LANShield 24-port switch available in the UK

Consentry Networks : 15 November, 2007  (New Product)
Smaller version of 48 port switch available from Consentry Networks to provide secure switching capabilities for wider range of companies and applications
ConSentry Networks has announced that its LANShield Switch CS-4024 will be available in the UK next month. The 24-port gigabit Ethernet switch joins the CS-4048, a 48-port version that began shipping just over a year ago. This smaller switch makes it easier for existing customers to deploy secure switching in more locations and enables new prospects to adopt the embedded security and control needed to protect their enterprise assets.

'With the LANShield Switch, we've been able to provide controlled network access to our contract workers and gain visibility and control across our remote locations,' said David Francis, CIO of Espeed. 'This smaller version of the switch will let us economically extend that security out to even our smallest sites, providing us with consolidated but comprehensive knowledge of and control over users and applications across our business.'

The combination of visibility and control has been a useful asset to UK businesses. Even during brief evaluation periods, UK customers have been able to identify misuse of the network, such as movie sharing, uploading of vacation photos, and visits to inappropriate websites. Simply gaining that level of visibility, tied to the username, has improved IT's knowledge of LAN traffic. Being able to implement access controls based on policy gives that visibility even greater value.

The 24-port switch is part of ConSentry's broader secure-switching strategy, which enables enterprises to migrate their LANs beyond 'blind trust' connectivity to a service delivery solution that controls every user and secures every port. Enterprises need their LAN infrastructure to catch up with evolving business models characterised by outsourcing, offshoring, distributed collaboration, and mobility. To simplify that transition, ConSentry's secure switching provides full control over all users and devices, along with in-depth application knowledge, across a family of wire-speed appliances and switches.
