Growing Demand for Identity-Based Access Control Providing Channel with Significant Market Opportunities

Mountain View, Calif. – October 1, 2007 – Nevis Networks, a market leader in identity-based policy enforcement solutions that control network access and secure sensitive resources, today announced the addition of nine new channel partners during the past nine weeks following the June 4 launch of its global channel partner program. Nevis continues to grow its channel with a variety of new partners that are adding Nevis’ LANenforcer appliances and secure switches to their product portfolios to offer an affordable, identity-based network access control solution.

“Nevis appliances and secure switches have proven to be the solution that helped us win new customer relationships where we hadn’t succeeded earlier,” said Steve Allen, security solutions manager at DPSciences, based in Cincinnati. “Nevis is a great fit for us, not only because of increasing customer demand for market leading identity-based access control and intelligent intrusion prevention, but due to our ability to build strategic relationships that combine Nevis’ technology with our own professional services. Because the Nevis systems provide granular visibility into a client’s network, we have the opportunity to help analyze areas of network vulnerability at the outset of an engagement. We guide clients to define role-based policies and enforcement procedures tailored to their business operations, and then assist our clients with phased system rollouts. These are significant value-added services that strengthen ties with our customers and position DPSciences as a trusted advisor.”

The Nevis channel program also offers full certification programs that are proving to be a key to converting resellers from evaluators to partners. “Nevis is reminiscent of much larger organizations that provide channel partners with very rich and comprehensive web-based training, which is like having a dedicated sales engineer on staff 24×7,” said Jeff Wolach, CTO at Sinnott Wolach Technology Group based in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. “In addition, the company provides us complete access to Nevis Labs, a world class threat detection and vulnerability research organization.”

Nevis’ LANenforcer appliances and secure switches are transparently interoperable with existing network infrastructure elements, and provide a migration path for new initiatives such as Microsoft’s Network Access Protection (NAP). This means that channel partners can provide immediate solutions with long term value in a broad range of customer network infrastructures. “This provides us with yet another selling advantage for our customers,” said Joe Luciano, CEO at AccessIT Group based in Mountain Lakes, N.J. “Customers want solutions, not turf battles,” Luciano added. 

The Nevis Difference
Nevis provides the highest performance, lowest cost and most comprehensive LAN Security and NAC solutions on the market today. Nevis’ highly differentiated LANenforcer solutions provide enterprises with the ability to comprehensively address the problem of protecting corporate IP and data assets in the face of the dissolving network perimeter and highly mobile, transient workforces to:

  • mitigate the risk from endpoint vulnerabilities without adversely affecting the user experience;
  • understand who is accessing the network and provide simple, identity-based control over which network resources they are permitted to access;
  • protect from zero-day malware and a broad spectrum of malicious LAN attacks;
  • reduce the overall costs of troubleshooting, incident resolution and compliance auditing on the network; and
  • integrate easily with existing network, policy and management infrastructures.

Nevis LANenforcer Secure Access Switch – Enterprise-class secure access switches that provide persistent LAN Security and NAC protection by dynamically securing every user and device on every port. With secure throughput up to 10 Gbps and switching latency, the LANenforcer Secure Switch provides a cost effective way to secure high risk and high value assets, or to deploy ubiquitous LAN Security in the wiring closet while leveraging existing budgets for switch refreshes.

Nevis LANenforcer LAN Security Appliance – A transparent overlay LAN security appliance that supports up to 1000 users with 10Gbps of secured throughput. Deployed transparently as a ‘bump in the wire’ anywhere in the network, LANenforcer appliances monitor traffic from thousands of disparate users and IP connected devices, and provide NAC, comprehensive identity-based visibility and access control, with microsecond threat detection and response.

Nevis LANsight Security Manager – A centralized management platform that provides unprecedented visibility into activity and resource usage on the network down to the individual user and application. To this end, LANsight supports a wide range of identity-based reports for network and security operational staff, compliance auditors and C-level execs.
