Vernier Networks Records Growth

Vernier Networks doubles quarter-to-quarter edgewall NAC appliance sales

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Vernier Networks today announced that the company experienced extensive growth in the first quarter of the year, doubling sales of its EdgeWall 7000 product line from the previous quarter and expanding the current customer base to 850. The company also added a significant number of new and expanded customer installations, engaged in numerous partnerships, rolled out a new product line, and developed a new partner program to accommodate the high demand for network access control (NAC) products.

“The NAC market is gaining momentum and customers are seeing a need to protect both internal and external threats in the network,” said Chris Christiansen, program vice president for IDC's Security Products and Services. “Vernier’s EdgeWall combines performance, capabilities and flexibility in a single platform to provide network access control for comprehensive security.”

With more than 45 percent quarter-over-quarter growth in new and expanded customer installations, Vernier continued to add marquis names to its customer roster, including MetroNational, a real estate investment, development and management company. Sales into existing customers proved to be quite strong, with many customers extending their Vernier deployments.

“Network access control is essential to organizations that want to achieve a new level of insight and control over the activities on their network, but there are few reliable solutions in the market that can do that,” said Frank Rodriguez, network and information security manager for University of Miami, Miller School of Medicine. “We selected Vernier because the EdgeWall product combines all essential NAC functions in one simple solution.”

Vernier also unveiled a technology partnership program designed to support an extensive ecosystem of integrated and interoperable solutions. Current members include Cavium Networks, Extreme Networks, ManageSoft, PatchLink and Network Intelligence. Vernier’s technology partnership with Network Intelligence was launched in May and enables enterprises to gain deep, network-security insight and capture rich access-control data to ensure network compliance.
