CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwired - Jul 10, 2013) - Bradford Networks™, the best choice to secure network access for BYOD, today announced a strategic distribution partnership with Fine Tec, an award-winning value-added distributor specializing in network security and data integrity products.

Working with leading system integrators, service providers and value-added resellers, Fine Tec covers key markets including aviation, education, financial firms, government, health care and high technology. This distribution agreement will enable Fine Tec to bundle Bradford Networks' industry-leading network access control (NAC) solution, Network Sentry, with its comprehensive network security offering for its distribution channels.

Furthermore, Bradford Networks' integration with Fortinet will make this solution even more attractive to our resellers who will now be able to provide their customers with a comprehensive solution for network security that includes both proactive detection and control at the edge of their networks."

Bradford Networks Network Sentry solution delivers 100 percent visibility and control of all users and devices on the network. It automatically discovers, profiles, and registers all users and their associated devices, whether corporate-issued or personally owned, and dynamically provisions the appropriate level of network access based on compliance with policies.
