When many first hear about the capabilities of EasyNAC they tend to think, 'At that price, there has to be a catch.' To have such an established name as Tolly certifying our features add to the mounting evidence that it really isn't too good to be true

NetClarity, leading provider of NACwall™ (network access control wall) appliances, today announced The Tolly Group, a leading provider of third-party IT product, component and services validation, has tested and certified the features of the Enterprise and SMB line of appliances including the EasyNAC Enterprise, EasyNAC Branch and Endpoint Defender products.

"When many first hear about the capabilities of EasyNAC they tend to think, 'At that price, there has to be a catch.' To have such an established name as Tolly certifying our features add to the mounting evidence that it really isn't too good to be true," says Gary Miliefsky, founder and chief technology officer of NetClarity.

The EasyNAC Enterprise protects up to 2048 trusted network assets and has an average deployment cost of less than $19,995. Because of the unique EasyNAC technology embedded in these NACwall™ appliances, customers need not worry about the system wide upgrades required by previous generation NAC solutions. Such "forklift upgrades" can cause installation costs to swell in excess of 20 times that of EasyNAC line.

"Tolly Group engineers examined NetClarity's EasyNAC Enterprise and EasyNAC Branch vulnerability management appliances and Endpoint Defender security solution and determined that it delivers effective security through proactively discovering and managing CVEs, and providing network admission control, remediation workflow and regulatory compliance audit tools in an easy to deploy and easy to manage solution," states The Tolly Group report.

Tolly Group engineers tested and certified seven main features of the NetClarity EasyNAC products:

  •     Asset discovery and classification
  •     Asset inventory monitoring and alerts
  •     "On demand" and "scheduled asset audits across multiple IP subnetworks
  •     Regulatory compliance reports (in PDF, CSV, XML, HTML, SYSLOG formats)
  •     Dynamic endpoint quarantine using firewall and smart switch integration (when using supported firewall/smart switch hardware)
  •     Automatic Vulnerability Signatures and/or Software Updates
  •     PCI Security Standards Council-approved scanning equipment

In addition, Tolly also tested NetClarity's Endpoint Defender against three features:

  •     Automatic Vulnerability Signatures and/or Software Updates
  •     Real-time protection for malware, Trojans, viruses etc.

Real-time "anomaly-based" detection and protection against zero-day attacks

In February, NetClarity added the newest, smallest member of the EasyNAC family, the EasyNAC Micro, a hand-held appliance that can give a small 10-workstation office a state of the art NACwall solution for less than $1,000.

A one-page summary of The Tolly Group report has been published in a special March 10th issue of NetworkWorld and is also available electronically at http://www.netclarity.net/NetClarity-TollyBenchmark-Summary-2008.pdf.

"With an ever expanding wave of data laundering cyber crime with security breaches happening across the world, NetClarity has developed an innovative suite of NACwall products that help solve these difficult problems in a proactive way," said Kevin Tolly, President & CEO of The Tolly Group.
