Every single employee will use their device to connect to the internet. When that happens, the data passes through Wandera’s gateway before reaching the intended destination. The gateway operates in the pathway of the data flowing into and out of every device, for cellular connections like 4G, and also when devices are connected to WiFi.
It does this through intelligent vectoring techniques, meaning no need for VPNs and all data remains encrypted – with no latency or impact upon battery performance.
IT admins can then get full visibility of which devices are accessing which services, where they are, and when they’re being used. This means they can see that an optionally-anonymized employee is using 40MB on Skype while roaming in Egypt, but not who they’re speaking to or what’s being shared.
This gateway also means that connections can be blocked as they happen – preventing access to adult content, stopping a phishing attack or repelling a malware download before it even reaches the device.
All the data that passes through the gateway is analyzed by Wandera’s intelligence engine, MI:RIAM. Using a variety of machine learning technologies, MI:RIAM detects unusual activity and spots undiscovered attacks as they emerge.
