Bradford Networks Collaborates with Aruba Networks to Develop Aruba Endpoint Compliance System

Extends Aruba's NAC capabilities with advanced identity, endpoint, and policy tools

Concord, NH – Aug 24, 2007 – Bradford Networks, a leading provider of comprehensive network access control (NAC) solutions, announced today that it has worked with Aruba Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARUN), a global leader in user-centric networks and secure mobility solutions, to develop advanced technology that extends Aruba’s existing NAC capabilities. This collaboration resulted in the new Endpoint Compliance System (ECS) that Aruba will market, sell, and support worldwide.

Since delivering its first NAC products in 2002, Bradford Networks has been a leader in out-of-band NAC solutions that leverage existing network infrastructure to secure network integrity and automate network access control.

“The introduction of mobile users into a network environment requires a means to ensure that only authorized users can gain access. Aruba’s new ECS appliance, co-developed by Bradford, works with Aruba’s per-user stateful firewall technology to create an integrated security infrastructure that verifies identity and enforces policies across both wireless and wireline networks,” said Mike Gadoury, Bradford Networks founder and CEO. “The work with Aruba has resulted in an advanced NAC solution that is ideal for mobile users. The combined solution manages identity, enforces network usage policy, and maintains corporate standards for endpoint compliance.”
