Contextual Intelligence

Correlating the Who, What, Where, and When

Organizations are faced with the daunting task of correlating mobile device information and user identity (over time and across their networks) for regulatory compliance; security forensics; and enabling identity-based firewall, web content and bandwidth management policies.

SafeConnect provides the ability to not only automate the enforcement of security and compliance policies, but also gathers a wealth of context-aware device information so you can make informed and intelligent decisions about your network.

Impulse’s Contextual Intelligence™ technology delivers real-time device information that correlates identity/role, device type, and location (along with other attributes such as ownership and compliance status) over time to power its SafeConnect solution.

Information gleaned “in context” regarding mobile devices on the network (both real time and historically) allow IT managers to make better decisions on network capacity, risk mitigation, and forensic analysis required for addressing compliance. Accessing real-time contextual information also reduces the number and length of help desk calls by improving the end user experience.

Benefits of Contextual Intelligence

SafeConnect has a unique network vantage point, engaging users and devices as they interact across various technologies. Impulse offers monitoring and a reporting dashboard that allows the organization critical insight into users, devices, usage and performance. Correlating that information provides a wealth of benefits:

  • Provide a better user experience resulting in Single-Sign-On and persistence across the network
  • Create more flexible risk mitigation policies
  • Ability to implement identity-based data and bandwidth policies
  • Enhanced network capacity planning
  • Enforce user-based security access policies
  • Reduce the number and length of help desk calls
  • Make more timely security decisions
