The unpredictable environments of college campuses present unique challenges to the IT staffs and their budgets. Mirage's full-cycle NAC solution was designed for this exact purpose – to account for all the network craziness and still ensure compliance and network uptime.

"Our students bring all kinds of devices to our campus daily and gain access to our wired and wireless networks," said Keith Urry, Senior Network and ICT Security Officer at North Lindsey College. "Mirage's policy enforcement allows every authorized endpoint onto the network, but continuously monitors them to ensure they follow pre-set user guidelines. This gives students the freedom to access the network as needed, and also gives our IT administrators the peace of mind that there will be no network disruptions due to non-compliant endpoints."

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 North Lindsey College join our list of education customers around the globe," said Peter Ruijters, vice president of EMEA and India for Mirage Networks. "The unpredictable environments of college campuses present unique challenges to the IT staffs and their budgets. Mirage's full-cycle NAC solution was designed for this exact purpose – to account for all the network craziness and still ensure compliance and network uptime."

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