Austin, Texas–July 23, 2007– Mirage Networks®, Inc., developer of patented Network Access Control (NAC) technology, today announced Mahidol Wittayanusorn School, Thailand has chosen Mirage Endpoint Control to protect its network from threats and policy violations which can negatively impact operational cost and productivity.

"Our network must accommodate many unmanaged endpoints, which has always been challenging," said Boonnatee Sakboonnatee, head of the IT division for Mahidol Wittayanusorn School. "Mirage Endpoint Control allows us to see what is accessing our network, and was exceptionally easy to deploy. Within minutes of installation and configuration, we were able to identify and quarantine infected student devices."

The Mirage Endpoint Control solution monitors all network devices both before and after users attempt to log onto the network, combining pre-admission authentication and compliance checks with post-admission behavioral monitoring. The process delivers a comprehensive, full-cycle NAC solution. Mirage requires no agents to deploy, no signatures to rollout, no inline devices to install and no switching upgrades.

"We are very pleased to have Mahidol Wittayanusorn join our list of education customers who selected Mirage not only for its ease of deployment and effectiveness in securing unmanaged endpoints, but for its innovative approach to solving a difficult problem," stated Greg Stock, president and CEO, Mirage Networks. "We remain dedicated to providing the best solution on the market for securing the dynamic networks of schools, colleges, and universities."

Mirage Networks´ partner in the region, nForce Security Systems, helped deploy the Mirage Endpoint Control solution at Mahidol Wittayanusorn School. "Our goal was to help the school secure its networks and allow IT staff to focus on projects instead of problems," said Mark Nakrop Niamnamtham, managing director for nForce Thailand. "Mirage Endpoint Control allowed us to achieve that goal."
