Bradford Networks Products Overview

Knowing the makeup of your constantly changing network, switches, routers, hubs, and wireless access points, is fundamental to making sure it is secure. Network Sentry provides a real-time view of your dynamic network infrastructure ensuring that you can detect and prevent any changes that would introduce risk.

Network Sentry

Bradford’s Network Sentry™ network access control solution integrates with IT infrastructure and correlates network, security, endpoint device, and user information to provide total visibility and control over every user and device accessing your network.

Easily integrated into existing network environments, Network Sentry’s out-of-band architecture leverages the inherent security capabilities of existing network equipment along with authentication and authorization technologies such as 802.1X, RADIUS and Active Directory for identity management. By leveraging existing technology investments, organizations can quickly add advanced visibility and security capabilities to their current networks and avoid the need for expensive forklift upgrades or the scalability and management challenges of adding in-line equipment.

Through an easy-to-use web interface, Network Sentry provides powerful administrative tools for managing network and security operations. Its inherent flexibility lets IT organizations gracefully evolve their security projects from initial trials to pilot rollouts to full deployments to ensure effective security policy implementations with minimal impact on user experience.

Network Sentry can be deployed either on a dedicated hardware appliance, as a virtual appliance or “in the cloud” via SaaS (Security-as-a-Service). The same functionality is delivered in all deployment models ensuring that Network Sentry can adapt to the unique needs of any network environment.

Network Sentry Analytics

Network Sentry/Analytics provides a new perspective on the connections being made to your network. It leverages the data collected by Network Sentry network access control (NAC) to deliver reports and trends that keep you informed on the devices, users, and connections being made to your network. Organizations gain long-term visibility and answers they need to help ensure wireless network capacity, software licenses, mobile device support, and compliance. - See more at:

Network Sentry/Analytics can be leveraged to report on multiple Network Sentry servers. The data is aggregated from each server into a data mart and archived, analyzed, correlated, and reported. Roles and policies can be defined so the right set of reports are read by the right set of people. - See more at:
