Ian Kilpatrick, chairman Wick Hill Group, commented: “Network access control has made a major resurgence and macmon’s new generation solution gives organisations the tools to both secure and innovate their environment. With wireless and mobility impacting all parts of business, NAC is a fundamental requirement for management and compliance.
“We have been very successful in Germany with macmon and are delighted to have the opportunity to replicate that success in the UK. The solutions offer major opportunities for the channel. While installation can be done in under a day, macmon offers significant professional service opportunities.”

“We have dealt effectively with the challenge of providing secure access control in Germany, where we have become a market leader. I am absolutely sure that companies in the UK are facing the same sort of access control challenges. With macmon NAC Smartly Simple, we can support both the UK channel and UK end users in dealing with the issues facing them around secure access.
