With Mirage, we have the capability to set our own pre-admission policy standards, and once fully deployed we will be in complete control of who gains access to our network. The Mirage solution allows us to accommodate each endpoint on the campus network while still protecting our infrastructure from zero-day threats and policy violations.

"We are faced with the challenge of obtaining device compliance within our employee network," said Kris Pratt, Network Administrator at Cape Fear Community College. "With Mirage, we have the capability to set our own pre-admission policy standards, and once fully deployed we will be in complete control of who gains access to our network. The Mirage solution allows us to accommodate each endpoint on the campus network while still protecting our infrastructure from zero-day threats and policy violations."

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.

"We are pleased to have CFCC join our growing list of education customers using full-cycle NAC protection," said Trent Fitz, vice president of marketing for Mirage Networks. "The dynamic networks of educational institutions prove to be a fit for the Mirage solution, and we will continue our focus on solving the difficult challenges faced by campus IT administrators."

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