Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) June 22, 2006
Vernier Networks® , the leading provider of Network Access Control (NAC) products designed to ensure network endpoint compliance, and Network Intelligence ™ Corp. recently announced a partnership that will enable enterprises to gain deep network security insight and capture rich access control data to ensure network compliance. Through this partnership, Vernier’s award-winning EdgeWall Network Access Control products and centralized Control Server will provide its detailed Network Access Control event data to Network Intelligence’s enVision™, creating an unprecedented level of event correlation, network trend analysis, and customizable compliance reporting.
“By incorporating the rich event data that Vernier’s Network Access Control solution can provide, Network Intelligence can offer customers more detailed reporting and analysis of user behavior and the compliance state of endpoint systems on the network,” said Jim Melvin, executive vice president for marketing and business development at Network Intelligence. “This partnership will create a best-of-breed solution for powerful security information and event reporting, giving enterprises great insight into their networks’ compliance and security postures.”
In addition to standard network and security device data, Vernier’s Network Access Control solution delivers rich user, threat and endpoint data that includes the compliance state of endpoint devices on the network. Due to the extensive range of event data that the Vernier EdgeWall can deliver, Network Intelligence’s security information and event management system can create industry-standard compliance reports from the Vernier event data alone. As a result, customers can seamlessly integrate both solutions in their network and significantly reduce the number of applications, networking devices and security point products involved in the generation of compliance reports.
Vernier’s EdgeWall Network Access Control products authenticate, validate and authorize compliant endpoints, quarantine and remediate infected devices, and continuously inspect traffic for policy compliance. They can also perform wire-speed intrusion detection and prevention on all traffic to ensure that endpoint compliance devices can instantly be quarantined and remediated should they show signs of inappropriate use of the network or infection from worms, viruses and spyware. The EdgeWall family of products is designed to protect wired, wireless, remote access and guest access networks.
Network Intelligence’s enVision is the only security information/event management (SIEM) solution available today that is capable of collecting, analyzing, reporting on and storing all of a company’s network event data in real time. The Company’s LogSmart® Internet Protocol Database (IPDB) efficiently collects and protects all event data from any IP device without filtering or agents. By capturing all the data, customers have the ability to track, detect and mitigate known and unknown vulnerabilities from their enterprise networks. Providing auditors with this level of protection and insight into the network enables businesses to comply with Sarbanes-Oxley, PCI, HIPAA, GLBA and all other industry and federal regulations.
"It is crucial for enterprise customers to be able to quickly gather, analyze and report on the secure networking data across their network – and to date, that has not always been easy to do," said Rod Murchison, vice president of marketing at Vernier Networks. "By incorporating Vernier’s EdgeWall data with Network Intelligence's market leading SIEM product, we are creating the strongest analysis and compliance reporting solution geared towards Network Access Control (NAC) deployments.”
To further solidify the technology partnership, Vernier Networks will be a sponsor at Network Intelligence’s second annual End-User Conference, “Start Your Own Revolution,” from May 9-11 in Boston. More information can be found at http://www.network-intelligence.com/enduserconf .
