ATLANTA -- Stonesoft, an innovative provider of integrated network security and resilient connectivity solutions, announced today the formation of a joint marketing partnership with Bradford Networks, a recognized leader in Network Access Control (NAC).
The partnership enables network administrators to quickly identify and enforce network usage policy violations down to the individual user and machine levels. The combination of solutions from Stonesoft and Bradford provide organizations with the most comprehensive approach to layered security available on the market today.
Today's organizations support an escalating number of devices connected to the network, whether it's the laptops and handhelds from the company's own employees or the devices from outside consultants and contractors. The combination of StoneGate's Secure Connectivity solutions and Bradford's NAC Director reduces the security risks inadvertently brought into the network. Additionally, the combined solutions help organizations provide contractors and consultants with selective access to systems versus access to the whole network, maintaining integrity of the corporate data.
"Bradford's NAC Director provides enterprises of all sizes a single, comprehensive product that addresses the three key components of network access control: identity management, endpoint compliance, and usage policy enforcement to ensure end-user security for individuals regardless of where or how they connect to the network," said Mike Gadoury, Bradford Networks founder and CEO. "The combination of Bradford's NAC Director and Stonesoft's StoneGate Secure Connectivity solutions ensures that the network is secure without interfering with user productivity."
