Nevis Networks has announced the next-generation of its LANsecure operating software (OS 3.0) for the company’s LANenforcer security appliances. The new operating software capabilities are the result of direct feedback from Nevis’ installed base of customers and the market’s growing dissatisfaction with NAC solutions that deliver only a fraction of LAN security requirements and burden customers with high costs and overly complex deployments.
Key highlights of LANsecure OS 3.0 include:
– Accelerated endpoint posture checks coupled with identity-based access control without any disruption to network performance or end users, regardless of where or how they log in.
– A three-fold increase in user capacity on Nevis LANenforcer appliances. This increase in scalability slashes per user LAN security costs significantly, and establish Nevis as the most cost-effective LAN security solution provider.
– Integration with existing identity management systems to enforce pre-defined, user-based application access policies to dramatically simplify administration.
End User and Administrator Transparency
LANsecure OS 3.0 simplifies the deployment of LANenforcer appliances by providing resilient, single sign on security posture checks for end users. The new OS also provides an extended range of pre-defined policies and “white lists” to protect network-attached devices that enable security administrators to easily and quickly create new access control policies. For example, pre-defined policies for VoIP devices can be applied to all phones on the network, allowing only valid SIP protocol traffic from the endpoint and preventing an attacker from masquerading as the phone.
Tripled Scalability Reduces LAN Security Costs
With the release of the new LANsecure software, LANenforcers can now be positioned anywhere in the network and will provide scalability options to support up to 3,000 concurrent users accessing an organisation’s LAN, representing a 3X improvement over the previous maximum. As a result, deploying a Nevis LANenforcer solution can cut per user LAN security costs far below current industry benchmarks and protect users and assets for less than $15 per user.
