Andover, Mass. "June 29, 2009 "Enterasys, the network infrastructure and security division of Siemens Enterprise Communications Group, today announced that it has grown its year-over-year revenues for the Enterasys Network Access Control (NAC) solution by 317%. The increased demand for Enterasys NAC signifies that companies worldwide are investing in the security delivered by NAC technology, but they are also in need of a cost-effective, easily manageable solution for enterprise users, guests and contractors.

"With Enterasys NAC, we get strong security and granular control over who has access, when and from where," said Tom Domenico, director of IT Operations at Massport, the owner and operator of Boston Logan Airport. "We selected Enterasys NAC for this granular visibility and control, and have written policies to permit, deny, prioritize, rate-limit, tag, re-direct and audit network traffic based on user identity, time, location and device type."

Enterasys saw its NAC customer base double over the last year, in an economy where overall IT spending took a global downturn. The Enterasys open-architecture approach to NAC enables it to work in multi-vendor infrastructures, allowing enterprise users to leverage their existing networking investments. While other vendors require comprehensive system upgrades to implement NAC, the Enterasys NAC solution works with third-party switches, routers and wireless access points, multiple assessment servers, authentication servers and security software agents—giving users the freedom to implement a more cost-effective system without sacrificing security.

"In higher education, we are, more than ever, aware of the consequences of inadvertently releasing restricted information regarding both students and staff," said James Pardonek, senior network administrator at Purdue University Calumet. "Enterasys NAC is an integral component of our security strategy, enabling us to proactively manage any guest, device, or trusted user who connects to our network, and what they are authorized to do once connected. Enterasys NAC helps Purdue University Calumet address our compliance requirements with continual enforcement of our network usage and security policies, any time the end system is connected to our network."

Enterasys NAC 3.2, available within 30 days from authorized Enterasys distributors and value added resellers worldwide, provides industry-leading functionality and includes extensive configuration options for fine grained identity-based control, tighter security, enhanced LDAP integration, new guest/system registration functionality, and IT workflow integration.
