Well if the CEO comes in and says I want the network to be open to these devices then fine, they think the threat is acceptable and it is their call. To believe that these devices are not a threat is naive, now I agree that there are technologies out there which can be used to secure these devices on the network, including ones that would audit the device and ensure proper policy before allowing access. However, this is assuming that the employees would want this software to run on their hardware. Inside restrictions, I have no problems allowing them to use a corporate network I am responsible for, it is unrestricted access I have issues with. As I have said in the past the other option is to just run a secondary network for those devices which are not subject to corporate policy. This is easy as the technology already exists to isolate those clients failing policy review. Any devices which use the network and fail this review could be subject to a limited access policy.
