Ruckus Wireless provides better WiFi with Less Equipment

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

BETT show 2014 is fast approaching and we can’t wait to get underway. This year we will have Kaspersky Lab and Ruckus Wireless on our stand showcasing their latest solutions.

Make sure you come and see Net-Ctrl and partners on stand F121.

Graduating to Better Wi-Fi with Less Equipment—Campus Wide.

Colleges and universities are all challenged to move up to higher-speed, more reliable Wi-Fi. They want strong security, killer coverage, and connections that don’t drop. They also need Wi-Fi to go to places where no Ethernet cabling has gone before, such as common areas, temporary classrooms, on-campus housing, and every corner of the campus. But for most educational institutions, tighter budgets and busy IT staffs make the transition impossible.

Fortunately, Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi provides the technology that gives schools a cost-effective wireless infrastructure that’s in a class by itself. Ruckus BeamFlex technology uses a high gain adaptive antenna array that monitors the environment and automatically finds the best signal path to each client. It provides robust, complete coverage and summa-cum-laude performance—at an affordable price.

With Ruckus, educational institutions gain:

  • Consistent, reliable connectivity no other Wi-Fi system can touch
  • Up to four times the coverage and higher performance using fewer APs
  • The lowest cost of ownership
  • Support for standard 802.1x, WPA (PSK) and WPA-2 (AES) security, plus automatic wireless setting and encryption key security
  • Proven solutions to support BYOD, NAC, Mobile Device Management and other critical security management functions

With ZoneFlex, WLAN configuration is literally performed in minutes through an on-screen Wizard. Deploying APs is radically streamlined as well. Since Ruckus delivers the best coverage, site surveys are much easier and ZoneFlex APs can be placed quickly in more convenient locations. And from a single management point, IT administrators can easily add SSIDs across the entire system to support specific traffic types or user groups, including guests, creating a single robust WLAN that’s a ubiquitous utility for everyone.

Kaspersky Lab at BETT 2014 with Net-Ctrl

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013

Net-Ctrl and Kaspersky Lab will be exhibiting at BETT 2014 and showcasing their endpoint security portfolio on stand F121. Also joining us on our stand this year will be Ruckus Wireless.

Make sure you stop by and find out more about what we have to offer.

About Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business

IT professionals remind us every day that their occupation is becoming increasingly difficult. The job has always been hard, but now the level of complexity across the network and connected devices seems out of control. There is often frustration over the lack of resources, shrinking budgets, and users who take your policies to the limit. Once stationary, data has now migrated across multiple systems, smartphones and tablets and is often located in coffee shops, airplanes and left behind in taxis. And of course, application patching to stop vulnerabilities has become a full-time job (that is if you can ever really know which applications are being used). This complexity has forced some organisations to make security compromises.

You need a new, uncomplicated way to deal with these changes and threats.

Administrators can see, control and protect their IT environment with Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business. Tools and technologies are uniquely balanced across progressive tiers to meet your evolving security and IT needs. Kaspersky can make your job easier.
Kaspersky_EndPoint_Solution_New
Kaspersky boasts a comprehensive list of technologies — all working together from the same codebase and further assisted by the cloud-based Kaspersky Security Network — to give our customers the world-class protection they need.

In short, we’ve delivered the industry’s first Security Platform, built from the ground up, making it easy for you to see, control and protect your world.

Which tier is right for you?

Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business, CORE

Starting from a foundation of Kaspersky’s award-winning and powerful workstation anti-malware protection and a firewall, we add Kaspersky Security Center — our intuitive administration console. For customers who require anti-malware only, this is the solution.

Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business, SELECT

Workstation & File Server Security, Application Whitelisting and Control, Device Control and Web Control form the protection roster of the Select tier. Also included is a mobile protection solution which consists of an endpoint security agent and Mobile Device Management (or MDM). If your needs include protecting mobile workforce and enforcing IT policy, SELECT might be the right tier for you.

Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business, ADVANCED

At the ADVANCED tier, Kaspersky adds data protection in the form of file or full-disk encryption. Another new offering, Kaspersky Systems Management, combines security with IT efficiency. This broad set of features includes essential tools allowing the administrator to:

  • Create and store images and remotely deploy systems.
  • Prioritise the treatment of hardware and software vulnerabilities with a powerful combination of advanced Vulnerability Scanning and intelligent Patch Management.
  • Track licence usage and compliance with Software Licence Management.
  • Set data and infrastructure access policies for users and guests with Network Admission Control (NAC).
  • Deploy and install updates and new software to users remotely from the central console.

Kaspersky Total Security for Business

Our flagship offering, Kaspersky Total Security for Business, combines all previous tiers and further enhances your security posture with additional Web, Mail and Collaboration Server protection. This is the perfect solution for organisations with broad security requirements who demand the best protection for each network level.

Ruckus Wireless Connected Learning through better WiFi

Friday, December 13th, 2013

Join Net-Ctrl and Ruckus Wireless at BETT 2014 on stand F121. Where we will also have Kaspersky Lab showcasing their Endpoint Security portfolio.

Connected Learning through Better Wi-Fi

Schools and school districts face increasing challenges to provide higher-speed, more reliable Wi-Fi to students, teachers and staff. New mandates such as digital textbooks and 1:1 initiatives require entire classes to concurrently get online to view material, collaborate on projects and present their work.

Schools need strong security, full coverage, and consistent connections even when entire classes start sending videos at the same time. But for most educational institutions, tighter budgets and limited IT staffs make the transition impossible.

Fortunately, Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi provides the technology that gives schools a cost-effective wireless infrastructure that’s in a class by itself. With Ruckus, educational institutions gain:

  • Consistent, reliable connectivity no other Wi-Fi system can touch
  • Up to four times the coverage and higher performance using fewer APs
  • The lowest cost of ownership, including easier installation and Zero Touch IT
  • Support for standard 802.1x, WPA (PSK) and WPA-2 (AES) security, plus automatic wireless setting and encryption key security
  • Comprehensive onboarding and security management solutions that ensure hassle free, safe connectivity with distinct privileges for students, teachers, staff and other groups.

Ruckus ZoneFlex access points (APs) feature BeamFlex, a high-gain, directional Smart antenna array that monitors the environment and dynamically adjusts the signal to the best performing path, automatically steering around interference and obstacles. This ensures the strongest signal, highest throughput and least interference so that classes are focused on learning instead of waiting for a connection.

With ZoneFlex, WLAN configuration can be performed in minutes through an on-screen Wizard. Deploying APs is radically streamlined as well. Since Ruckus delivers the best coverage, site surveys are much easier and ZoneFlex APs can be placed quickly in more convenient locations. And from a single management point, IT administrators can easily add SSIDs across the entire system to support specific traffic types or user groups, including guests, creating a single robust WLAN that’s a ubiquitous utility for everyone.

Ruckus Wi-Fi provides the foundation infrastructure needed for classrooms of the future and improved administrative and operational system support.
