Mancala Network Controller – general availability of version 1.4
Grenoble, France, 14 September 2011 – The privately held network technology company, Mancala Networks, specialized in the development of IP network context-aware control and management products, today announced general availability of the version 1.4 of its award winning Network Controller product.
Version 1.4 includes additional “out of the box” policies and remediation capabilities. It continues the success of previous versions in enabling Managed Service Providers (MSPs) as well as mid to large sized IT organizations to more easily control, manage and secure their customer's networks.
Our Network Controller serves as a relay and management platform for core services like DNS, DHCP, RADIUS, SIP, etc. at the edge of the enterprise network. This enables MSPs and enterprises to easily deliver centrally managed network control, management and security service offerings over 10s, 100s or even 1000s of sites.
The Network Controller dynamically builds a network state that provides not only real-time visibility of devices as they connect and disconnect, but also combines this network context with a powerful policy engine in order to enable real-time policy enforcement and remediation capabilities. This unification of automatic network discovery and real-time policy enforcement enables us to shift the network's security posture in response to the growth of “Bring Your Own Device (B.Y.O.D.) - increased exposure to internal threats and policy violations.
