Bradford Networks, a leading provider of comprehensive network access control (NAC) solutions today announced that it has received a “Positive” rating in Gartner’s “MarketScope for NAC, 2007.”
Gartner evaluated 17 NAC vendors for “MarketScope for NAC, 2007,” by Lawrence Orans, John Pescatore, and Mark Nicolett, published Feb. 1, 2007
NAC Director, announced by Bradford Networks in January, and based on its proven Campus Manger solution, gives enterprises of all sizes a single, comprehensive product line that addresses the three key components of network access control – identity management, endpoint compliance, and usage policy enforcement. NAC Director’s unrivaled seven-point identity match ensures that only authorized users can log into the network and unauthorized users can’t bypass security systems by moving machines or changing the type of connection.
Ideal for use in health care, finance, government, and other public and private organizations, NAC Director’s out-of-band, distributed architecture leverages existing network infrastructures and scales easily from 100 to hundreds of thousands of users and works in multi-vendor, multi-platform environments.
“Hundreds of our customers are already seeing the benefits of Bradford’s NAC solutions for their wired, wireless, and VPN networks,” said Michael Gadoury, Bradford Networks founder and CEO. “We believe Gartner’s Positive rating confirms Bradford’s position in the market and our commitment to providing customers with the most comprehensive and flexible NAC technology.”
