Boston, MA (PRWEB) November 14, 2016
Bradford Networks, an innovator in transforming network security through visibility, control and response, has announced a new Educational Licensing Program that is structured to meet the unique needs of educational institutions. Educational facilities face challenges with estimating the number of devices requiring access to their networks —especially with the breadth of devices utilized by the student body and surges in network access demands during events. Network security solutions are typically sold based on the number of devices accessing the network. Bradford Networks is changing the Network Sentry Educational Licensing Program to base licensing on users rather than devices to better meet the needs of K-12 and Higher Education institutions.
The new licensing structure will now allow unlimited device access per user to accommodate the demands and alleviate the uncertainty for educational IT departments, while still maintaining a comprehensive security posture. Network Sentry enables educational institutions to:
- Set baseline security requirements before allowing devices to access the network
- Provides complete end-to-end visibility of every device connected to the network
- Continuously track every network connection made by each device
- Provide role-based network access and restrictions
- Automatically quarantine any devices that behave suspiciously
The new Educational Licensing Program is available to qualified educational institutions in conjunction with Network Sentry Secure Enterprise Premier (SEP) product. Available as a tier-based license, the new program accommodates educational organizations of all sizes. Bradford Networks sells its products through its worldwide network of channel partners, and will provide an upgrade discount to existing educational customers.
“As the recognized leader in network security for the education market, we understand the needs of the market and are responding with unique programs. We are excited to offer this new licensing structure to meet the demands experienced by educational institutions,” stated Everett Andrus, Chief Customer Officer at Bradford Networks. “Network Sentry provides comprehensive endpoint and network visibility, dynamic access control and automated threat response to protect sensitive data, and is a perfect solution for evolving educational infrastructure needs.”
