Bradford Networks Partners with Zycko for European Distribution

23 May 2012

23 May 2012, Cirencester - Bradford Networks, the best choice to enable secure network access for corporate issued and personal mobile devices, has partnered with pan-European distributor Zycko. Zycko’s channel will now be able to offer customers unparalleled network security and access management, which is particularly suited to the growing bring your own device (BYOD) trend.

Bradford Networks’ product Network Sentry affords organisations greater visibility and tighter control of IT policy, allowing employees access to the company network through both corporate issued and personal mobile devices. Network Sentry creates a profiled view of all devices on the network and ensures secure and monitored access. IT departments can track and monitor individual devices and use real-time and historical data to make informed decisions about network security and usage. Network Sentry can be delivered via a hardware appliance, a virtual server, or BRADFORD.cloud.

Zycko’s David Galton-Fenzi, group sales director, notes the partnership is a natural addition to Zycko’s solution-focused vendor portfolio: “Bradford Networks’ products are unique in Europe as they offer a full spectrum of visibility and control across wired and wireless heterogeneous networks. They reduce the IT workload and increase compliance and security across the board.

 “BRADFORD.cloud continues to receive attention and win awards as it offers the benefits of secure network access in a Security-as-a-Service (SaaS) model. It is ideal for Managed Service Providers (MSPs) looking to help their customers realise PCI DSS and HIPAA compliance and secure the IP network.

 “The solution also fits well with our existing technology portfolio and is particularly suited to wireless providers such as HP, Ruckus Wireless, Juniper Networks, Meraki and Xirrus. We’re now actively educating our resellers on the role Bradford will play in the enterprise WLAN and how the customer can benefit from the technology.”   

Dan Haley, chief executive officer for Bradford Networks comments: “The security and compliance challenges of BYOD will continue to impact a greater number of businesses, but can be addressed by ensuring that all devices on the network can be identified, tracked, and regulated.
“Zycko’s solution-based channel approach combined with its emphasis on education and true value-add were important factors in our decision to form this distribution partnership.”

Bradford Networks is proving to be a leading innovator in the industry and has recently received significant attention for its IT solutions, including being named a Leader in Network Access Control in the June 2011 Network Access Control (NAC) Forrester Wave™ Evaluation, positioned by Gartner, Inc. as a Visionary in the 2011 ‘Magic Quadrant for Network Access Control’, and winning the Best New Product award at the ASCII Success Summit.
