SALEM, N.H., Aug. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Enterasys Networks, a Siemens
Enterprise Communications Company, has been awarded a Readers' Choice Award by
eSchool Media for its Network Access Control, also known as Mobile IAM, a
comprehensive BYOD solution that provides total security, full IT control and
predictable network experience for all users. The awards honor the
top-of-the-line products and services in educational technology, as chosen by
readers of the publication. Educators and administrators from K-12 schools,
colleges and universities throughout North America had the opportunity to
nominate their favorite education technology products or services for a two
month period earlier this year.

"The success of Enterasys Mobile IAM in education can be attributed to its
ability to securely manage BYOD networks within schools, while providing
extensive network authentication and identity-based access control," said Bob
Nilsson, director of vertical solutions marketing at Enterasys. "Winning an
eSchool Media Readers' Choice Award validates the extensive work we are doing
to provide the K-12 and higher-ed markets with the highest quality education
technology. Business in our education sector increased by 22 percent in fiscal
2012, and we are looking to bring that number even higher over the next year."

Mobile IAM has allowed K-12 schools, colleges and universities to advance to
the next level in education technology. The solution can support devices
ranging from the latest mobile Wi-Fi devices and cutting edge technology to
older computers and game stations. With Mobile IAM, Enterasys customers can
operate their individual networks securely and support the growing demand for
BYOD in the classroom. As a result, student demands for an enhanced classroom
experience are met, while educators are provided the assurance they need that
their networks are secure and within their control, a win-win for all users.

"We received nearly 700 nominations this year, which is a true testament to
the competitive nature of these awards," said Dennis Pierce, editor in chief
at eSchool Media. "The selection of winners this year truly represents the
education technology products and services that have proven to be effective
throughout K-12 schools and higher-ed campuses across the nation. Our goal is
to provide readers with valuable information about the most efficient and
effective products on the market that will best serve their technology needs."

The winners will be recognized in a special feature published in the
July/August 2013 edition of eSchool News and eCampus News, as well as on
eSchoolNews.com, eCampusNews.com, and eClassroomNews.com. To learn more about
