Bradford Networks Launches Network Sentry/NAC 7.0

Release Extends the Range of Trust and Risk Indicators to Strengthen an Organization's Network Security Posture

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/28/14 -- Bradford Networks™, the leading provider of rapid threat response solutions today unveiled version 7.0 of its Network Sentry/NAC product. This new version of the company's flagship product empowers organizations to strengthen their network security posture by capitalizing on a new range of trust and risk indicators from the network infrastructure, endpoints, and technology integrations.

Bradford Networks' patented Network Sentry/NAC 7.0 is a versatile and powerful network access control solution with unique visibility and control over every connection to the network. Network Sentry/NAC continuously assesses the risk of every user and endpoint on the network, and provisions the appropriate level of network access based on granular and flexible security policies. Additionally, through its SmartEdge Platform, Network Sentry/NAC integrates with the leading mobile device management (MDM), security information and event management (SIEM), next-gen firewalls, and advanced threat detection solutions to leverage more intelligence for better policy decisions.

Key new features of Network Sentry/NAC 7.0 include:

  • Agentless Scanning of Window's hosts delivers non-intrusive visibility, device profiling, and application inventory to fully understand an endpoints' risk
  • Automatic LDAP server discovery and integration provides enhanced network infrastructure intelligence, a baseline for policies, and a source for identifying trusted users
  • Support of 802.1x/MAC authentication enables granular port level visibility and control for Juniper EX series and Cisco 4500 series switches
  • Powerful SIEM integration provides intelligence on risky or compromised endpoints that is leveraged to enhance policy decisions
  • Broader MDM integration identifies known and trusted mobile devices if the MDM agent is installed and the device is under management
  • Automatic appliance OS updates ensures the highest level of server security and protection from denial-of-service attacks
  • Granular role-based administration to segment responsibilities, empowering administrative users while ensuring the proper delineation of privileges
  • Enhanced Topology view provides end-to-end network visibility through a single pane of glass for ease of management and fast troubleshooting

"Mobile endpoints are the new perimeter. At the same time, they introduce risk, create a larger attack surface, and can create backdoors for cyber threats. As a policy engine for the network, network access control plays a key role by making informed decisions about every mobile device and its level of access," said Tom Murphy, CMO, Bradford Networks. "With Network Sentry/NAC 7.0 we are at the forefront of leveraging every available indicator of trust, risk, and compromise to make the most intelligent NAC policy decisions."

Network Sentry Version 7.0 is generally available and can be deployed as a physical appliance, virtual appliance, or cloud service.
