Bradford Networks Sales Up 87 Percent In 2008

The provider of network access control solutions added more than 120 new customers to its roster

Concord, N.H. - January 29, 2009 - In sharp contrast to the overall economy, Bradford Networks today announced that sales of its comprehensive network access control (NAC) solutions for 2008 were up 87 percent over 2007.

New Network Security Customers More than 120 new customers in energy, healthcare, financial services, education and government invested in Bradford's NAC Director and Campus Manager solutions to make their wireless, wired, and VPN networks more secure and efficient. New North American customers include Enbridge Gas Distribution, Health Policy Institute of Ohio, United States Naval Academy, Auburn University, University of Tennessee, and Mount Holyoke College.

Internationally Transfreight Automotive Logistics, Kuwait Finance House, University of the Arts London, University of Limerick, University of Portsmouth, Kings College London, and University of Nottingham Malaysia were among the organizations that selected Bradford's out-of-band appliances.

"Increasing security is a funded and critical initiative for us. It is imperative for our organization to provide a highly secure network," said Mark MacDonald, Project Manager of Technical Services, Enbridge Gas Distribution, Toronto. "By utilizing our existing network switches, we are able to control a broad range of users and their devices province-wide. Bradford's easily adaptable appliances provide advanced security with minimal disruption."

"Organizations continue to be careful about spending, but they must address network security even if they are not making bandwidth or network upgrades," observed Mike Gadoury, Bradford Networks founder and CEO. The new Conficker/Downadup worm, the worst virus in years, is just one example of the relentless threats IT departments must address.

"Increased regulation will impact many industries, further increasing the workload on stretched IT departments," said Gadoury. "Bradford solutions increase automation and integrate with existing systems to significantly reduce administrative loads."

2008 New Product Offerings New products introduced in 2008 included Guest/Contractor Services, which secures and manages the increasing volume of freelancers and contractors flooding into the workforce as companies restructure their businesses. Three additional solutions - User Visibility and Control, Device Profile and Control, and Behavior Monitoring and Control - give IT teams visibility into who and what are on the network, where they are connected and what they are doing. All four solutions provide detailed audit trails for PCI, HIPAA, GLBA, FISMA, SOX, and UK GSi Code of Connection (CoCo) compliance reporting.

Industry Awards During 2008, Bradford continued to garner industry accolades, including: * SC Magazine named Bradford NAC Innovator of the Year for the second straight year * The September 2008 Forrester Wave: Network Access Control, Q3 2008 cited Bradford as a Leader, the top category in the extensive report * Campus Technology named Bradford a 2008 Campus Technology Innovator for Network Security * CRN placed Bradford on its 40 Top Emerging Security Vendors
