Agent-less NACWall Micro appliance receives network access control (NAC) product innovation award.

NetClarity, Inc. today received the coveted Network Products Guide 2008 Product Innovation Award for the NACwall Micro appliance and is the only NAC vendor to receive such an award. The NACwall Micro is a lightweight, compact, cost-effective Network Access Control (NAC) solution that can be deployed on any Class C subnet in a matter of minutes without the need for agent or client software, works with existing networking and legacy infrastructure, eliminating the need for expensive upgrades. It automatically blocks criminals and malicious insiders from gaining access to mission critical network infrastructure.

"We're very pleased with the traction and recognition that NetClarity is receiving and are a very happy customer," said Frank Ferguson, President, Curriculum Associates, Inc., which recently deployed NetClarity NACwall protection.

"The goal of any product innovation must show a positive change that improves networking," said Rake Narang, editor-in-chief, Network Products Guide. "Innovative products such as NetClarity's patented NACwall Micro appliances are bringing improvements to companies of all sizes who are struggling with controlling access to networks and dealing with returning, potentially infected laptops. In addition, most businesses struggle with the risk of off-hour and unexpected access as well as from 'hot' ethernet ports and wireless routers where 'trust' agents cannot help. The NACwall solution is the first NAC product we've seen that solves all of these problems quickly, easily and cost-effectively."

"Network Products Guide's recognition of NetClarity further validates our NACwalls as the industry's best solution for Network Acccess Control," said Christopher Calisi, President & CEO. "The biggest problems in NAC are (1) inability to protect branch and remote offices, (2) complexity requiring infrastructure upgrades, (3) heavy six digit price tags and (4) inability to protect against the real criminals and malicious insiders who refuse to install trust agents. NACwalls effectively solve these problems."

NetClarity's NACwall appliances are distributed in 35 countries through market leading information security channel partners throughout the globe. To read more about this product innovation, please visit
