Network access security and intelligence provider Avenda Systems has introduced a new access security platform for physical and virtual machine appliances, eTIPS version 4.0.
Avenda said customers will now be able to create larger, distributed network access security domains or clusters to support uniform context-aware policy enforcement capabilities, for geographically dispersed mobile enterprise deployments.
The new platform offers real-time network access visibility and operational intelligence, and encompasses features that automate the access security of a large, complex, and globally distributed workforce.
These new capabilities offer policy management, AAA, and network access control (NAC) endpoint compliance that overcome the complexity, administrative burden and operational limitations of competitive approaches for distributed deployments that require a siloed high-availability model, dedicated management consoles.
Avenda’s user and device-based authentication platform comes with new clustering capabilities to meet location specific compliance demands of global enterprises, which require consistent user policies and control including the support for personal devices.
The new release provides additional functionality that supports managing a dynamic mobile environment and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives, including the ability to assign granular administrative privileges per location, job role, access method.
eTIPS version 4.0 also delivers enhanced endpoint health assessments that include checks for USB devices, and granular hot fixes/patch compliance, including global command and control capabilities for proactively altering an endpoint’s status over wireless and wired connections from a central console.
