ConSentry Secures LANs

ConSentry announced the LANShield Switch, an enterprise-class switch

LONDON -- ConSentry Networks, a leading provider of secure LAN solutions, today announced the LANShield Switch, an enterprise-class switch that integrates the security features needed to secure every user and every port on the LAN. With this announcement, ConSentry is leading the migration of security from an overlay to an embedded technology in the LAN.

By delivering its LANShield silicon architecture and security software initially in the LANShield Controller (formerly the Secure LAN Controller), ConSentry was able to focus on refining the security functions and to prove out the LANShield architecture in a platform that integrates easily into customers existing infrastructure. The Network Admission Control (NAC), visibility, user access control, and threat control capabilities of the LANShield silicon constitute the foundation of the LANShield product family.

The addition of the new CS4048 LANShield Switch enables ConSentry to offer customers the flexibility of deploying pervasive and cost-effective LAN security within a switch, joining the overlay option of the LANShield Controller for applying security to traffic from existing switches.

"ConSentry's LANShield Controller provides us persistent visibility into and control over who gets access to our networks and resources to maintain business continuity," said G.M Choi, vice president infrastructure services of LG-CNS. "Now that we're at a point of upgrading our switching fabric, we see significant threat control and economic advantages by consolidating LAN security and switching into a single platform. Not only will we need fewer devices on our network, but we'll also dramatically streamline our network management."
