Buffalo, NY (PRWEB) October 30, 2009
Network Critical, the creator of the leading enterprise access technology solution, has had their Smart Network Access System tested and has been certified by Enterasys as their preferred TAP solution for use with their Enterasys (also known as Dragon) Intrusion Prevention System (IPS).
Enterasys has tested and certified that Network Critical's Smart Network Access System provides a high performance method for providing traffic access to the Enterasys IPS. When mirror ports are not an effective option, Network Critical's TAPs provide a completely passive system for providing network traffic to the IPS. When dealing with critical network segments, it is imperative that network downtime is kept to a minimum, which the Fail-Safe technology in the TAP will guarantee.
"We are excited to be working with Enterasys," said Chris Bihary, Managing Director of the Americas for Network Critical. "The Enterasys IPS is the perfect fit for use with our Smart Network Access System. We provide complete access to the network so the Enterasys IPS can be used as effectively as possible."
"One of the significant challenges enterprises face today is protection of corporate data without sacrificing network performance," said Barry Cioe, Vice President of Product Management at Enterasys Networks. "Network Critical's high performance TAP solution and the Enterasys IPS help meet this challenge."
The Smart Network Access System provides a flexible module and chassis platform for installing permanent enterprise-level access into the datacenter. With its fully configurable, hot-swappable modules, available with either copper or fiber connections, the Smart Network Access System is easily integrated into any data center configuration.
