Enterasys Networks, a provider of networks solution, has announced that Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota will leverage its Network Access Control to authenticate, assess and authorize over 7,000 students and employees, and more than 4,000 networked devices.
Locations in St. Paul, Minnesota; New York; Philadelphia; San Diego; and Washington are united by a coast-to-coast voice/video/data network offering distance learning and teaching applications, including blackboard.
Through its partnership with Enterasys, the university’s IT staff has granular visibility and control over applications using the network without the need to touch desktop or laptop computers.
Bill Doyle, vice president of IT services for Bethel University, said: Prior to deploying Enterasys, it was difficult for us to determine where our users or devices connected within our multi-campus network. Now we can identify users and devices and address problems while leveraging role-based policies that prioritize and secure specific applications and users. Enterasys NAC is a flexible solution that scales to meet our dynamic requirements.
