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're not providing nice-to-have network security," said Trent Fitz, vice president of marketing for Mirage Networks. "Mirage's NAC solution is helping customers protect the productivity of mission critical networks and the City of Overland Park is leveraging NAC innovations to stay ahead of today's network threats and keep the city's emergency services running without interruption.
