Mountain View, Calif. – June 4, 2007 – Nevis Networks, a market leader in identity-based policy enforcement solutions that secure network resources, today announced it has more than doubled sales quarter-to-quarter, Q4 2006 – Q1 2007, and grown its customer base more than 140 percent in the last six months. In addition, the company has added its first Fortune 100 customer as demand for its LANenforcer product line continues to grow. “Customers that have looked at a wide variety of so-called NAC solutions have a strong preference for inline systems that can enforce granular pre and post-connect policies to secure their LANs,” said Shane Buckley, chief operating officer of Nevis Networks. “But that’s only half the battle. Deployment simplicity is the key driver of this wave of success we’re enjoying in the marketplace.”
Nevis has added new customers across virtually every key geography in the past quarter including the US, Western Europe, Japan and Korea. New account wins include Keystone Automotive, Satyam, South Orange County Community College District and a Fortune 100 defense contractor. “As we broaden our LANenforcer deployments, we’re learning that customers want preconfigured access control policies that can be automatically provisioned right ‘out-of-the-box’,” Buckley said. “And we’re finding this to be a key advantage of our LANenforcer appliances that also help customers easily customize and/or modify policies without requiring significant IT and security resources.” “Just deploying NAC as an endpoint security solution won’t guarantee long-term success; operations and security teams will still need to overcome NAC’s limitations,” according to Industry Analysts Natalie Lambert and Robert Whiteley of Forrester Research in a March 29, 2007, report entitled “Client Management 2.0: IT Ops Needs Next-Gen NAC and Client Security to Manage Endpoint Risk.”
In the report, which is consistent with Nevis’ customer experience, Lambert and Whiteley conclude, “The next generation of client and network security will encompass multiple solutions, which we dub proactive endpoint risk management [PERM], defined as policy-based software technologies that manage risk by integrating endpoint security, access control, identity and configuration management.”
In recognition of its innovation in LAN security, Nevis has also been recognized in five industry awards in 2007, including IT Week’s Top 50 Technology Innovators of 2006, a Red Herring 100 Finalist, Info Security Product Guide’s Global Product Excellence Awards for LAN Security and Identity-based Access Control, and as a finalist in the 2007 American Business Awards. The Nevis LANenforcer family integrates comprehensive LAN security functions into an ASIC-based security policy processing engine that provides deep inspection of every packet to ensure data integrity and confidentiality, threat containment and user accountability. The appliances uniquely integrate identity-based user access control, deep threat defense and user visibility to ensure persistent pre-and-post connect LAN security. In addition, Nevis Labs, the global security research arm of the Nevis organization, continues to make strong contributions to the security community as a whole, having identified 11 major vulnerabilities to date.
