“DNAC provided all the features I needed to secure our network, requiring zero network changes at a cost that was significantly less than products that offered the same benefits and capabilities," said Joseph Mays, director of IT, Georgia Legal Services.

InfoExpress, a leading network security solutions provider, announced today that Georgia Legal Services Program® has deployed CyberGatekeeper with Dynamic Network Access Control (DNAC) and CyberGatekeeper Remote to help secure the non-profit’s network. After an exhaustive evaluation process, Georgia Legal selected InfoExpress for its ease of deployment and manageability, proven security, flexibility and price.
Georgia Legal provides legal services and advice to low income individuals and families via 11 remote offices throughout Georgia. The non-profit’s network provides access to email and a host of legal applications for its employees and guests, some of whom connect via VPN. A single, centralized, out-of-band DNAC server manages users on the LAN and WAN, while a single in-line CyberGatekeeper Remote appliance is able to control remote users. Together they provide endpoint visibility, security enforcement and remediation among other vital capabilities to all ingress points into the network.
“Since we are a non-profit, I have to justify every IT purchase I make to our Executive Director (Phyllis Holmen) and the Executive team,” said Joseph Mays, director of IT, Georgia Legal Services. “After looking closely at several NAC products, InfoExpress Dynamic NAC was an easy choice. DNAC provided all the features I needed to secure our network, requiring zero network changes at a cost that was significantly less than products that offered the same benefits and capabilities.”
In addition to protecting networks from the risks of badly configured computers and rogue endpoints, DNAC ensures strict security policy compliance and provides the added benefit of inventory analysis. Mays continued, “We were surprised to find that more than 60 percent of our computers were out of compliance. After we used DNAC to audit the endpoints on our network, we were able to remediate out of compliance machines while in monitor only mode. This ensured complete compliance before we turned on enforcement and started to quarantine endpoints for serious policy violations.”
Georgia Legal deployed the DNAC solution on its own with remote support from InfoExpress. “The technical support team was extremely responsive and helpful throughout the deployment process,” said Mays. “The other vendors we looked at required an on-site engineer to deploy their product and reconfigure our network. We were also looking at 2-3 days of training to use it – all at an additional cost to us. With DNAC and CyberGatekeeper Remote, on-site deployment and training services are optional. We were able to centrally deploy the solution without having to travel to any of our remote offices. Once we had the Policy Servers in place and the policies created, it was literally as simple as putting the CyberGatekeeper Agent onto a couple of endpoints on each subnet and pushing the policy out to the two policy servers.”
“InfoExpress’ out-of-band NAC solutions are ideal for organizations with many distributed networks,” said Stacey Lum, CEO of InfoExpress. “Our solutions can be easily deployed and remotely managed without network changes. This can save hundreds of thousands of dollars for large organizations and tens of thousands for mid-sized ones.”
