MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Vernier Networks(R) today announced the addition of the EdgeWall Rx network access management appliance to its EdgeWall product family. EdgeWall Rx extends network access management to remote users, significantly reducing the risk of security threats and intrusions from external devices and limiting access to sensitive assets.

The company also strengthened the entire EdgeWall line by adding support for VoIP phones and bolstering existing support for laptops, desktops and servers by adding clientless policy compliance scans for both managed and unmanaged devices.

"Based on feedback from hundreds of our customers and our significant technology lead, Vernier has been able to take network access management a step further than the competition," said Simon Khalaf, president and CEO of Vernier Networks. "Our innovative approach and strong market lead enable our customers to stop internal security threats and intrusions within the fabric of the network."

As teleworking gains in popularity and the mobile workforce continues to grow, securing the network from threats that can be acquired over these connections is becoming a critical issue for IT and security departments. Vernier's EdgeWall Rx extends security policies and controls for users physically located within the organization's premises to remote users connecting to the network from home, remote offices or public hot spots.

Supporting IPSec VPNs and SSL VPNs, EdgeWall Rx resides between the VPN concentrator and the network, scanning all devices connecting to the network for worms, viruses and non-compliant software before applying granular access control and enforcing corporate policies.

"We have been working with Vernier on deploying EdgeWall to extend network access management to our remote users," said Al Lopez, data network manager of Leap Wireless. "While several features influenced our decision, the deciding factor was EdgeWall's ability to enforce the same network access policies regardless of where and how the connection was made. With Vernier, we can maintain the same policy for wired, wireless and remote users -- without having to deploy agents on the desktop."
