Barrier1 Introduces Clientless NACComplete NAC brings in line real-time inspection and protection beyond the client component
MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Barrier1, a fast growing "Intelligent
Threat Management System (TM)," announces the release of Complete NAC (network
Complete NAC was developed to solve the existing problems faced with traditional
NAC solutions. Many traditional NAC solutions may not work in existing
infrastructures, they may work independently from the rest of the network and
security components, are expensive, and difficult to install and maintain. Jason
McDonald, Barrier1 NAC Architect, states, "Barrier1 design goals were set out to
change the landscape of NAC by bringing automation, ease of use, and inclusion
of the endpoint as part of the Intelligent Threat Network Architecture (TM)."
Barrier1 Complete NAC solves these problems. The innovative design brings
automation without wholesale network changes to NAC functions such as
Remediation, Enhanced Security, Compliancy, Monitoring, and Alerting. In
addition, end points are now part of the "Intelligent Threat Management (TM)"
that Barrier1 has pioneered.
All IP devices that connect into a network become part of that network. As
mobility has become part of the network landscape, it brings on an entirely new
entrance point into existing networks. Security measures stayed the same,
independent. Even thought personal firewalls and anti virus components were
placed on laptops, cyber criminals have continued to find innovative ways to
compromise these protections. Barrier1 Complete NAC brings in line real time
inspection and protection beyond the client component.
Five years ago, Barrier1 (TM) launched a platform that inspects ALL 7 OSI layers
in near real time from any IP devices, using Intelligence. While traditional
approaches were concerned with just the edge or gateway, Barrier1 was inspecting
all IP devices, and using its patent-pending Intelligent "AARE Engine" to go
beyond list-based methods. Barrier1 Complete NAC closes another possible entry
point into enterprise networks. In today's world, manufacturers should be able
to stop the known attacks; it is the unknown, mutated, or never-before-seen that
is difficult. Barrier1 has a five-year history of accurately identifying and
blocking newly launched attacks that everyone else misses.
