Nevis Strengthens Identity-based Policy Enforcement

Nevis Networks announced a major new operating software release for its LANenforcer LAN security solutions. 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 integrate identity-based user access control, deep threat defense and user visibility to ensure persistent pre-and-post connect LAN security.

The appliances uniquely integrate identity-based user access control, deep threat defense and user visibility to ensure persistent pre-and-post connect LAN security. The appliance operates at 10 Gbps. In addition, organizations can now design any customized report suited to their compliance and audit requirements, based on the network-wide visibility and packet analysis information gathered by the LANenforcer solutions.

Additional highlights of the newly released LANenforcer 4.0 include:

  • Dissolvable messaging agent (runs in system tray and provides feedback loop and customized informational messages to end users)


  • Identification of corporate owned assets vs. guest/contractor assets


  • Policy evaluation tool (allows you to run "what if" scenarios for policy troubleshooting and planning purposes)


  • Posture checks run on endpoints without admin or power user status


  • Posture check for running processes


  • Selective OS patch posture check (granular control down to individual KB)


  • Support for Mac OSX endpoint posture check


  • Application recognition and control of P2P/IM apps at 10Gbps


  • Scan profiler to reduce malware false positives


  • New posture check dashboard for real time monitoring and troubleshooting


  • Full customized reporting in addition to existing pre-canned reports


Pricing for LANenforcer solutions starts at less than $15/per user (US list) and the 4.0 operating software is now generally available as a free upgrade to the company's existing customers.
