SnoopWall’s NetSHIELD is a next generation network access control (NAC) solution that lets you gain visibility and control over your networks by automatically blocking untrusted devices that should not be gaining access.
Many companies today are focusing on securing their organization from threats that exist outside the perimeter of their network by using firewalls and IDS/IPS systems. But most of today’s threats are not entering the organization through the firewall, but through malware-infected devices behind the firewall. In order to strike at the root cause of this, you need a network access control solution that blocks unwanted devices from accessing your network.
The problem with traditional NACs is that they were complex, costly, and not flexible enough to work within your existing network. Not anymore.
NetSHIELD is the next-generation solution providing comprehensive access control that is simple to deploy and manage. No agents or changes to network infrastructure; it can simply be taken out of the box and blocking untrusted devices within a few minutes.
Beyond this core NAC functionality, NetSHIELD appliances can enumerate vulnerabilities present on the devices accessing your network in a non-intrusive way similar to how hackers would, so that you can be proactive about remediating vulnerabilities. Appliances are also equipped with a malware detection feature designed to identify outbound “command and control” traffic destined toward known malware sites, and this is integrated with the blocking engine to provide millisecond response time to contain this type of malware threats.
The NetSHIELD Value Proposition:
- Low Cost Multifunctional Appliance (CAPEX & OPEX)
- Easy to Install and Provision
- Remotely Managed and Supported
- Integrated View of the Entire Enterprise Network
Easily integrates into a company’s existing infrastructure and eliminates costs associated with configuration. NetSHIELD also delivers on an affordable scale as organizations’ needs evolve; users can deploy a central “master” console, similar to a command center that monitors the network traffic of field sites.
