StillSecure Simplifies Compliance With New Release of Safe Access NAC Solution

SUPERIOR, CO--(Marketwire - April 19, 2010) -  StillSecure®, provider of secure network infrastructure solutions, today announced its latest release of Safe Access®, the company's award-winning network access control (NAC) solution. This release adds new compliance reporting functionality, pre-enforcement safety assessment, enhanced functionality for mobile users, and support for the latest Microsoft operating systems and applications. Safe Access is utilized in the world's largest NAC deployment, which includes more than 350,000 managed endpoints, and is the leading NAC solution deployed in the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD).

"StillSecure released Safe Access over six years ago. They have continually delivered a superior product that makes it easy for customers to enforce security policies," said Dom Genzano, Senior Partner and Co-Founder of STIGroup. "Now, security administrators are playing an increasingly important role in regulatory compliance, and they need to rely on tools like Safe Access to audit, test, and report on key compliance requirements."

Safe Access features new compliance reports for updated regulatory requirements. These reports can be utilized by security or network staff for proof of compliance with regulatory requirements such as PCI DSS v1.2, HIPAA (HITECH), GLBA, and others. In addition, Safe Access is proven in DoD environments for verifying compliance with JTF-GNO mandates such as IAV compliance, USB checks, and malware checks.

Additional enhancements include pre-enforcement safety assessment capabilities which minimize the number of quarantined endpoints while assessing the impact of new compliance policies within the organization. Pre-enforcement security assessment enhances security by removing the risks associated with policy changes, allowing granular policy changes to take place without impacting the organization. StillSecure's award-winning Security Alert Team (SAT) monitors emerging threats 24x7x365 and keeps your network continuously protected from the latest hazards. Networks with large numbers of mobile users, such as campus environments, will be better protected while enabling fast, safe connectivity for transient devices.

Also new in Safe Access:

  • Support for testing Windows 7 32/64-bit endpoints
  • Support for testing Windows Vista 64-bit endpoints
  • Support for Windows Server 2008 32/64-bit for DHCP plug-in and RDAC
  • Support for Internet Explorer 8

"Regulatory compliance continues to be a major driver for network access control. StillSecure's close working relationship with a number of organizations that face intense regulatory scrutiny gives us a deep understanding of this problem," said Dave Greenstein, Chief Architect at StillSecure. "That knowledge and experience is reflected in the new and innovative capabilities within Safe Access. We look forward to helping the market better handle compliance with this release."

Safe Access is approved for use in one of the most demanding environments: the U.S. DoD. Safe Access is an approved U.S. Army IA APL solution, CCE EAL 2 certified (EAL 4+ in process), FIPS 140-2 Level I and II compliant, IPv6 compatible, and Section 508 compliant.
