Impulse Point Announces Safe Connect 5.0 NAC Solution
The new version of its network access control (NAC) solution offers enhanced endpoint profiling device recognition.
In a press release issued by the company on its website, Impulse announced the latest version of its main product, Safe Connect 5.0. Originally developed for the higher education market, Safe Connect enables organizations to more easily manage P2P file sharing, end user authentication, anti-virus, anti-spyware, guest management and custom policies. Because higher education environments are more difficult to safeguard than most corporate environments, Safe Connect 5.0 features enhanced endpoint profiling device recognition, and improved guest access capabilities which address the evolving challenges of computing within large organizations.
"As the 'Consumerization of IT' takes hold, corporate environments are starting to more closely resemble higher education campuses as IT contends with the growing influx of diverse, unmanaged wireless devices on corporate networks. Safe Connect is uniquely positioned to deliver a more secure, reliable, and predictable IT infrastructure that is easy and cost-effective to deploy and maintain. 'As with past disruptive technology trends, higher education is on the leading edge with students connecting the newest devices to campus networks,' said Max Garcia, vice president of product development at Impulse Point. 'Based on the market that we serve, we are committed to rapidly supporting the diversity of endpoint devices required to keep pace with the Consumerization of IT computing model.' 'Network Access Control services such as Safe Connect are critical for organizations as they are exposed to the security implications of mobile devices and as network security compliance becomes more business critical,' said Robert Fenstermacher, head of education marketing, Aruba Networks."
