The company also announced that Foreseeson has joined Vernier’s Vantage program as a distributor in Canada, extending Vernier’s reach to large Canadian organizations.

“As customer interest in NAC solutions continues to boom, we are pleased to be able to bring Vernier’s Network Access Control solutions to our Canadian customers,” said Brian Cherrin, general manager, distribution division of Foreseeson. “After evaluating Vernier’s EdgeWall, we were impressed with its ability to scan for policy compliance, continually inspect endpoint traffic and quarantine malicious and out-of-compliance users.
