Texas School Expands NAC Deployment

Texas school district expands Mirage NAC deployment

AUSTIN, Texas -- Mirage Networks, developer of full-cycle Network Access Control (NAC) solutions, today announced Round Rock Independent School District (RRISD) has expanded its deployment of Mirage NAC technology, adding 10 new appliances and a Mirage Management Server.

RRISD’s implementation of the Mirage Management Server enables their IT managers to weave all their Mirage NAC appliances into a security fabric, creating a convenient centralized point for network visibility, event reporting, and maintenance. Mirage deployed seamlessly with RRISD’s existing Cisco network architecture, requiring no switch upgrade. “We initially considered Cisco’s NAC offering, but decided against it when our research uncovered how complicated the deployment would be,” said Dan Scott, senior systems engineer for RRISD. “The Mirage NAC solution is effective and easy to deploy, and after reviewing our options it was the clear winner for us. The product has been rock solid from day one. In fact, the Sasser virus hit us during the install. Without Mirage, our network would have come to a grinding halt.”

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.

“Many of the articles in technology trade magazines today talk about how companies are touting ‘new’ ways to help secure networks. It’s obvious to me that Mirage has been doing this for years and has been a great benefit here at Round Rock I.S.D.” said Scott.
