Innovative and disruptive technologies such as NetClarity's NACwall technology are bringing improvements in protecting networks in a dramatically easier, more cost effective way

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 1, 2010

NetClarity, Inc., the manufacturer of the award winning NACwall technology, used worldwide for Intrusion Prevention, Vulnerability Management and Network Access Control (NAC), and past winner of the coveted Top Three Innovators at RSA Conference Award (2007), today announced that after three years of significant advanced research, it has solved one of the biggest problems in networking caused by the HP and Cisco breakup.

"NACwall technology has achieved another major security milestone for all Enterprises who care about network access controls. I've long been a proponent of NetClarity's agent-less NAC technology. Now, with the new NACwall v7.1, an administrator can implement 'plug-and-play' policies for alerting, auditing, quarantining and blocking access across multi-vendor switches within the same network fabric. The ability to manage switches agnostically is exactly what the Enterprise ordered," said Winn Schwartau, Information Security Luminary, Voted one of the Top 5 Security Thinkers for 2009 by SC Magazine, Chairman, Mobile Application Development Partners, LLC.

"In this model, HP and Cisco switches can actually work together - old and new - without any requirement for single-vendor point solutions or forced upgrades to the flawed and highly exploited 802.1x protocol. There isn't a single network where mixes of equipment like HP and Cisco's need to live and work together in harmony. We make it happen in milliseconds, transparently through our NAC solution for better, stronger, easier to deploy intrusion defense," said Gary S. Miliefsky, President & Chief Technology Officer for NetClarity, Inc.

"Unless you are licensing and embedding NACwall technology within your product platforms you're selling a solution that doesn't work. You're trying to force customers to implement single switch solutions or upgrade all of your old switches to Cisco or HP exclusively, etc. Enterprises cannot afford these massive infrastructure upgrades and should not be misguided. NetClarity's patented technology solves so many problems created by the warring infrastructure vendors, their NACwall is a network must have," said Allan Cowen, Managing Director of Datamex Technologies Inc, the North American distributor of NACwalls.

NetClarity's NACwall appliances help corporations harden their networks against malicious attacks. NACwalls are agent-less solutions - there is absolutely no need to deploy agents on the assets you want to protect. NACwalls deploy within minutes and protect for years. Gain inside out intrusion prevention, where you need it the most. 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 eleven other published and pending patent applications.

"Innovative and disruptive technologies such as NetClarity's NACwall technology are bringing improvements in protecting networks in a dramatically easier, more cost effective way" says Rake Narang, editor-in-chief of Info Security Products Guide, who has put NetClarity up for the Global Product Excellence Award as the Most Innovative NAC technology of 2010.
