San Jacinto College Uses Mirage's NAC

San Jacinto College seeks to protect from threats introduced by peer-to-peer file sharing

AUSTIN, Texas -- Mirage Networks, developer of full-cycle Network Access Control (NAC) solutions, today announced that San Jacinto College in Houston has implemented Mirage’s NAC technology across three campuses to maintain network uptime and availability in part by curtailing peer-to-peer (P2P) networking applications that can monopolize network resources and leave students vulnerable to malware and litigation from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

“The RIAA is cracking down on illegal file sharing on campuses,” said Will Sydnor, IT manager for San Jacinto College. “By implementing Mirage’s solution, we can configure our sensor to disallow rampant file sharing, and avoid the negative publicity that often comes with that type of activity.”

Mirage Networks helps enterprises defend their networks from zero-day threats and policy violations with patented, full-cycle, agentless network access control technology. The combination of access control, threat prevention, and automated policy enforcement provides an in-depth view of endpoint activity throughout its lifecycle and delivers powerful analysis and network intelligence for network history and usage.

“In addition to their RIAA concerns, San Jacinto College was experiencing an uptick in the number of unmanaged student and faculty laptops accessing their networks as well as an increase in hacking attempts,” said Jason Knight of The Broadleaf Group, Mirage Networks’ partner in the region. “With Mirage’s NAC solution San Jacinto College’s concerns could be solved with a single deployment, and the solution easily scaled to cover all three main campuses.”
