Enterasys NAC 3.2 Achieves Five-Star Rating From SC Magazine

Group Test Review Praises Enterasys NAC's Flexibility, Performance and Value

ANDOVER, MA--(Marketwire - October 26, 2009) -  Enterasys, the network infrastructure and security division of Siemens Enterprise Communications Group, today announced that its NAC 3.2 Solution has been designated with a Five-Star rating in SC Magazine's NAC Group Test Review. Enterasys NAC 3.2 was lauded for its flexibility, features, documentation, support and overall value.

According to SC Magazine, a Five-Star rating signifies "Outstanding" performance, or an "A" on the product's overall report card. The full NAC Group Review is available in the October 2009 issue of the magazine.

"With a price starting at just under $9,000, we find this Enterasys product to be a good value for the money," the report states. "While the tool can interface with many managed switches and other components, the inline approach with the included controller allows for a great amount of flexibility for different types of network environments."

"With Enterasys NAC minding the network, Fitchburg State is confident that we provide our students with a secure, robust computing environment and that our campus is safe from the threats we read about every day," said Sherry Horeanopoulos, Information Security officer at Fitchburg State College. "With the heavy reliance higher education institutions have on a properly working academic network in a constantly changing user environment, easily deployable, state-of-the-art tools to monitor and protect resources are critical."

"We are proud that SC Magazine recognized the outstanding value and features offered by Enterasys NAC," said Barry Cioe, VP of Product Management for Enterasys. "This positive review underscores a significant increase in the demand for Enterasys NAC -- we've seen its year-over-year revenue grow by 317 percent. SC Magazine's recent NAC Test Group reinforces our belief that companies worldwide are investing in the security delivered by NAC technology, but they are also in need of a cost-effective, easily manageable solution for enterprise users, guests and contractors."
