MILPITAS, Calif. -- ConSentry Networks, a leading provider of secure LAN solutions, announced today that Bosley has selected the ConSentry LANShield platform to secure network access across more than 80 locations. Bosley relies on the ConSentry solution to provide two critical security features: identity-based control to limit access to network resources and malware detection to identify infected user machines.
Bosley, a leader in medical hair restoration, has staff that frequently move among the company's headquarters in Beverly Hills, California, 16 additional surgical locations, and 65 consultation offices across the country. The company also routinely hosts IT contractors, financial auditors, and other guests.
"Before ConSentry, our network was wide open, so anyone who got on the LAN could get to any server," said Sohail Abdali, director of IT at Bosley. The company uses ConSentry's identity-based control to limit that access, so IT contractors reach only the devices they're onsite to service, and auditors can reach only selected financial resources. The ConSentry system learns each user's role during authentication and applies the appropriate access limitations.
