FT. LEE, N.J. and THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. -- ReefEdge, Inc., an industry leader in wireless network infrastructure products, today announced that California Lutheran University has deployed the ReefEdge Connect System on its Thousand Oaks, California campus. The system is used primarily to guard against rogue wireless networks, authenticate student and faculty users, control access, and maintain connectivity across subnets. Additionally, the system can be managed remotely and is easily scaleable to support current and future needs. We see a wireless campus as a "must-have" in order to keep attracting top quality students and faculty. Additionally, if we don't supply our students and faculty with wireless, they will do it themselves, says Zareh Marselian, Director of Technical Services at California Lutheran University. We wanted to guard against people setting up multiple wireless networks that would prevent user authentication for other network users or lead to sensitive information flowing out of the university. Rogue access points also tend not to be configured properly, putting the entire network's security at risk. CLU is using the ReefEdge Connect Server for enterprise-strength security through user authentication, setting real-time access control privileges for an unlimited number of user groups, location-based access control, and Dynamic IPSec encryption. Its seamless mobility and session persistence keeps networked applications and connections alive even when users move between floors or buildings within the campus. In addition, the ReefEdge solution works with multiple wireless technologies, multiple vendors' equipment, and multiple connected devices. It was critical that CLU's wireless network be vendor-neutral since there is no mandate on the type of network card a user must have. ReefEdge Inc.
