Bradford Networks Named Winner of eSchool Media's 2012 Readers' Choice Awards

Customer Bryant University Recognizes Bradford's Network Sentry as Best Product in Education Technology for Delivering Innovative Network Access Control Solution for BYOD

CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - Jan 24, 2012) - Bradford Networks, the best choice to enable secure network access for corporate issued and personal mobile devices, today announced that its flagship product, Network Sentry, has been recognized by eSchool Media as a winner of its 2012 Readers' Choice Awards. Nominated by Bradford customer Bryant University, Network Sentry was honored for empowering university employees and students to use the mobile device of their choice for secure network access in and outside of the classroom.

The 2012 Readers' Choice Awards recognize ed-tech products and services that schools, school districts and higher education institutions are using to improve teaching, learning or school administration. Selected from nearly 1,400 nominations, Bradford's Network Sentry was named a winner in the Higher Education category.

"Bryant University's number one priority is to help students achieve success, and to do this effectively, we needed to address the proliferation of mobile devices (laptops, smartphones, tablets, etc.) across our campus," said Jon Domen, network manager, Bryant University. "Bradford's NAC solution is empowering our students to continue their education outside the classroom walls by providing secure, yet convenient, network access. With Network Sentry, our IT department has complete visibility of all users and devices on the network, eliminating endpoint vulnerabilities and increasing overall security."

Network Sentry is the first network security offering that automatically identifies and profiles all devices and all users on a network, providing complete visibility and control. The solution automatically detects and registers all devices, authenticates users, scans for policy compliance and provisions network access accordingly. With Network Sentry, Bryant University is saving significant time and resources, and has made the beginning-of-semester onboarding process a non-event for students, faculty and its IT department.

"The demand for a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) security policy may be a new trend in today's enterprise, but Bradford has been helping educational institutions with this security issue for years," said Tom Murphy, CMO of Bradford Networks. "We are honored to be named to this esteemed list and even more proud that our product is being used to better the education of students in schools like Bryant University."

In addition to Network Sentry, Bradford Networks now offers the first pure Security-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering,, and introduced the first App that enables secure network access for trusted iPads, iPhones and other Apple devices.
