“With our small network IT staff, it is essential that we have an automated solution to stop worms that get past perimeter defenses. With the Mirage Networks solution, instead of 200 or 300 systems to clean up, we’ll only have the initial infection point, which will remain contained until we have the time to remediate that system.”
-- Dan Scott, Senior Systems Engineer, Round Rock ISD

Vendor Profile - Mirage Networks, Inc. is the leading provider of Network Access Control (NAC) solutions, including both pre- and post-admission security. The company’s patented technology gives organizations control over unknown, out-of-policy, and infected devices resulting in increased network uptime, policy compliance, and reduced operational costs. Mirage’s NAC appliances work in all network environments, deploy out-of-band, and require neither signatures nor agents to enforce policies and terminate zero-day threats. Based in Austin, Texas, Mirage Networks Endpoint Control is a consistent winner of industry awards and recognition.
Despite firewalls and intrusion detection systems, Round Rock ISD was unable to stop rapidly propagating threats across a state-of-the-art network serving nearly 40,000 users.
Mirage NAC immediately stopped the threats without signatures or agents. Additionally, the solution uncovered network abuses arising from incomplete firewall rules and misconfigured PCs.
