Consentry Broadens Secure Switch Portfolio With Availability Of 24-Port Switch In The UK
November 2007 by Marc Jacob
ConSentry Networks announced that its LANShield Switch CS-4024 will be available in the UK next month. The 24-port gigabit Ethernet switch joins the CS-4048, a 48-port version that began shipping just over a year ago. This smaller switch makes it easier for existing customers to deploy secure switching in more locations and enables new prospects to adopt the embedded security and control needed to protect their enterprise assets.
The 24-port switch is part of ConSentry’s broader secure-switching strategy, which enables enterprises to migrate their LANs beyond "blind trust" connectivity to a service delivery solution that controls every user and secures every port. Enterprises need their LAN infrastructure to catch up with evolving business models characterised by outsourcing, offshoring, distributed collaboration, and mobility. To simplify that transition, ConSentry’s secure switching provides full control over all users and devices, along with in-depth application knowledge, across a family of wire-speed appliances and switches.
Pricing and Availability
The CS-4024 is available next month, December 2007. In the UK, it has a list price of £3,750.
