NetClarity's NACwall provides the reporting I need to show due care and due diligence for Bank IT security and compliance
New York City, NY (PRWEB) September 17, 2008
NetClarity Inc., manufacturer of the Award Winning network security appliances announces today the new release, version 6.5, of the entire NACwall appliances line. These appliances will be on display today and tomorrow during Interop Expo hours at Avocent's (NASDAQ: AVCT) booth #1034 along with tightly integrated and award winning DSView network management console.
"NetClarity's NACwall provides the reporting I need to show due care and due diligence for Bank IT security and compliance," said Ron Catrone SVP and CIO of Farmington Savings Bank (FSB).
"We're pleased to have helped deliver and deploy the NetClarity NACwall appliance to FSB, as NetClarity's trusted partner in the Connecticut region. When we deliver one of these appliances to customers, we tell them you can 'set it and forget it.' It's really that easy to deploy and yet powerful enough to have stopped the kind of breaches and data theft we are seeing at major retailers", said Jon P. Rondeau, CEO of New Wave Industries.
NACwalls are non-inline, non-invasive, plug-and-play Network Access Control (NAC) appliances which keep intruders off networks from behind firewalls on wired and wireless networks. They can scan corporate networks for trusted devices that may contain exposures or vulnerabilities exploited by hackers that firewalls and wireless encryption can't defend against. NACwalls also alert customers and block against malicious and un-trusted network access at all points on the network without the need to deploy any software agents.
New and Improved Features in NACwall v6.5 Include:
- Non-inline Agentless NAC for up to 8 Physical Subnets in a single 1U appliance (Enterprise Model only)
- Enhanced Alerting and Blocking Functionality in less than 10 miliseconds
- Improved Correlation and Reporting of Vulnerabilities (CVE®s) with Deeper National Vulnerability Database (NVD) Integration
- Automatic Vulnerability Checking on Trusted Assets (such as returning Laptops)
- Automatic Blocking Functionality against Rogue wireless devices, PDAs and Unauthorized Laptops
- Enhanced MAC and IP Spoof Protection
- Alerting and Protection for VoIP Phones and VoIP Gateways
According to Information Week this month, "Those hardy souls evaluating NAC face a spotty track record, a long implementation cycle, and an eye-popping price tag."
"We're about to change that with our new line of plug-and-play NACwall appliances. We have a flawless track record with trusted partners selling our appliances across the globe, an almost instantaneous implementation cycle and an eye-opening low price - about 1/10th that of Cisco and Symantec with no infrastructure upgrades necessary - this is the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) with the highest return on investment (ROI) in the industry for anyone considering deploying NAC.", said Dror Shalita, VP International Channels.
NetClarity's NACwall appliances are protected under US Patent Number 7346922, US Pat. 11/338,870, US Pat. 10898900, US Pat. 11622460, US Pat. 11769971 as well as seven other published and pending patent applications.
