EasyNAC Micro

We are pleased to see NetClarity take advantage of the performance, low power, cost and size advantages of our PowerPC® embedded processor in their EasyNAC Micro appliances for Network Access Control (NAC) of smaller networks and remote offices

NetClarity, Inc., manufacturer of the Award Winning Auditor and EasyNAC appliances today announces the EasyNAC Micro, lightweight, compact, most cost-effective Network Admission Control (NAC) solution on the market.

"Our government and banking customers here in Canada like the fact that this solution actually works without the need for a client or agent, where most other solutions fail to stop the criminal mind from gaining insider access and stealing internal data", said Allen Cowen, President, Datamex Technologies, Inc.

Shipping in February, weighing less than ten ounces and measuring approximately 5" x 4" x 2", the EasyNAC Micro, powered by the AMCC PowerPC®, 405GPr embedded processor provides the same pre-and-post-NAC functionality as the EasyNAC Enterprise appliance, helping reduce the risk of malicious insiders, rogue wireless and infected returning laptops from causing downtime, data leakage or gaining control of critical network resources.

"The biggest problems in the NAC space 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. We've solved all of these problems with this new appliance and couldn't have done it without the help of AMCC and their Power Architecture based embedded processor", said Gary Miliefsky, Founder & Chief Technology Officer of NetClarity, Inc.

This new smaller EasyNAC Micro uses the NetClarity patented model for clientless NAC, deploys in minutes without the need for agent or client software, works with your existing networking and legacy infrastructure, eliminating the need for expensive upgrades.

The powerful EasyNAC Micro is portable, can fit in your pocket, be deployed on any Class C size subnet to help protect up to 256 network assets including all of your laptops, desktops and servers at smaller offices and branch locations of large enterprises or the entire network of a small to medium size business.
