"Enterprises must manage the explosive growth of physical and virtual devices, while providing flexible access and maintaining security," said Ram Appalaraju, vice president of marketing at Enterasys Networks. "With the S-Series, Enterasys supports the scale and granularity that virtualized data centers require. This capability is especially important for virtual desktops, as new devices, such as iPads and smartphones, constantly require reauthorization when they come onto and leave the network."
