Customers and Channel Give High Marks to Bradford Networks' BYOD Mobile Security Suite

Bradford Networks Strengthens Integration With HP Networking Products With a VMware-Based Solution

CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - Sep 10, 2012) - Bradford Networks today announced customer validation for its recently announced Mobile Security Suite. The integrated solution creates an easy-to-use workflow wizard by combining Bradford Networks' heterogeneous network access control (NAC) product with HP Enterprise Mobility Solutions to simplify the deployment of both Bradford Networks and HP products. Further, the combined solution securely allows personal mobile devices onto corporate networks quickly, while lowering total cost of ownership.

"The workflow wizard Bradford Networks developed for this secure mobility solution makes implementation extremely easy," said David Brawner, manager of network services, Maryville University. "With a lean team and a growing demand to allow our students to have the tools they need without compromising network security, we needed a solution that is simple to install and maintain, and that we can trust to do the job. This solution from these two trusted providers fits the bill."

The challenges that the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) initiative creates for end-user organizations around security and compliance issues are considerable. This presents good opportunities for network VARs and integrators to deliver solutions that will ensure all devices on the network can be effectively monitored and managed. It enables VARs to meet the most pressing needs of their customers and differentiate their value propositions.

Available in a range of deployment options, including an appliance, virtual and as a private cloud offering, the Mobile Security Suite addresses the most critical enterprise IT issues driven by the consumerization of IT, including:

  • Enabling flexible network access for personal devices without compromising security -- employees can use their own devices and be more productive;
  • Securing network resources, including financial assets, intellectual property, R&D data, credit card data, and patient data;
  • Providing the IT staff with 100 percent visibility into the wired and wireless devices being connected to their corporate networks;
  • Provisioning network access based on device type and user role;
  • Eliminating device vulnerabilities that can create backdoors for cyber-criminals and advanced persistent threat (APT) attacks;
  • Ensuring regulatory compliance with PCI DSS, CIPA, HIPAA and more.

Bradford Networks' NAC solution now runs on a VMware solution on HP AllianceONE Advanced Services zl Module.

"As personal mobile device use increases in the workplace, organizations need to ensure they are able to monitor all appliances present on their network," said Roger Sands, product line director, Mobility and Wireless, Networking, HP. "Bradford Networks' Mobile Security Suite combined with the HP Enterprise Mobility Solution provides customers with the ability to securely and easily manage both wired and wireless solutions on a single hardware platform."
