Network Access Control doesn’t have to be hard


Network administrators and IT departments often see Network Access Control as a burden. NetAttest EPS changes that perception. Easily implement Network Access Control and provide users with the most convenient solution on any device or operating system.

NetAttest EPS is a complete, port-based network access solution and uses the IEEE 802.1X standard to act as an authentication and authorisation server. It's ideal for protecting both large networks and small networks, in one location or many, and it protects the wire, Wi-Fi and VPN.

  • Protect your network from unauthorised access
  • Mitigate against breaches and costly data loss
  • Deploy certificates for both user and device authentication
  • Authorise user access to permitted network resources

All-in-One-solution


NetAttest EPS has everything you need for complete Network Access Control, right out of the box. It’s vendor-agnostic and easily integrates with almost all third-party products, reducing the overall costs and making it vendor-agnostic at the same time.

  • Authentication, Authorisation, and Accounting for user resource requests
  • EAP authentication including MAC address, one-time passwords, and certificate-based authentication
  • Acts as a dedicated or subordinate certificate authority and integrates with existing Public Key Infrastructures

802.1X WLAN access control


NetAttest EPS makes WLAN access control as simple and powerful. Guests, temporary employees or contractors can use the self-service portal to request temporary access to the Wi-Fi.

  • Includes self-service portal for temporary Wi-Fi access (ideal for guests, contractors, and temporary employees)
  • Directs users to specific network resources
  • Provides an internal temporary access user database

Full back-up and redundancy


You’ll gain ultimate peace of mind with a super-fast, integrated back-up and restore process. NetAttest EPS can also create redundant installations using RADIUS servers to provide a contingency for certificate authority (CA) issues.

  • Full back-up completes in less than 20 seconds
  • Full restores take just 100 seconds
  • Full configuration (including CA configuration) automatically shared daily between redundant installations

Access Control Beyond MAC Address Filtering


It’s impossible to entirely avoid dealing with machines that only come with MAC addresses (especially in areas such as healthcare and automotive) as an identity. At Soliton, we’ve worked hard to balance these requirements with your security needs.

Using a dedicated database for MAC addresses, NetAttest EPS simplifies the process of issuing access for these devices:

  • It gives you all the tools you need to add new devices to your network quickly
  • A secure MAC address database with storage for up to 200,000 addresses
  • A dedicated interface for registering new MAC addresses

KeyManager: 3-step Certificate Administration


The Soliton KeyManager app makes it easy for network administrators to use short-life certificates for enhanced security. The application offers a user-self-service to request and install user and device certificates automatically on any device in just three steps. The Soliton KeyManager app sends the user a warning to renew the certificates when users click the link to renew the certificate.

Benefits

  • Reduces time spent on certificate management by the IT team
  • Adds security to the Simple Certificate Enrolment Protocol (SCEP) via a unique secret per request
  • Enables both public and private keys to be generated
  • Exporting the key is impossible, thanks to the way it is stored

"It’s so fast to deploy: A leading automotive supply chain manufacturer made the switch to the live environment over a lunch break. Initial set up takes less than 5 minutes — full NAC is up and running in 30 minutes."

Wizard-guided installation/management


Soliton's approach is always to take out complexity and enable easy control and management for IT. The wizard-guided feature of NetAttest EPS allows a quick, intuitive dashboard making it straightforward to install and maintain.

  • Questionnaire on each possible configuration 
  • Context-based manuals provided in the portal
  • Outstanding tasks based on questionnaire visible
  • Task driven menu builder for optimised operation dashboard
