Brocade and Bradford Networks Technology Alliance

Bradford's out-of-band network access control appliances integrate with Brocade solutions to add automated network access control (NAC) capabilities to the Brocade infrastructure. This allows network administrators to determine the level of network access for authorized users and devices, or the required remediation services for unauthorized users or non-compliant devices.

This collaboration adds role-based identity management, endpoint compliance, and usage policy enforcement to new and installed Brocade infrastructures. Leveraging the inherent security capabilities in Brocade switches, routers, and wireless controllers to act as NAC policy enforcement points, along with standard authentication and authorization technologies such as 802.1x, RADIUS, and Active Directory, Bradford's solution is able to control user access at the point of network access, adding an enhanced level of security to the Brocade infrastructure.
