Solution Allows IT Service Providers to Expand Managed Security Offering for Existing Clients; Open Up New, Underserved Markets; and Increase Revenue.
ChannelPro SMB Forum, Dallas, TX, March 7, 2018—Soliton Cyber & Analytics announced the availability of NetAttest LAP One to provide Managed Service Providers (MSPs) with the tools needed to offer flexible and affordable Network Access Control (NAC) to small- and medium-sized businesses (SMB) without the cost and complexity of traditional NAC solutions.
NetAttest LAP One provides continuous, live monitoring and complete, real-time visibility into all active devices on the network. The NetAttest LAP One automatically runs detection upon plugging into a local network and locates active devices – including Internet of Things (IoT) devices that make businesses more vulnerable to attack. After mapping devices on the network, the manager can block unauthorized devices, regardless of location, time-of-day or endpoint type. Contextual access control allows businesses to also enable access to networks and data for BYOD, guest and new corporate devices without compromising security. Because NetAttest LAP One does not send any data outside the network, privacy is guaranteed.
“NetAttest LAP One provides a plug-and-play solution that allows Managed Service Providers to deliver easy, simple and affordable Network Access Control to clients that cannot afford a more complicated solution,” said Chad Kime, Chief Operating Officer of Soliton Cyber & Analytics. “MSPs can help remote offices and SMBs without sophisticated IT departments to gain real-time, automated visibility and control over all devices the instant they access the network without a huge time commitment for set-up or monitoring.”
Network Access Control is Now a Necessity for Many SMBs
There is high demand from SMBs for a Network Access Control service as today’s corporate networks serve a mobile workforce with a wide variety of traditional and non-traditional endpoints. In addition, industry analysts indicate that almost 20.4 billion IoT devices will be connected by 2020. Many SMBs already lack visibility into what devices are accessing corporate resources, and will not even be aware of what those ‘things’ are, what they are doing, who is using them or how they are being used on the network.
“Many people picture security cameras and baby monitors when they talk about IoT devices, but many products have become web-enabled,” continues Kime. “Unfortunately, when the sales manager plugs in that new Smart TV into the network or the CFO plugs in that Amazon Echo into her office, they don’t even think to let their network administrator know – especially if it is a managed service. Security experts recognize that each portal opened to the network needs to be guarded and Net Attest LAP One makes it simple to recognize and track every device, even if it doesn’t cross the mind of the typical employee.”
NetAttest LAP One: Easy-to-Implement Network Access Control for Managed Service Providers
MSPs that provide Network Access Control solutions easily increase revenue from existing clients and attract more business. However, many MSPs have delayed offering NAC services to the SMB market because previous solutions have been costly and difficult to implement and manage. To maximize profits, network access control for managed service providers needs to be quick and simple to install, configure and operate.
“Network Access Control can be an excellent tool to control and restrict access to the network, but because it was designed for larger organizations with robust IT departments, it is too costly to acquire and too complicated to deploy for most SMBs or even the smaller satellite offices of larger companies without on-site IT support,” continues Kime. “MSPs are in an ideal position to extend their offerings and their established expertise to deliver basic network access control products or services to these smaller clients. NetAttest LAP One is an affordable go-to-market solution that compliments basic firewall and endpoint solutions and can easily be pushed out to existing clients to increase client security (and revenue). It can also help MSPs to extend their portfolio of NAC solutions and the flexibility of their current service packages to attract more business.”
