UVA-Wise Adds Network Access Control

Mirage Networks announced the University of Virginia's College at Wise, Va., has chosen Mirage Endpoint Control

AUSTIN, Texas -- Mirage Networks®, Inc., developer of patented Network Access Control (NAC) technology, announced today the University of Virginia’s College at Wise (UVa-Wise) has chosen Mirage Endpoint Control to protect its residence halls’ network from threats and policy violations which can negatively impact operational cost and connectivity.

“We focused on monitoring our network to catch threats before they could shut us down,” said Grant Baker, network security specialist for UVa-Wise. “Mirage Networks’ Endpoint Control solution allowed us to not only monitor network traffic, but also enforce security policies.”

The Mirage Endpoint Control solution uses a robust and dynamic rule set to examine every packet sent across a protected network. Customers can customize the rule set to reflect each institution’s unique network policy. When Mirage Endpoint Control sniffs out threatening or aberrant behavior on the network, it can surgically isolate the offending device, either quarantining it completely or restricting it to granular access based on the device, user, or infraction.

"Mirage continues to lead the way in NAC deployments ,” said Greg Stock, president and CEO, Mirage Networks. “Nowhere is this more evident than in the education market, where customers such as UVa-Wise turn to Mirage for an effective NAC solution that is easy to deploy and manage. We’re excited to add UVa-Wise to our distinguished list of higher education customers.”
