APCON Selected by Portland Community College for Network Security Solution
PCC to deploy APCON’s IntellaStore II platform for network monitoring and increased data visibility across primary campus and data center locations
APCON, a leading provider of intelligent network monitoring and security solutions, today announced that Portland Community College (PCC) has selected APCON’s IntellaStore II network monitoring solution to enhance security and vulnerability analysis throughout the college’s central data center and network core locations.
According to Scot Brooks, network engineer for PCC, the APCON solution was chosen as part of a network visibility and security initiative. The project is aimed at complementing a recent redesign of PCC’s network. The IntellaStore II was selected based on its unique ability to introduce the highest level of data visibility throughout the network and maintain compatibility with the latest security and network management tools PCC has selected to incorporate into its network architecture. The IntellaStore II’s packet capture and store functionality provides additional capability, enabling troubleshooting across PCC’s monitoring deployment.
“Businesses with multiple locations appreciate the convenience of an all-in-one monitoring appliance such as IntellaStore II,” said Richard Rauch, president and CEO of APCON. “For Portland Community College, a big factor was the ability of IntellaStore II to capture network traffic from across the network and aggregate, filter, groom, and send the data to the preferred analysis tools.”
Brooks said PCC also has appreciated the level of service provided by APCON’s Professional Services Team throughout the transition. “They are extremely responsive to our needs and are quick to answer whenever we need it,” Brooks said.
IntellaStore II is a complete network visibility solution for midsize data centers and remote locations, combining APCON's world class data monitoring switch with integrated traffic capture for analysis. Network engineers can monitor data center networks plus analyze traffic and application performance all within a single solution, reducing costs and improving problem resolution.
