We repeatedly hear stories of companies choosing a NAC solution and never fully deploying it because of complexity. A large part of our success has come from addressing this challenge. This is just another example of Mirage delivering solutions that genuinely benefit customers.

With the new platform, Mirage is targeting organizations that were previously unable to realize the benefits of NAC because of deployment complexities. The new platform offers all components of a full-cycle NAC solution in a single, low-cost appliance. The virtually inline appliance can be deployed in any network in less than an hour. Within minutes, the appliance discovers and assesses the risk of every endpoint on the network.

Mirage's innovation is widely recognized in the industry. The company was recently awarded the 2008 Global Award for Best Entrepreneurial Company by Frost & Sullivan, which stated, "Mirage Networks creates a virtual inline NAC appliance that offers the benefits of both inline and out-of-band NAC without the disadvantages. This zero-day threat prevention capability combined with automated policy enforcement and completely agentless assessment gives Mirage a distinctive NAC solution. Mirage Networks Endpoint Control is a unique approach to NAC and Mirage has patents pending to protect this solution."

"Mirage Networks continues to build on its leadership position of offering the easiest NAC solution to deploy," said David Thomas, vice president of products for Mirage Networks. "We repeatedly hear stories of companies choosing a NAC solution and never fully deploying it because of complexity. A large part of our success has come from addressing this challenge. This is just another example of Mirage delivering solutions that genuinely benefit customers."

Mirage's NAC solution enables maximum network performance by controlling network access, isolating non-compliant and threatening endpoints, and providing self-remediation capabilities. Mirage's network-based solution is the easiest NAC solution to deploy, as it requires no agent software, deploys virtually inline, and works in any network environment.

Mirage solutions are made available through Authorized ChannelFirst Partners and can also be delivered as a managed service.
