Integration Between BlueCat Adonis Appliance and StillSecure Safe Access Provides Secure DHCP-Based Pre-Admission Network Access Control
May 2, 2006; 07:48 AM
Interop Las Vegas 2006 (Booth # 1817)-BlueCat Networks, the leading
provider of DNS, DHCP and Enterprise IPAM Appliances, and StillSecure®,
provider of an award-winning, integrated suite of network security
solutions, today announced a partnership centered on network access
control. BlueCat and StillSecure have integrated BlueCat's Adonis
DNS/DHCP Appliance with StillSecure's Safe AccessTM
NAC solution for better "command and control" over endpoint devices
accessing the network. To formalize the partnership, StillSecure has
become a member of BlueCat's Technology Partnership program.
The BlueCat Adonis appliance enables administrators of enterprise
networks to dynamically assign leased IP addresses to users across the
network. When used with StillSecure Safe Access, IP addresses are only
given to devices that have been pre-tested for policy compliance and
deemed safe to access the network. This process simplifies management
of IP-based networks, resulting in increased efficiency and decreased
Safe Access' flexible architecture and multiple testing methods,
including agent-less, ActiveX, and the StillSecure Posture Agent,
enable the full range of endpoints to be assessed, regardless of
connection methods and OS versions. Safe Access controls network access
for virtually all types of users - including managed and unmanaged,
foreign and internal, remote, and wireless endpoints.
"Because of the explosive growth in mobile and wireless technology,
IP address assignment needs to be integrated with powerful features
such as pre-admission network access control to ensure that devices are
safe to access the network no matter where they're connecting from,"
said David Berg, Director of Product Management, BlueCat Networks.
"StillSecure Safe Access makes it easy for companies to implement NAC
because it's flexible and infrastructure-agnostic so it integrates
seamlessly with products like Adonis."
"Network appliance vendors like BlueCat provide Safe Access with a
platform for organizations to implement secure DHCP-based endpoint
policy enforcement without costly upgrades to the network," said Alan
Shimel, Chief Strategy Officer at StillSecure. "Next-generation network
management products like Adonis and Proteus that work with Safe Access
provide increased network responsiveness as endpoints attempt to
connect to the network."
StillSecure delivers network security solutions that protect IT
business infrastructure. The integrated StillSecure suite provides
preventative defense, enables compliance with regulatory information
security policies, and actively blocks network attacks. StillSecure
manages and reduces risk from network attack and noncompliance for some
of the largest organizations in the healthcare, financial services,
