Soliton Systems Launches Network Access Control (NAC) Appliance to Extend ForeScout CounterACT in Mid-Tier and Distributed Enterprises Tuesday 27 September 2011 PDF Print Soliton Systems NetAttest LAP Appliance teams with ForeScout CounterACT platform to enforce endpoint compliance and mobile security Tokyo, Japan. – 27 September 2011- Soliton Systems K.K. (JP3436300002), a leading provider of IT security in Japan, today announced the new Soliton Systems NetAttest LAP intranet security appliance which provides mid-tier and distributed enterprise IT organisations with policy-based Network Access Control (NAC), endpoint compliance, mobile security and threat protection. Through an alliance with ForeScout, the NetAttest LAP appliance integrates with a customer’s existing ForeScout CounterACT automated security control platform to provide real-time visibility and security enforcement for mid-tier companies and those with branch offices. The appliance is available direct and through Soliton’s partners. The growth of regional offices, the demand for local field employee connectivity, and the increase in teleworking in response to recent earthquakes have forced businesses to take advantage of mobile computing devices such as smart phones, tablet PCs and netbook PCs in order to deliver corporate information from anywhere at any time. Making corporate LAN access convenient, however, also brings the challenges of managing all IT devices, including unmanaged mobile devices, and addressing the increased security risks these devices can introduce. IT organisations can use NetAttest LAP to protect LAN resources by controlling access, as well as isolating affected or unknown devices. NetAttest LAP detects devices attempting to connect to the LAN, and either segregates or disconnects insecure and unknown devices from accessing important resources and sensitive information on a company’s internal network. In addition, NetAttest LAP with CounterACT can stop zero-day attacks, those that are new and unknown, and other endpoint security issues. The approach, which leverages ForeScout CounterACT’s proven functionality, offers a compelling network security solution to keep the extended enterprise safe, while keeping the mobile workforce productive. “Soliton provides a highly flexible means to extend Network Access Control for various companies which have many branches.” said Nobuo Kamata, CEO at Soliton Systems. “NetAttest LAP integrated with CounterACT offers an attractive solution for mid-tier and distributed enterprises and their supporting resellers, not only in Japan, but also in other countries.” Soliton Systems, a Gold level ForeScout Access Partner, collaborated with ForeScout to bring this innovative solution to market. The Soliton Systems NetAttest LAP is available with marketing and technical support provided by Soliton. The Soliton appliance exclusively requires and integrates with ForeScout’s award-winning CounterACT platform. ForeScout CounterACT, available as an appliance or virtual appliance, manages distributed NetAttest LAP appliances. “ForeScout’s automated security control platform offers IT organisations the means to fortify defences while enabling greater connectivity and productivity,” said Gord Boyce, CEO at ForeScout Technologies. “Soliton continues to be a worthy and innovative partner. We are pleased they have integrated with our platform to deliver a solution that meets branch, mobile and teleworker security requirements.” To learn more about NetAttest LAP visit http://www.soliton.co.jp/products/net_security/netattest/lap...
