CyberGatekeeper Customers from Large Enterprises to SMBs Have Added Options Including Expanded Integration and Improved Guest Management
Mountain View, Calif., December 2, 2009 – InfoExpress, a leading network security solutions provider, today announced the availability of new features in the InfoExpress CyberGatekeeper family of Network Access Control (NAC) products. The new features in CyberGatekeeper 7 include support for Microsoft® Windows® 7 custom reporting, expanded integration with Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch™ and VitalQIP™ technology, and role-based guest access.
As many organizations skipped the Windows® Vista operating system release, upgrades to Windows 7 are expected to be widespread and aggressive. CyberGatekeeper now supports Windows 7 to help smooth this upgrade process by providing reliable NAC security for the latest Windows platform. In the coming year, 64-bit computing is also expected to expand, with CyberGatekeeper support for 64-bit processors fulfilling the requirement for many organizations. CyberGatekeeper continues to support prior 32 and 64 bit Windows, MacOSX, and Linux, so that all systems within today’s often heterogeneous enterprise environments can have the same level of NAC policy enforcement.
Reporting needs vary across organizations of differing sizes and types and CyberGatekeeper now offers custom reports to provide added flexibility. The new custom report module in CyberGatekeeper enables customers to get reports on specific information in custom formats. InfoExpress customers can design their own SQL queries to provide effective reporting in any environment.
Among the new features in CyberGatekeeper are enforcement methods that integrate with Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch and VitalQIP technology. For customers with Alcatel-Lucent LAN switching and IP address management products, InfoExpress now offers a highly scalable and easy to deploy NAC solution.
Network access control for guest users has always been a feature of CyberGatekeeper, but now role-based access has been expanded. Guest users are given access to specific network resources depending on their role, such as financial services firms being granted access to data servers not available to other guest users.
For organizations with IT budget and staff limitations, InfoExpress offers its CARE comprehensive managed service. Customers can outsource one or all of the InfoExpress NAC specific services, including installation, policy creation and updates, patch management, and ongoing operations.
“Our customers are finding that the new features in CyberGatekeeper provide an even wider range of options to help them meet specific needs,” said Stacey Lum, CEO of InfoExpress. “As always, our customers can turn to the CARE service to assist with all aspects of their NAC deployments, with the new features benefiting everyone.”
