Avenda Systems’ Intelligent Access Solution Secures Personal Device Use Within Any Organization

eTIPS platform allows IT groups to create policies that tie together a user's identity and role to a device type and status

Santa Clara, Calif. – Dec. 14, 2010 – Avenda Systems, the innovation leader in network access security, today announced new features within its eTIPS platform that enable customers to efficiently allow or deny the use of personal devices for workplace applications. In a recent Gartner report titled “Gartner’s Top Predictions for IT Organizations and Users, 2011 and Beyond: IT’s Growing Transparency,” Gartner predicted that by 2014, 90 percent of organizations will support corporate applications on personal devices.

As the use of tablets such as the iPad and Smartphones increases, organizations have had to address wireless bandwidth issues, security concerns related to the use of approved and non-approved devices, and internal compliance issues. Avenda’s eTIPS platform allows IT groups to easily create policies that tie together a user’s identity and role to a device type and status, which can include IT defined device-based attributes. Avenda’s solution gives customers greater visibility and control over who is allowed to use a personal device at work and what portions of the network they can access.

“The ability to quickly adapt the network to support these new devices is a key security advantage in the financial industry, as regulations and auditing are a large part of the business,” said Henry Mayorga, Manager of Network Technology at Baron Capital Management in New York City. “The fact that Avenda’s solution works well with our Cisco infrastructure, was easy to deploy, and is reasonably priced makes it ideal for any industry.”

Avenda’s eTIPS solution has successfully been managing policies for the use of laptop and desktop devices in corporate wireless and wired networks over the years. Based on industry demand, the company continues to add new functionality to securely manage the growing use of new personal devices. Comprehensive deployment and reporting tools also offer the ability to streamline day-to-day IT activities, while also minimizing user and help desk interaction.

Avenda’s deployment and security benefits include:

- Support for Windows, Mac OS X, Mac iOS, Android and Linux devices

- Ability to fingerprint operating system characteristics for use within policies

- Real-time device transaction views and compliance reporting

“Creative new applications for the iPad and other emerging tablet PCs are driving enterprise requirements to support these new devices regardless of who owns them,” said Krishna Prabhakar, CEO of Avenda Systems. “Customers are proactively looking to securely support personal devices, as the productivity benefits and the fast adoption by users are hard to ignore.”
