StillSecure Announces Key Upgrades to Safe Access NAC Solution

In an effort to help enterprises secure personal devices on corporate networks, StillSecure (News - Alert), a managed security services provider and certified compliance company , has announced significant upgrades to its Network Access Control (NAC) solution Safe Access 6.0 including the military-grade IAV reporting.

Safe Access is a certified NAC solution. It impedes unauthorized access, prevents malicious endpoint activity, and enforces an organization's security policies. Deployed widely in the Department of Defense and across mid- to large-scale enterprises, it helps companies comply with PCI (News - Alert), HIPAA, GLBA, FISMA and SOX.

With the latest enhancements to Safe Access 6.0, IT administrators will be able to enable the use of personal mobile devices and tablets onto corporate networks by including bring-your-own-device identification and enforcement capabilities.

James Brown, CTO for StillSecure, said in a statement, "StillSecure understands the challenges IT administrators face given the burgeoning bring-your-own-device-to-work trend. For enterprises that support an increasingly mobile staff who often need access to work via their personal devices, StillSecure provides access and monitoring capabilities for thousands of those devices to ensure a company's most critical data remains protected."

Providing control over how security policies are defined and enforced across a network, Safe Access defines as well as enforces the rules and criteria for authorizing access to the network. It provides many access control options for devices that either meet or do not meet security policy, and for either guest or unmanaged devices.

Safe Access 6.0 can identify game systems, printers and VoIP phones, as well as mobile devices and tablets.

Because it is compliant, optimized and specialized for deployment in defense environments, Safe Access 6.0 also provides IAV reporting capabilities for its Federal and DoD customers.

With the help of Safe Access 6.0, customers can now work directly with IAV findings -- critical to DoD information assurance activity – by utilizing StillSecure's military-grade IAV rule set.

Brown added, "These latest product enhancements end the hand wringing that is inevitably associated with letting employee mobile devices and tablets onto company networks."

Recently, the company was named to CRN Magazine's 2012 Data Center 100 list.
