MILPITAS, Calif. -- ConSentry Networks, a leading provider of secure LAN solutions, announced today that Canaras Capital Management, LLC, has purchased ConSentry's LANShield Switch to safeguard data on its corporate LAN. Canaras, an alternative asset manager specializing in credit markets, is using the ConSentry device in its headquarters office in New York City.
"As a highly regulated asset management consultancy, Canaras must prove that every user and every port are secured on our network," said Raffi Jamgotchian, chief information officer, Canaras Capital Management. "After reviewing solutions from leading networking and security vendors, we found that we would need four different products to deploy the same security that the ConSentry LANShield Switch offers in a single platform. It also gives me very granular visibility -- down to the user and application levels. We're initially using ConSentry to secure guest admission to the network and to prevent infections from spreading, but we anticipate implementing identity-based controls in the future."
