ConSentry NAC trade-in offer from Avenda Systems

Avenda Systems : 06 October, 2009  (Company News)
Trade-in incentives are being offered to users of ConSentry's network access control products to change to identity-aware technology from Avenda
Avenda Systems, an innovator in identity-aware network security, has announced its new trade-in program and incentives to help ConSentry Networks customers continue to build their vision for user and endpoint network access security, with a superior and more flexible solution. Mount Pleasant Independent School District (MPISD) of Texas is an example of a ConSentry customer capitalizing on Avenda's trade-in program.

"Avenda Systems went out of their way to provide an easy transition from ConSentry and I was very impressed by all of the powerful features offered in eTIPS, that I did not see in our previous solution," said Noe Arzate, director of Technology at MPISD. "In addition to delivering a superior solution, Avenda worked with us to meet our aggressive price point since we had not anticipated ConSentry's abrupt announcement."

Avenda is offering ConSentry customers a comprehensive migration program that includes an aggressive trade-in offer (up to $20,000 with the purchase of a comparable Avenda solution), design and implementation assistance, and improved security through operational efficiency.

"When ConSentry recently closed its doors, their customers found themselves in a situation where they were forced to find a new solution," said Ron DiBiase, VP of Sales. "Conversations with ConSentry customers led us to offer a rescue plan that helps them move beyond an unfortunate situation. MPISD evaluated our product and quickly decided that our technology and trade-in offer provided the long-term solution they needed."

The following functionality provided by ConSentry's LANShield products is easily replaced and enhanced with the installation of Avenda's eTIPS identity-aware platform:

* Identity-based access control
* Endpoint NAC health checks
* Control of unmanageable devices (printers, IP phones, smartphones)
* Analysis, audit compliance, and detailed reporting based on role

Avenda delivers important advantages including:

* Out-of-band architecture that supports any networking vendors' equipment which minimizes network topology changes
* Fully 802.1X-based (optional Quick1X endpoint auto-configuration wizard)
* Agent, agentless and dissolvable agents for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X endpoints
* Complete AAA services via built-in RADIUS, TACACS, or SNMP
* Full support for NAC and Microsoft NAP
* Intuitive management interface with multiple implementation tools and templates
* Cluster-able appliances for redundancy, load balancing, and scalability
* Attractive price points
