UK's North Lindsey College Deploys NAC To Secure Networks
- By Dian Schaffhauser
North Lindsey College in North Lincolnshire, United Kingdom has selected Mirage Networks' MAX-500 network access control appliance to secure the wired and wireless networks across campus.
"Our students bring all kinds of devices to our campus daily and gain access to our wired and wireless networks," said Keith Urry, senior network and ICT security officer. "Mirage's policy enforcement allows every authorized endpoint onto the network, but continuously monitors them to ensure they follow pre-set user guidelines. This gives students the freedom to access the network as needed, and also gives our IT administrators the peace of mind that there will be no network disruptions due to non-compliant endpoints."
Mirage's NAC solution controls network access, isolating non-compliant and potentially threatening endpoints and providing self-remediation capabilities.
North Lindsey College offers post-16 education and training and is associated with the University of Lincoln.
