Mirage's full-cycle NAC capabilities assure a level of network availability that anti-virus and anti-spyware solutions alone can't promise.

"Like any business, we rely on our corporate network to keep our operations running smoothly," said David Cohen, director of information technology for Waterfront Toronto. "Mirage fit our needs perfectly by giving us an agentless, hardware agnostic, behavior-based solution that stops zero-day threats and prevents unauthorized endpoint behavior."

Access 2 Networks, a Canadian-based partner of Mirage, is assisting Waterfront Toronto in the initial deployment of the solution. "Mirage's NAC solution is a natural fit for organizations that have concerns about today's complex threat environment and its impact on operations," said Frank Rondinone, President of Access 2 Networks. "Mirage's full-cycle NAC capabilities assure a level of network availability that anti-virus and anti-spyware solutions alone can't promise."

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 requires no agent software, deploys virtually inline, and works in any network environment.

"Like many of our customers, Waterfront Toronto's primary concern is ensuring network availability to support its business," said Trent Fitz, vice president of marketing for Mirage Networks. "Mirage's NAC solution has set the standard for enabling organizations to get the most out of their networks, and Waterfront Toronto's selection of Mirage is further validation of that."

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