SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)-- Mar 01, 2010 PFU Systems, Inc., the North American subsidiary of PFU Limited, a Fujitsu company, today announced the availability of the iNetSec Inspection Center V6.0 for VMware ("iNetSec"), an affordable software-based Network Access Control (NAC) solution. Designed for customers who have invested in virtual environments, iNetSec supports VMware immediately out-of-the-box, which simplifies deployment and ensures the protection of corporate and government networks, data and assets; all while supporting compliance needs. This secure NAC solution will be showcased at PFU Systems' booth (#240) during the RSA Conference, March 1-5, at the Moscone Center.

Leading NAC Solutions

iNetSec keeps networks secure from external threats and internal breaches, such as viruses and P2P software, by enforcing security measures on desktops and laptops. iNetSec is deployed virtually over VMware, making it highly reliable, scalable and simple to implement without the need to change existing network designs or purchase new hardware. Once implemented, iNetSec is easy to maintain, featuring automated security policy settings, making it free of human error and requiring minimal administrative resources and costs.

Through dictionary based inspection, iNetSec provides high quality policy testing updates daily and, by so doing, ensures that network security is up to date.

"Customers now can virtually deploy iNetSec Inspection Center V6.0 for VMware and have peace-of-mind knowing their networks are completely safe without having to deal with complex deployments. In the midst of a worldwide recession where many have been forced to re-evaluate their IT budgets, the cost and time savings iNetSec delivers are invaluable benefits."
