SALEM, N.H., Feb. 25, 2013

SALEM, N.H., Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Enterasys Networks, a Siemens
Enterprise Communications Company, is delivering OneFabric Connect, a
first-of-its-kind offering that enables the unprecedented integration of
third-party applications into the OneFabric Control Center for dramatically
improved enterprise mobility, zero-effort onboarding and BYOD support. The
enhancements include integration with third-party solutions for Mobile Device
Management (MDM), next-generation firewall and web filtering, Unified
Communication (UC) and infrastructure support – all interoperating in a new,
one-of-a-kind ecosystem. With no vendor lock-in, Enterasys customers have the
flexibility and choice to integrate third-party tools, applications and legacy
network infrastructure via OneFabric Connect, reducing Total Cost of Ownership
and eliminating the management of multiple consoles.

OneFabric Connect allows seamless  integration with dozens of industry leading
partners, including MobileIron, AirWatch and JAMF Casper Software for MDM
integration; Avaya and Polycom for UC; and Palo Alto Networks and iboss
Security for next-generation firewall and web filtering. Enterasys is actively
working to add new partners to this ecosystem.

Key Benefits

  oIntegrates with MDM to extend zero-effort onboarding to mobile devices for
    transparent high quality and consistent user experience.
  oConsolidates all management and control to a single pane of glass for the
    highest degree of operational simplicity and automation, offering advanced
    analytics, visibility and control across multiple applications (i.e. UC,
    firewall, web filtering, etc.) to provide a better user experience and
    operational efficiencies.
  oProvides centralized visibility and granular control of the enterprise
    network fabric – both wired and wireless, enabling IT staff to avoid
    time-consuming configuration tasks, greatly reducing TCO.

Executive Perspectives

Ali Youssef, Wireless Solutions Architect, Henry Ford Health System
"With so many wireless users and medical devices on our network at one time,
it can be difficult to manage, track and maintain control. But with OneFabric
Control Center and the AirWatch MDM solution, we have full visibility of
devices accessing the network which allows us to provide a better experience
for our physicians, administrators and patients."

Dr. Geoffrey Alagoda, Director of Information and Communication Services,
Christ Church Grammar School
"With OneFabric Connect, we have seamless integration across our
virtualization, third-party infrastructure and legacy network equipment, all
from a single console. Enterasys was the only vendor able to provide us with
this level of simplicity and robust management control, with the ability to
implement a best of breed approach to our IT infrastructure."

Brian Newlon, Network Manager, Marietta College
"Enterasys OneFabric Control Center is a great tool not just for securing and
managing Enterasys switches and wireless APs but also third-party products
such as legacy Cisco switches and Cisco Access Points. The OneFabric Connect
solution has helped us reduce the workload of our IT resources by providing a
simple and elegant single pane of glass for managing all our Enterasys and
third-party devices that are currently deployed in our network."

Paul Martini, CEO, iboss Security
"One of the biggest concerns we hear from IT departments and CIOs is threats
to their networks and the impact that has on productivity. There is a
heightened demand on enterprise networks and a critical need for increased
security, simplicity and resiliency. Our integration with Enterasys OneFabric
Connect provides customers with location-based policy enforcement on the
network and application layer which provides them more control over their
wired and wireless network operations."

Chris Crowell, President and CEO, Enterasys Networks
"We listen to our customers and understand that enterprise mobility is causing
network performance, security and management issues for IT. With OneFabric
Connect, we are providing a solution that integrates seamlessly with a
customer's existing IT applications and infrastructure. This is an example of
how we are not only solving customer problems but also providing a more
flexible set of options for how they grow their networks in the future."

Craig Mathias, Principal Analyst, Farpoint Group
"Today's multi-vendor IT environments clearly require a degree of operational
integration that has been unavailable to this point. Enterasys has taken a big
step forward with OneFabric Connect, enabling the implementation of truly
integrated IT solutions that are easy to manage, eliminate complexity,
redundancy, and opportunities for error, and which are very cost-effective.
Integration on demand? It's here."
