Melbourne, March 15, 2011 – Wavelink, a value added distributor of business IP, wireless, communication and network access and security solutions, has announced it has been appointed as the Australian distributor for Identity Networks’ simple and secure guest network access and management products – Guest Manager and Policy Manager.
Identity Networks is the world’ s leading provider of Guest Management Servers, and has been deployed in more than 2,000 of the world’s largest organisations, in all vertical markets including finance, energy, IT, education, government, healthcare, retail and hospitality. Customers include Cisco who has deployed it to meet their own internal guest access needs.
Ilan Rubin, managing director, Wavelink, said, “Distributing Identity Networks’ guest network and access management products ties in with Wavelink’s strategy to expand our existing portfolio and deliver a complementary set of wireless and network solutions.
Mark Jones, managing director, Identity Networks, said, “Identity Networks’ products give organisations a way of simply, yet effectively deploying secure guest networks and managing documents to ensure compliance and audit trail in a business environment that is increasingly being exposed to risks and malicious attacks.
“Wavelink was selected as our Australian distribution partner because of its experience with large scale wireless networks and our solutions complement the work that Wavelink does in this area extremely well.”
Guest Manager is an appliance-based solution that gives organisations the ability to securely deploy and easily manage guest access, integrating with existing network infrastructure, rather than needing overlay components to provide the network access and enforcement.
Policy Manager gives organisations a quick and simple way of issuing, and enforcing standard operating procedures, policies and staff notifications. It provides a relevant, up-to-date library of role-related documentation to each employee.
It also provides a fully auditable path for any given policy, recording the creation, revision, and publication process along with the uptake of, and user compliance with, each and every policy or document published and can be used to enforce these policies by preventing network access to non-compliant users in association with a network access control device.
