intruders. A well-designed authentication strategy can help you achieve this complex balance between providing reliable access for users and strong network security for your organization.
