InfoExpress Network Access Control Offers Extended Support for 802.1x Switches and Wireless Controllers Without Endpoint Changes

(May 08, 2012)

Mountain View, Calif., May 8, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InfoExpress, an
enterprise Network Access Control (NAC) solutions provider for
mobile computing and Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) networks,
announced today at the 2012 Interop Las Vegas
Conference and Expo
, that it is extending enforcement to
support Cisco switches and wireless LAN (WLAN) controllers, with
its CyberGatekeeper NAC family of products. The new offering uses
patented technology to eliminate the costly and time-consuming need
to reconfigure endpoints, and has been designed to work with
third-party infrastructure, such as Cisco switches and WLAN

Traditionally the problem with NAC and 802.1x is that network
administrators faced the time consuming and challenging task of
reconfiguring the endpoints and the network, from the RADIUS server
to setting up VLANs. These onerous changes often result in the
delay or cancellation of NAC deployments, even when 802.1x provided
the best technology solution.

The newly added support for Cisco and other third-party switches
and WLAN controllers eliminates configuration changes to the
endpoint and the network. The approach supports computers running
operating systems like Windows and Mac OS X, mobile devices based
on Android and iOS, and embedded devices. It is particularly useful
for organizations implementing BYOD policies for personally owned

Significant benefits include:

Manageability:Simplified configuration of

  • No supplicants needed on endpoints

  • Unlimited endpoint platform support


  • Uses industry-standard features found in most switches and
    wireless controllers

  • Reduces the number of components (appliances are located

  • Scales to large numbers of devices with full redundancy
