AUCONET Again Named in Magic Quadrant for NAC and Strengthens its Position in the US Market
BERLIN and SAN FRANCISCO, February 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –
With ongoing investments, a growing presence in San Francisco and a repeated place in
Gartner’s “Magic Quadrant for Network Access Control (NAC) 2012″, German software
vendor AUCONET has made the next decisive steps within the US market.
The renowned research and consulting company Gartner Inc. reviewed AUCONET and its
newest NAC solutions, which are already being used successfully by clients with well over
100,000 endpoints and scattered cross-border locations. The agentless-based approach of
AUCONET’s solutions and its ease of implementation were consistently highlighted by all
customers taking part in this research.
“As consumerization and the spreading of BYOD is a phenomenon all enterprises have to
deal with by and large, it becomes ever more vital that NAC solutions are able to include
every device no matter the brand,” says Frank Winter, CEO of AUCONET. “Which is exactly
what AUCONET offers: a highly sophisticated and vendor-independent infrastructure-based
NAC approach, that works even with those continent-spanning, heterogeneous IT networks
usually owned by large enterprises. Extremely scalable and easy to deploy it is a NAC
solution that spreads into every corner without leaving the blind spots that can render
your whole security toothless.”
“AUCONET provides 100% visibility into network traffic by capturing and displaying
NetFlow records,” CEO Frank Winter points out, “especially organizations with vast,
heterogeneous network infrastructures will profit significantly from that.”
Other than many competitors the solutions AUCONET offer enables enterprises to protect
each network port directly and individually. Allowing the combined operation of IEEE
802.1X and MAC (Layer-2) authentication on one single platform, NAC by AUCONET is able to
create the highest security in any environment. Together with the fast implementation of
and the effective collaboration with 3rd party solutions for Mobile Device Management
(MDM), Health Check and Remediation, businesses of all branches will benefit from a
comprehensive and complete security machinery.
So, the ongoing growth of its San Francisco branch is an open invitation to all large
American enterprises to check AUCONET’s new and convincing answers to all the daunting
questions that expansive networks tend to generate.
